At SpaYse, we tend to work with executive and managerial level roles. Emotional intelligence is a very important skill in leadership. It is said to have five main elements – self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills. Understanding these and matching them to a team normally results in a harmonious working environment.
We’ve been assessing emotional intelligence within our recruitment process for many years now and so it has almost become second nature. But signs of having high emotional intelligence starts with understanding your emotions and the consequences of your actions. Not only that but being able to manage your emotions and your reactions. The ability to organise yourself and motivate your team to resolve any problems effectively. Being able to admit when you are wrong is another indicator.
Every successful leader should know how to be empathetic towards others, especially if you want to earn their respect. Being able to inspire and communicate your point of view effectively whilst also building rapport makes for strong relationships.
Leaders work towards goal constantly and consistently. They demonstrate to other employees how the work is done and lead by example.
