Why invest in coaching leaders for Emotional Intelligence?

This might seem like a question with an obvious answer...

Surely, you want to focus on Compassionate Leadership or Ethical Leadership or Inclusive Leadership or one of the myriad of different leadership models that have been developed in recent months.  

Yet, as leaders and researcher try to make sense of how to lead during a pandemic, new models of leadership are still underpinned by leaders' Emotional Intelligence and their ability to use it. 

One thing is certain, that the pandemic has meant that the demands of employees are changing.

Expectations and ambitions are not the same as they were a few years ago, and a global pandemic has only re-affirmed those opinions.

To be a leader in the current climate requires adaptability and no little amount of perseverance.

Employees want greater flexibility whether they are working from home or the office, better awareness and action on equality and diversity, mental health, and sustainability and the environment.

And consistently the polls and it is also our experience suggests that leaders and their employees are placing a higher value on people who can use their Emotional Intelligence in the workplace.

Many leaders are taking the time now to ensure that they and the organisations they represent can flourish amidst these demands.

This has been seen across the UK and around the world, in businesses, charities, academia and other sectors as managers and leaders look to develop their leadership styles and techniques to best accommodate these changes.

The ability to adopt the leadership style most suitable to particular scenarios is one that proves pivotal in instilling trust, clarity and productivity in employees and workplace environments – in person or remote.

From ‘Visionary’ styles, harnessing the power of a collective purpose, to ‘Commanding’ styles, important when leading in times of crisis, the pathway to success in this rapidly changing work settings does not lie in one direction, but many.

EBW Global’ coaching approach, with its focus on Occupational Emotional Intelligence or Business EQ, grants leaders the opportunity to explore this changing landscape using rigorous and powerful insights from the EBW Emotional Intelligence Assessment for Leaders, One to One Coaching tailored to personal development, Leadership masterclasses and much more.
