Evolve As A Leader
Strong leaders come in all shapes and forms. While leaders may stand out for various reasons, one of the most common is a great capacity for essential emotional intelligence skills. These skills involve social dexterity which may deal with emotions, both their own and those of others. Such areas as conflict management, temperament control and the ability to listen to others with empathy, compassion and understanding fall into this category. When used correctly, these skills can encourage improved business and employee performance.
Of course, leaders do not start out with all of these skills at the ready. They acquire them over time, learning from experience.
