3 RESEARCH-BACKED REASONS YOUR LEADERS NEED EQ TRAINING
A recent review took a close look at the emotional intelligence of leaders. Their goal was to understand if the EQ of a leader impacts their direct reports, and if so, how. In looking at the leader-follower relationships of more than 6300 leaders, three key points came to light:
- Employees reporting to high EQ leaders are more likely to perform higher and have greater job satisfaction.
- Employees reporting to high EQ leaders engage in more organizational citizenship behaviors (such as showing altruism, courtesy, sportsmanship, conscientiousness, and civic virtue.).
- Employees rate their leaders’ EQ as highly valuable across cultures and around the world.
