When a business executive who has investigated and implemented numerous initiatives to improve company performance isn’t getting the results he wants, he tries something different.
He remembers reading an article about a leader—Andrew Miles—who credited his success to emotional intelligence. This intelligence, the article said, helped him engage his workforce and produce exceptional results.
It doesn’t take the executive long to arrange a meeting with Miles, who tells him that business leaders must rely on physical, mental, and emotional effort—with emotional effort being how we manage our emotions to ensure we deliver high-quality results more frequently.
To cultivate emotional intelligence, Miles says, a leader must focus on six distinct competencies: emotional self-awareness, emotional awareness of others, authenticity, emotional reasoning, emotional self-management, and inspiring performance.
Miles explains that emotional intelligence underlies our self-awareness, empathy, leadership, and resilience, which are all skills fundamental to our success.
