"Why You, As A Manager Need To Develop Emotional Intelligence?"

“Why you, as a manager, need to develop Emotional Intelligence?”

One of the most essential traits of effective managers is having emotional intelligence. It is what gives them the ability to motivate people and have a good understanding of the value of connecting with others. It doesn’t matter what kind of business you, yourself might be involved in, but as a company manager, you need to get to know your people. It’s a tough job. It’s tough because there are so many complexities, even idiosyncrasies and personal traits for every individual. In the final analysis, no two persons are really exactly alike.

Everyday Triggers.

 

Simple everyday triggers can prompt you to be mad, glad, sad or happy. This is because, over time, we cognitively develop prompters that allow us to feel a certain way about things and events. 6 pm on a Friday can make you feel excited and anticipating. It’s your poker night with the boys! You cry watching some silly late, late soap opera about a forlorn love affair. These emotions and triggers are examples of what make us rare and unique personalities, but it’s also what makes your job as a top honcho pretty darn hard. You must possess enough emotional intelligence to acquire an understanding of the guys who must follow your lead. When you don’t have this, your people would tend to feel disengaged at work.

In essence what this says is that if company leaders are not doing a good job at leading, it’s almost a sure thing, they lack the emotional intelligence to motivate their teams and push them to achieving top performance.

Here’s What Can Happen When Managers Lack Empathy Or Emotional Intelligence.

 

The worst thing about these managers without empathy is that they’re mostly unaware of it. It’s a sort of a behavioral pattern where they can’t see beyond their own biases and beliefs. As such, people who work with them become not only discouraged, they also get to feel like they’re living in hell! Pretty soon, they’d be dragging their feet going to work. Sure, there are many ways and styles of leadership, but one that doesn’t appreciate the values of working as a team will always bring down a company’s productivity.

There is today a continuing low level of job satisfaction among companies This is true surprisingly even among those employees who receive fat paychecks. Reason? Their leaders lack emotional intelligence and are therefore unable to empathize with their people.

So, How Do You Develop Your Emotional Intelligence?

 

There is no magic pill for this. Slowly but surely, get to know the guys in your team. Try to get insights and understanding of what’s going on and why these guys respond to orders and decisions in a certain way. The more you get to know about them, the clearer you’ll see their true motivations and how you can help make them better. Naturally, it will depend finally whether or not a person would want to change their bad habits and become a good potential leader, so really, you’ll need to get a feel for your people and hear them out. It can only be good for your organization.
