In times of crisis, the need for emotional intelligence (EQ) leadership becomes even more pronounced. In a world that is constantly becoming more complex, more collaborative, and more uncertain, the necessity of EQ to create successful results becomes even more pronounced.
Join the EGN live webinar on Thursday, April 27, 2023, from 9-10.00 AM CET and meet Denmark’s leading expert in Emotional Intelligence and Mind Control, Mikkel Severin, CEO of Mind Control.
In a world dominated by war, inflation, the so-called “new demands” of Generation Z, constant volatility, and towering levels of stress and malaise, the winners are those who master human interactions.
Emotional intelligence is the comparative advantage
The business case for EQ is second to none. But how do companies really stand when it comes to EQ as a strategic priority? How many prioritize it? How do we measure and improve EQ? And what characterizes individuals with high and low EQ?
Some of the core competencies within EQ are self-awareness, self-regulation, and empathy. High EQ drives good leadership, psychological safety, accountability, optimal team performance, effective conflict resolution, and excellent negotiation. Unfortunately, many companies promote people to leadership positions without regard for their EQ, with significant consequences for the department and the company – both financially and humanely.
EQ is deprioritized among average companies in times of crisis
In times of crisis, EQ as a strategic priority becomes even more important. Unfortunately, many companies in times of crisis act through top-down control, hard KPIs, lack of involvement, lack of understanding, lack of listening, and where employees are viewed as a resource that needs to be cut. Often with catastrophic consequences, internal distrust, towering stress levels, silo formation, fear, “retention challenges”, etc. Challenges that the top 1% of companies do not have.
In the webinar, you will gain insight into what sets the top 1% of companies apart from the average and why the top 1% of companies make people a strategic priority. Not just one strategic priority – the most important strategic priority. And as a result, they create massive results. Imagine being met with understanding, openness, and recognition in a safe and inspiring environment where perspectives can be discussed and challenged, and the best solutions win in times of crisis. Where the focus is on the team and community rather than ego, fear, and information vacuums. Welcome to high performance and emotional intelligence in times of crisis.
