What Makes a Great Leader?
When working with leaders in your organization, make sure they are emotionally healthy. Check out what Daniel Goleman said about making sure leaders have E.I. Emotional Intelligence.
“I have found, however, that the most effective leaders are alike in one crucial way: they all have a high degree of what has come to be known as emotional intelligence. It’s not that IQ and technical skills are irrelevant. They do matter, but mainly as “threshold capabilities.” That is, they are the entry-level requirements for executive positions. But my research, along with other recent studies, clearly shows that emotional intelligence (E.I.) is the sine qua non of leadership. Without it, a person can have the best training in the world, an incisive, analytical mind, and an endless supply of smart ideas, but still won’t make a great leader.” –Daniel Goleman
