“What distinguishes great leaders from merely good ones? It’s not toughness, vision or industry smarts. It’s their Emotional Intelligence – a potent combination of self management and relationship skills.” Harvard Business Review Sept 2008.
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is about how we are ‘being’ as a leader, it is not about IQ or how high our ‘cognitive’ intelligence scores might be. EI is about our capacity for everyday skills in understanding ourselves and others, developing effective and engaging relationships, our approach to problem solving and how we manage stress.
At Catalyst we specialise in profiling and developing the key competencies of Emotional Intelligence (EQ-i):
If you or your business requires leadership development, leadership skills training or leadership coaching for your executives, directors or managers, Catalyst can provide effective training programmes that will deliver leaders who can communicate and deliver results effectively. EQi is an emotional intelligence assessment that we can run for your organisation, practice or company that looks at decision making, self expression, interpersonal relationship skills, self-perception and stress management.
