What makes a great leader?

Emotional IntelligenceWe all know, or have heard stories of, highly skilled people in business who have been promoted to a leadership position only to fail.  We also know of others that while seemingly average get promoted to a leadership position and have excelled!  What is the difference?

"There was a study done at Stanford, their business council, on what's the number one skill that people need to be successful in life.  This council said that it was self-awareness" - Fran LaMattina

In this episode Fran shares what emotional intelligence (EI) is, how it is a learned skill, and its application to leadership.  Daniel Goleman in his article  on 'What Makes A Leader' in the Harvard Business Review states that the higher the rank of a person considered to be a star performer, the more emotional intelligence capabilities showed up as the reason for his or her effectiveness.

These are the components of EI that Fran will walk you through:

  • Self-Awareness
  • Self-Regulation
  • Motivation
  • Empathy
  • Social Skill
