What Makes A Leader Pdf

IQ and technical skills are important, but emotional intelligence is the sine qua non of leadership. Emotional intelligence sets great leaders apart from the rest. Learn to recognize it in yourself. Recently I gave a seminar for the top or so leaders of a global manufacturing company, at the invitation of the head of HR. It was their.

Executive Summary Reprint: RH When asked to define the ideal leader, many would emphasize traits such as intelligence, toughness, determination, and vision—the qualities traditionally associated with leadership. Such skills and smarts are necessary but insufficient qualities for the leader. Often left off the list are softer, more personal qualities—but they are also essential. Although a certain degree of analytical and technical skill is a minimum requirement for success, studies indicate that emotional intelligence may be the key attribute that distinguishes outstanding performers from those who are merely adequate. In his research at nearly large, global companies, Goleman found that truly effective leaders are distinguished by a high degree of emotional intelligence. The chief components of emotional intelligence—self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill—can sound unbusinesslike, but Goleman, cochair of the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations, based at Rutgers University, found direct ties between emotional intelligence and measurable business results. Every businessperson knows a story about a highly intelligent, highly skilled executive who was promoted into a leadership position only to fail at the job.

Once you know their mental models you can put what you have to say in terms that will make most sense to them. The second kind, emotional empathy, means you can sense immediately how another person feels. This means you can fine-tune what you say so it has a positive impact.

These two kinds of empathy are essential for rapport and chemistry with another person. We use them in all our relationships.

And yet in our high-pressure world, with back-to-back meetings and a constant stream of incoming messages, too many leaders pay too little attention to the person in front of them. When leaders are assessed by others who know them well on the EI competencies needed for high-performance , poor listening very often shows up as a weakness.

Then there are the relationship skills, the fourth domain of EI.

Here common competencies for outstanding performance include teamwork and collaboration , influence, and helping others build their leadership abilities. It was their annual leadership development meeting, and HR wanted me to make both business and scientific cases for emotional intelligence as the active ingredient in strong leadership. So I gathered the most convincing data.

For instance, confidence in one form or another often shows up in these models.
