Social and Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace
Emotional intelligence (EQ) has been identified by 85% of employers as even more valuable than IQ, but it is often seen as something that you either have or don’t have. New science shows that it is possible to increase emotional intelligence with training and practice, which can benefit relationships both in and outside of the workplace.
In this episode of The Forward Thinking podcast, host Stephanie Barton, VP of Marketing and Communications at FCCS is joined by Maureen Breeze, Certified Executive Coach from the Institute for Social and Emotional Intelligence. Maureen will be speaking at the upcoming FCCS 2023 Director Leadership Conference and has joined the podcast today to discuss the importance of emotional agility. She highlights the need for leaders to increase their social and emotional intelligence in the workplace and offers tactics to improve EQ skills in ways that drive results effectively.
“The ability to read emotions and manage our own emotions and navigate the social landscape has never been more important.” — Maureen Breeze
