Social and emotional intelligence is the ability to be aware of our own emotions and those of others, in the moment, and to use that information to manage ourselves and manage our relationships. It is not about just being nice. There’s much more to it, including personal power, that inner knowledge that we can handle what life unfolds. It’s about integrity – knowing – and choosing – what’s right. It’s about building trust AND building bonds. It is about being more effective in our personal and professional relationships. It is about making a difference.
Leadership is more challenging than ever and ‘old story’ leadership no longer creates the results it once did. Leaders are being called upon to shift the values and cultures of organizations to create institutions of innovation and creativity. Only leaders who are inspired themselves know how to inspire others, who then inspire others, are the leaders of the future and have the ability to create catalytic change.
