“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
We can always do things better, look at things differently and work on continual self- improvement to enable us to become:
“The best possible version of ourselves.”
To get a true picture of where you think you are as a leader and where others think you are? Why not sign up for the Leadership Vital Signs (LVS) tool. Using the data from this report, we can work with you to enhance your leadership style and performance, using the key drivers and outcomes below:
Leadership and EI
Emotional Intelligence plays a huge part in the role of leadership today. How would you like to measure your EI and learn how to put practical, actionable steps in place to improve performance, by taking the ‘Six Seconds Emotional Intelligence’ Assessment Tool? (SEI) (Also available in 360 for greater feedback)
Most of the time, your emotional competence is sufficient to navigate the complexities of your daily work and life. However, in times of challenge, complexity, or stress, an increased EQ will strengthen your leadership.
What is Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional intelligence (EQ), as defined by Six Seconds, is a set of competencies that allows you to apply thinking and feeling to make optimal decisions. While many people have been taught to “leave their emotions at the door,” Six Seconds’ premise is that emotions are essential to effective decision-making and motivation. If you use your EQ effectively you’ll be better able to influence others, to communicate, and to stay focused on the critical path. This is why Harvard Business Review says emotional intelligence is “the key to professional success.”
Why is Emotional Intelligence important to you as a leader?
A leader’s job is to engage a team to do work beyond the capacity of any one individual. It is about enrolling people to utilise their full potential. When a leader is aware, authentic, passionate, and acts in integrity, s/he will build trust, commitment and alignment to foster an environment where people can bring their best to the table.
There is no formula for great leadership, no magical path to follow. A great leader makes her or his own path – one that is uniquely based on his or her own skills and attributes. You cannot imitate someone else’s style or use a prescribed set of behaviours. Instead you need to carefully assess yourself to know your own strengths and vulnerabilities, and move forward. This SEI report will give insight to build and apply your EQ to improve leadership.
By working with Momentum4, and using our simply and effective process, Engage – activate – Reflect, we can work with you to assess what is the right tool for us to engage with. Then, using the data, get a clear picture of what strengths you have and what areas need more focus for developing. Collaboratively, we can then, create a personal development plan. After a period of around 3-6 months, we can re-measure and look at outcomes. What has improved? What still needs work? What have you learnt by going through the process?
