There are few things that are certain in the world. As said by Benjamin Franklin, “Nothing is certain but death and taxes.” However, people are wired to prefer consistency and fear change. In our earliest ancestors, change could lead to detrimental circumstances; weather changes, death, location changes, lack of food and water, new, unknown threats. These realities became hard-wired into our psyche and even now in 2020, the instinctual reaction to change is typically fear.
Emotional Intelligence, often referenced as EQ, is a key component to effective leadership in businesses and organizational growth. Emotional Intelligence is, in simplest terms, described as possessing the knowledge of what is being felt, what emotions mean, and how those emotions can impact others. But great leaders know that EQ is more than that because they understand how emotions drive behavior and apply that knowledge to motivate those around them.
