Emotional Intelligence Integral to Career Advancement of Women in Business
CANBERRA, Australia July, 2012 – Women in business and professional women in leadership positions have proven that they are better team leaders and performance managers if they continue to enhance and exhibit high emotional intelligence. Emotionally mature professional women consistently espouse behaviour that demonstrates resilience and decisiveness, according to one emotional intelligence expert. Through the use of both learned and innate emotional intelligence techniques, women are able to manage stress and drive change - two of the major challenges that all leaders contend with. www.performancepartnership.com.au/
Emotional intelligence expert Louise Carter says, “Emotional Intelligence or EI is one’s ability to decipher and control emotions. People with high emotional intelligence understand that there are reasons why people feel a certain way and recognise that ‘how they feel’ not only affects other people but also affects how well they themselves perform their tasks. They understand and accept that different people have different emotions and have various ways of showing such emotions. These people think before they act or say anything because they are considerate of other people’s feelings.”
Louise Carter, CEO and founder of Performance Partnership, encourages and motivates leaders to develop their emotional intelligence skills. A successful woman in business herself, Louise believes that Emotional Intelligence (EI) accounts for 58% of performance in all types of jobs, making EI the strongest driver of leadership and personal excellence. Performance Partnership maintains that emotional intelligence has a strong and direct impact on leadership behaviour. www.performancepartnership.com.au/
“People with high emotional intelligence manage themselves and their relationships in the most effective way,” Louise says. “They achieve success in most of their endeavours because people want to work with them and be in their team.”
Performance Partnership have designed a workshop specifically for women who are looking for the leadership edge - the Emotionally Intelligent Leader Workshop for professional women and women in business. The workshop, based on the work of Daniel Goleman, shares the critical components of emotional intelligence and how one can develop such components. At the end of the workshop, participants take away new information on how to capitalise on their own emotional intelligence and use the same to lead high performing teams.
