1 Bad organisational climate. The organizational mood is described as a ‘climate’, and a leader’s emotional intelligence skills are a key ingredient in shaping the climate. A bad climate affects performance and productivity.
2. Internal culture stagnation. A culture of belief in the company, momentum, sharing, and teamwork is replaced by a toxic mix of infighting, politics and immediate self-interest. An emotional connection to the company gets lost. Leaders with a highly developed emotional intelligence will drive a culture that is conducive to the advancement of all things positive, for all the people involved and they know how to manage emotions in the process.
3. External sales stagnation. What happens in the inside of a company gets reflected and has an effect on the outside in the marketplace. That normally means customer neglect and also new sales neglect. Neglect means lower sales from both sources. Neglect does drive customers away and the emotional dependence they had on your company is diminished. Your company is now seen as just a supplier and not a contributor to their success.
If emotional intelligence helps leaders understand and meet employee’s human needs, it will have a profound impact on productivity and individual success.
The growing base of research consistently finds a powerful relationship between
emotional intelligence and leadership effectiveness. It is not surprising, then,
that experts propose that the development of emotional intelligence may be the key to advanced leadership and social influence.
