      Emotional Intelligence for Effective Working Relationships

      Human Resources

      Emotional intelligence and leadership are closely related concepts. So, it is no wonder that Emotional intelligence is an important indicator of organizational leadership success. Emotional intelligence is a general set of skills that can be applied to anyone and any environment. Understanding EI and mastering the skills involving emotional intelligence will greatly help you and your team in difficult situations.

      Emotionally intelligent people are self-aware and are alert to the verbal and non-verbal signals of others, ensuring that their communication skills and ability to build relationships are more effective.

      It has been shown that, Emotional Intelligence or EI, can be even more critical than the power of the cognitive brain usually measured with IQ. In others words, if you want to succeed, you would be much better off working on your soft skills, empathy, communication skills, understanding others and so on than to become better only at a specific technical skill.

      The Emotional Intelligence course presented here aims to familiarize you with EI. So, this course is an introduction to the field.

      Fostering Employee Accountability in the Workplace

      Human Resources

      Accountability can be difficult to find in the workplace, but it is one of the most important characteristics of high-performing teams and employees. In contrast, a lack of accountability can prevent businesses and individuals from reaching their full potential. 

      As a manager, it's up to you to make sure your team knows what they are supposed to do and that they have what they need to get the job done. So, you might think that being accountable means you're the one who gets blamed when things go wrong. In fact, accountability is about helping people to take responsibility for their obligations. Accountability, done effectively, is a skill you can develop just like any other skill, and while it is not a difficult skill to acquire and hone, it does require a high degree of conscious effort. When you do it right, you'll also find it the fastest way to improve morale.
