3 Reasons Why Leaders Need to Focus on Emotional Intelligence

1. Emotionally Intelligent Leaders Earn More

In a multinational consulting firm, partners who showed high management focus emotional intelligence (EQ) competencies earned 139% more than the lower EQ partners (Boyatzis, 1999).

2. Emotionally Intelligent Leaders Have Greater Leadership Success

UCLA research indicates that only 7% of leadership success is attributable to intellect; 93% of success comes from trust, integrity, authenticity, honesty, creativity, presence, and resilience (All EI competencies) (cited in Cooper and Sawaf, 1996).

3. Emotionally Intelligent Leaders Are More Likely to be Hired

The executives selected based on emotional competence were far more likely to perform in the top third based on salary bonuses for performance of the divisions they led: 87% were in the top third. In addition, emotionally intelligent leaders with these competencies outperformed their targets by 15 to 20 percent. Those who lacked them under-performed by almost 20% (McClelland, 1999).

Leadership Development Case Study:

One Example of How Business Leadership Development Creates Organizational Success.

Challenge: A healthcare company was growing rapidly and wanted to brand both their company and their employees in order to attract new workers. Specifically, the senior team was all the same age and was in need of more bench strength.

Strategy:

True North Leadership, Inc. created and provided a seven day business leadership training development program over four months based on Mangaement Focus Emotional Intelligence.

  • Key leaders had individual executive development coaching.
  • Each leader’s team had facilitated sessions to help transfer the learning to the line.
  • An assortment of leadership assessments (over the course of one year): the 360-degree

feedback Emotional Competence Inventory (ECI), Organizational Climate Survey (OCS), team
surveys and the Inventory of Leaderships Style (ILS).

Results:

Many of the leadership development participants were promoted, saving the company recruiting dollars. Tough decisions were made to hold employees accountable and as a result, some workers were redeployed. Post leadership assessments demonstrated that the emotionally intelligent leaders were: more visionary, doing more coaching, building better relationships, creating more team development and participation, and increasing employee retention. In working with the Human Resources Department to establish the Return on Investment (ROI) for the leadership development training programs, it was calculated that the over $100,000 investment had a $700,000 return.

In addition, Climate Factors assessed at the end of the leadership development program resulted in a:

15% increase in cooperation within the teams
15% increase in congeniality within the teams
12% increase in clarity of expectations
12% increase in understanding the mission and direction
21% increase in satisfaction with performance rewards
14% increase in risk taking
9% increase in innovation
