Leading With Emotional Intelligence

What sets one leader apart from another leader? Why do some leaders have an ability to motivate themselves and those around them to accomplish great things?

There are several factors that create success for a leader; however, Emotional Intelligence is being quickly rated among the top indicators. In the article "EQ vs. IQ - emotional intelligence, intelligence quotient", Cynthia L. Kemper states, “For those in leadership positions, emotional intelligence skills account for close to 90 percent of what distinguishes outstanding leaders from those judged as average.”

Always Leave a Place Better Than You Found It

Written by Michelle Braden, CEO Posted in Blog

Do you remember those things you mother always said to you?  Do you also remember when you realized those things she said were meaningful to life?   One of the things my mother used to always say was, "Always leave a place better than you found it".  She was referring to cleanliness.  She taught me when I stayed at someone's house, before leaving I should put clean sheets on the bed, empty the trash and make sure the rooms I used (including the bathroom) looked better than when I arrived.  I value this lesson and still live into it.

Negotiating With Emotional Intelligence

Written by Stasia Rice Posted in Blog

There are many opportunities in our lives and careers to negotiate for what we want:

·         The cost, scope or schedule of your next project

·         The sale price of a car or house

·         Your starting salary or vacation benefits for a new job

·         Your upcoming performance raise

Many notable authors and scholars have pointed out the advantages of using emotional intelligence in these scenarios.  My experience with these concepts is that I need to break them down in to very simple terms so that I can remember them in the “heat of the moment” and under the stress that negotiations typically put on us.

Emotional Intelligence - Is It the Foundation of Great Leadership?

Posted in Blog

Emotional Intelligence - Is It the Foundation of Great Leadership?

Decades ago, this concept of Emotional Intelligence in leadership would not have appeared in many writings about what makes great leadership. There are plenty critics of the concept and its relationship to successful leaders. My intent is not to defend nor prove any research that has been done. Rather, I want to share my years of observation and study of leaders and the impact of EQ.  Let's start with the definition of Emotional Intelligence - skill in perceiving, understanding, and managing emotions and feelings.  There are more expanded and varying versions but this one captures the essence of the definition.

The Power of Habit: Part II

DATE: June 10, 2015
TIME: 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM EDT
COST: Free

In part one of this webinar we learned how habits start, why habits are hard to break and steps to create productive habits. In his book The Power of Habit, Charles Duhigg interviewed a major in the Army who told him, “Once you see everything as a bunch of habits, it's like someone gave you the key to success." We are now going to dig into why some of us are more successful at creating productive habits than others and how to remove the barriers that keep us forming new habits.  We discuss:

  • Key steps in identifying the real barriers of creating desired habits
  • The role of will and belief
  • How to create the right triggers, routines and rewards to sustain a desired habit

Meet the MSBCoach team.

Our team consists of passionate and experienced people,
who love what they do and always look forward to face new challenges.
