Emotional Intelligence/Self Awareness= Improved Bottom Line

Does this sound familiar?

Bob is a manager in a medium-sized organization and when he gets stressed he pushes his sense of urgency onto other people. This behavior affects others’ work and emotional stress. When confronted, Bob becomes defensive or aggressive.

Do you think any of Bob’s associates want to have a “Crucial Conversation” with him? How do you think Bob’s behavior affects productivity, creativity, and morale in his department? The most important question is: Does Bob even realize he is coming across this way? Most of the time he doesn’t.

Would you like to know how to keep his destructive behavior from affecting the bottom line? I can help you with that.

Bob may be lacking self-awareness which is defined in the book “Emotional Intelligence 2.0″ as “your ability to accurately perceive your own emotions in the moment and understand your tendencies across situations.”

What would it mean to your organization’s profitability if you could improve an executive/manager’s behavior simply by identifying it-creating self-awareness-and developing new strategies to deal with the situations? The answer is clear. I have helped organizations like yours see the positive results by making an owner/manager aware of how a specific behavior of theirs is negatively impacting sales, productivity, and morale.

The goal with self- awareness is quite simple. Identify those situations that create strong emotions, spend time reflecting and thinking about options, implement a new behavior or strategy, and tweak the behavior depending on the result. People with high self-awareness see this as a life-long skillset for continual development and the benefit is a higher quality work and personal life.
