Sure there are a lot of Twitter Chats you could participate in.
But there isn’t one that I’m aware of that intersects Talent + Culture, where you’ll find:
- People who are inspired by incredible individuals driving organizations and creating dramatic change.
- Brands that are humanizing themselves as layers of hierarchy yield to emotionally-connected leaders.
- Innovative expertise which catalyzes transformational growth online and in real life.
At the intersection of Talent + Culture, you’re all welcomed for your like-mindedness and celebrated for your unique thinking.
At the intersection of Talent + Culture, you’re all right here.
Our community. Your community. The TalentCulture Community.
We welcome you all to join us for our new Twitter Chat called #TChat. The first one will be this Tuesday, November 16, from 8:00 – 9:00 p.m. ET where we’re going to discuss Emotional Intelligence and the importance of assessing it and developing it, which for us, is everything that makes a best place to work – the best talent (people) and the best workplace culture.
Discussing the intersection of Talent and Culture. We consider all the things that make a best place to work, individual career growth, and social community development — ideas to help your business and your career accelerate – the right people, the right ideas, at the right time. This includes all areas of HR, recruiting, career coaching, training and development, leadership development, product/service development, business development, ideation, marketing, social media, and much more. We also explore engagement, creativity, innovation and collaboration between businesses, employees, and social communities. It’s an open forum, so anyone interested is welcome. Be ready for a lively discussion and bring your best place to work ideas!
Based on recent research, the difference between those who reach their full potential in the workplace and in life, and those who do not, is their degree of emotional intelligence (EI), or “people skills”.
These people skills (your EI) encompass:
- An awareness of your own emotions,
- An awareness of emotions in others,
- An understanding of these emotions,
- And the ability to manage your own emotions and the emotions of others.
However, according to recent research, 75% of the reasons careers get derailed are EI-related:
- Unsatisfactory leadership across all levels during challenging times.
- Inability to handle interpersonal issues.
- Inability to adapt to change.
- Inability to elicit trust.
Without question, successful leaders to individual contributors must possess business acumen along with industry knowledge and organizational insight. But the quality that separates the most successful leaders from their peers is emotional intelligence—the ability to understand, manage and respond effectively to one’s own emotions and the emotions of others.
In fact, research has confirmed that emotionally intelligent employees and leaders are indeed more successful than their less emotionally intelligent peers. So are their companies.
At PepsiCo, for example, executives identified as emotionally intelligent generated 10% more productivity and added nearly $4 million in economic value; for Sheraton, an emotional intelligence initiative helped increase the company’s market share by 24%.
Please join us to share your questions and commentary about assessing and developing Emotional Intelligence.
