Daniel Goleman defines 4 crucial competencies of emotional intelligence that are key to high performance: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management. Guess what capacity is essential to all? Mindfulness: the ability to notice what is, without judgment (in its simplest definition).
When I’m coaching leaders to help them grow their skills and confidence, I walk them through an EQ assessment and I help them develop their capacity to be mindful in service of enhancing their emotional intelligence overall – it’s a one-two punch that strengthens their leadership presence and impact both personally and professionally.
