why do you need to Create Emotionially Intelligent Leaders?

Leaders are not just Managers or Supervisors. Leaders are individuals who have the ability to impact and influence those around them.

Even more, an emotionally intelligent leader will have the ability to properly gauge and calibrate those around them so that they can use the most effective strategy to achieve the desired outcome. 

A good leader is an influencer and has the ear of those around them. They also have ideas and are inspirational, they will listen to all, weigh up the best options and then move forward, bringing the entire team with them.

You next leader needs to be all of those things if they are going to be an effective addition to your team and someone you can rely upon to drive your team forward.

Richard Branson talks about the importance of selecting the right leaders

How to identify your next leader?

Your next leader is probably already within your team. Very often the next golden nugget is right under our noses, they are just covered in the dust and debris of life. When you identify them, wash them off and shine them up, they will be the most valuable find you have ever had.

But how do we find and identify these nuggets?

Here are some things to look out for:

  • They are keen to learn, have a thirst for knowledge. 

  • They will adopt and adapt to change quickly.

  • They will also encourage change through challenging others and then encouraging others by setting an example and infulencing them.

  • They are the ideas person. The one who will look at tasks, jobs, strategies and suggest new perspectives and ways forward.

  • Always there, turns up everytime without any excuses. Consistent and reliable.

  • When they are sick, they have to be told to go home, because they will not go of their own accord, they believe they are fine to carry on.

These are the people who you can invest in. These are the people who will give you your best Return of Investment ever.

Your team is your greatest asset and when other team members see an individual who they like and trust, being recognised for their consistant effort and dedication, this will in turn inspire them even more. 

what next? what do I do now i have identified an ideal person?

So you have identified a possible candidate, but how do you actually train them?

  1. You could use your own experience, insights and knowledge about leadership and spend a few years training them, inbetween running the rest of the team, your business, growing the business etc.

  2. You could purchase an online, generic, training package and have your ideal person sit in front of a screen and watch videos and answer multiple choice questions and hope that the training gives them the tools in their toolbox.

  3. You could engage a professional development trainer and facilitator who has over 18 years of leadership training and has trained 1000's of individuals in the military. Someone who has a proven track record and even more has an extremely in depth knowledge of human behaviour and has the skill to be able to train the person you have identified and meet your needs. 

As with everything in life, the choice is yours. 

However if you opt for option 3, this is what you can expect.
