Though Psychological Safety sounds warm and cozy, it's really about making hard things possible... like intellectual friction, learning and connection.
Tons of studies report the single most important factor for success isn’t IQ, advanced degrees, or technical experience – it’s Emotional Intelligence – the ability to recognise, understand and manage emotions in ourselves and others.
Emotions are the bedrock of relationships. A solid understanding of our emotions and actions, and their impact on those around us, drives better choices that inspires others. And how others feel (whether it’s your team, associates, or family) affects their motivation, commitment, and how much of themselves they bring to the situation.
Good news? Emotional Intelligence is grow-able.
