Why should it be added to all training!
Companies have demonstrated that using EQ in training and organizational climate change can reduce costs associated with turnover, absenteeism, and low performance. Research has provided clear evidence that emotionally intelligent leaders are more successful.
Many of these studies yield bottom-line results:
At PepsiCo, for example, executives selected for EQ competencies generated 10% more productivity.
High EQ salespeople at L’Oreal brought in $2.5 million more in sales.
An EQ initiative at Sheraton helped increase market share by 24%.
The US Airforce is using EQ to screen pararescue jumpers to save $190 million.
One of the most important applications of EQ is in helping leaders foster a workplace climate conducive to high performance.
These workplaces yield significantly higher productivity, retention, and profitability, and emotional intelligence appears key to this competitive advantage.
No matter what training or trainers you bring into your company it must have a handle on your culture. This will allow the creation of a customized workshop the brings EQ into the fold.
