At a Leadership summit in London earlier this year, chaired by Harvard Business Review editor Amy Bernstein, the significant benefits of developing Emotional Intelligence (EQ) in the work place were explored.
In this article from the CIPD, Sky CEO Jeremy Darroch gives an account of how his practice of ‘better self’ is the foundation for leadership and people development across his organisation. Other EQ techniques cited were daily and weekly ‘progress rituals’, bringing individuals together and improving performance.
At BLT we are always interested to explore how different Leadership techniques help businesses to achieve long term profitable growth. From our experiences working with a range of organisations across the globe, we advocate a combined approach to leadership development, incorporating a blend of training and leadership techniques.
