HR Bite - Emotional Intelligence


#HR #SHRM #ASTD #Tchat

EQ-Emotional Competence Real-Time!
40% of newly hired or promoted managers and executives fail within 18 months of starting new jobs, according to research by Manchester, Inc, a leadership development firm. And the primary reasons for failing are "failure to establish a cultural fit" and "failure to build teamwork with staff and peers". Both reasons are squarely related to EQ.

It is now widely accepted that individuals with well-developed emotional intelligence (EQ) far outperform others in the workplace. The performance gap is dramatic and it widens as jobs increase in complexity and interdependence. So hiring and promoting individuals with well-developed EQ may be a wise investment for reducing the 40% failure rate and increasing the probability of hiring peak performers.
