As we continue our look at what makes an effective leader, today we dive deeper into the concept of emotional intelligence and how developing it can contribute to your success as a leader and in life. Being results driven as a leader is crucial, but the skills known as emotional intelligence are just as important to be aware of as you work to bring out the best in yourself, and each and every person that you lead. In today’s episode, we reveal how you can nurture and prioritize your mental health, as well as what it means to be an empathic leader, and we hope to provide you with the resources, tools (and lessons from our personal experiences!) to help you on your own leadership journey.
