How would you know if your EQ could use a tune-up?

After a year of mostly zoom interactions, many of us are easing back into more face-to-face contact at work and in our personal lives.

As we make these transitions, leaders especially need to rely on their EQ (emotional intelligence) more than ever to overcome the challenges ahead, from pandemic fatigue to onboarding new team members into whatever the “new workplace normal” becomes.

Leaders are responsible for inspiring and motivating team members who may continue to work virtually where the frequency of in-person interactions is limited.

What about you? Are you feeling a bit out of practice with EQ skills like “Positive Outlook” or “Empathy” or “Teamwork?”

Have the challenges of one of the hardest years of our lives worn you down when it comes to your “people skills?” 

In this video, I share 7 signs that indicate your EQ could use some attention.
