Tension hangs in the air. You can’t believe your colleague just said that--at all, let alone in a conference meeting. Most of the men and women sitting around the large wooden table are pretending to look through their notes, some check email on their phone. No one has said a word in what has been the longest minute you’ve ever endured. Maybe you should have been more understanding, given him another chance to speak up before you shut him down. But now you’re too shocked and angry to give him...
We all want to be seen and known. It helps us believe that we’re valued. Someone took the time to understand us, to learn more about how we are and what makes us tick. The reverse is also true. You show that you care about someone, even at the most basic level, when you know about more than just their hair color. The DiSC test is one of the most popular and effective personality assessments that helps individuals establish emotional intelligence, uncover their strengths, and learn how to recogn...

In today’s social media-driven world and instant updates, good news travels fast, but bad news travels faster. When your company is facing a crisis, eyes are watching; fingertips are ready to alert the Twitterverse of your fate. Will supporters be able to stand by your side and announce that you are expertly leading your team to calmer waters? Or will you falter, allowing the skeptics to pronounce that you’re sinking? The way you respond to the crisis at hand will not only determine you and yo...
Zzz. Zzz. Zzz. Your phone vibrates and you glance at the clock. The alarm hasn’t gone off yet, but emails are coming in and your calendar reminds you of today’s deadline and an afternoon meeting. Your mind begins to spin, creating a mental to-do list before your feet hit the floor. You throw on a t-shirt and decide to skip the shower. Duty calls. Ambling into the kitchen, you hardly notice dark coffee percolating on the counter. You sit down at the kitchen table and open your laptop. When you ...
In today’s fast-paced world, the race to be heard above the din of near-constant chatter and onslaught of non-stop information can be brutally tiresome. However, the late, great Stephen Covey said it best, “Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
In a recent Gallup Poll, a staggering 66% of employees are neither engaged nor inspired or worse, actively disengaged at work. Thankfully, the number of engaged and inspired workers is on the rise and sits at the all-time high of 34%, meaning for the 13% of actively disengaged workers in any given business, the fully engaged ones outnumber them almost 3 – 1. The remaining 53% are in the “not engaged” tier and are satisfied generally speaking but have no real connection to their work or workpl...
Emotional Intelligence, often referenced as EQ, is a key component to effective leadership in businesses and organizational growth. Emotional Intelligence is, in simplest terms, described as possessing the knowledge of what is being felt, what emotions mean, and how those emotions can impact others. But great leaders know that EQ is more than that because they understand how emotions drive behavior and apply that knowledge to motivate those around them.
