E is for Emotional Intelligence

EQ. EI. Whatever acronym you prefer, one thing I reckon we can probably agree on, is that having a high level of EI is absolutely crucial in order for someone to be a good leader. Quite frankly, if you don’t agree with that statement, I’m not quite sure what you are doing here reading a [...]

D is for Difficult Conversations

Picture this: Jason is a member of your team. He’s been with you for a few months now, and he’s a pretty good addition to the team. Ok, yeah, you’ve noticed a couple of times in team meetings that he says something that doesn’t always seem to land well with the rest of the team. [...]
