Emotionally Intelligent Leadership

Why does emotional intelligence matter? More than 30 years of research shows that close to 90% of leaders' success in leadership was attributable to emotional intelligence.  Emotional competencies were found to be twice as important in contributing to excellence as pure intellect and expertise.  In the complex world of 21st century business, new challenges demand emotionally intelligent leadership with new capabilities: resilience, initiative, optimism, adaptability, humility and empathy – the so-called “soft” skills.

Emotional intelligence in leadership can be enhanced through training. AHA’s research-based training supports your efforts to develop emotionally intelligent leaders and helps you achieve important benefits:
