It is in the best interest of individuals and organizations to create a culture where employees are engaged and productive. Values-driven organizations with dynamic leadership attract talent who in turn deliver great production and service. Success as a leader is directly related to emotional intelligence. By working intelligently, you’ll develop self-awareness needed to transform yourself and your organization.
We are social creatures who thrive when we are in relationship with one another. But leaders report that socials skills and social acumen are in decline. We need to increase our ability to be empathetic, to be curious about one another, to explore others’ stories, and to have respectful, but impactful difficult conversations.
We need time away from work to recreate, or quite literally re-create. Our lives need space to spend time laughing, exercising, taking in the arts, playing an instrument, walking in the woods, baking, playing a board game, travelling, exploring different cultures, and playing sports, just to name a few. Adults need some silliness. Allowing ourselves to play and have fun breaks us free from the mold and rigors of our worklife.
Life IQ is about living intelligently, or, in essence, living intentionally. It is about figuring out who you are, what kind of life you want to lead, and making the choices to achieve it.
