In business, relationship conflicts are a primary driver of inefficiency.
And how people feel at work – stressed, threatened, valued, engaged – and their ability to self-regulate their emotions profoundly influence how they perform.
Social and emotional intelligence is the key to diminishing disruptions from conflicts and emotional reactions.
Social and emotional intelligence can be learned and has been proven both scientifically and practically to:
- reduce turnover
- increase productivity
- resolve problems creatively
- create a more cooperative work environment
For example, cosmetics giant L’Oréal began factoring emotional intelligence in their hiring process for salespeople. Those who were recruited for their high EQ outsold their peers by over $90,000 annually. The high-EQ employees also had 63 percent less turnover than salespeople selected through traditional methods.
The Connection Practice builds social and emotional intelligence through a scientifically based skill set. It is offered to businesses and nonprofits in courses customized to their needs.
