A Must Have 2020 Skill

A Must Have 2020 Skill


The World Economic Forum has identified emotional intelligence as a Top-10 must have skill in 2020 and beyond. The role of leadership is to move beyond the status quo in order for growth, innovation and change to occur. The unwillingness to change leaves a company vulnerable to becoming irrelevant.

Authentic, emotionally intelligent leaders have the ability to stare into the abyss of failure on the way to better results. In order to lead you need a sense of urgency that fuels the determination to move forward even when it means disrupting the status quo.

We are living in a time when we must learn to become adaptable to change. As you plan your career be sure to keep the development of your emotional intelligence in the forefront of your activities.

Emotional intelligence is the ability to accurately perceive our emotions and stay aware of them as they happen. To use awareness of our emotions to positively direct our behavior. To pick up on emotions in others and understand what is really going on.

Connecting with our authenticity while developing our emotional intelligence enables us to embrace change while raising our consciousness. It is important to understand no one can obtain results beyond their level of consciousness. We need to see more in order to be more.
