As part of a comprehensive Leadership Program with a leadership team, a subset of the program was customized for the Executive team including EQ 2.0TM self-assessment. The overall team results indicated they possessed lower EQ in Empathy and higher (EQ in) Optimism.
This result indicated that some leaders may unintentionally negatively impact their leaders due to their positive view coupled with their inability to easily understand others’ challenges.
A customized approach was developed to support the Executive team to effectively sponsor and demonstrate the leadership EQ skills with their direct reports.
