Tips to Improve Your Emotional Intelligence

Article submitted by Herb Kimble

One of the most valued skills in business leadership is emotional intelligence. Every leader can improve his or her emotional intelligence factor with some simple exercises. Do you understand the value of your emotional aura? Are you helping to spread positivity in your workplace and fostering the talent of your employees?

Here is some advice to help you hone and improve your emotional intelligence so you can be the best possible leader you can be.

Take an Honest Look at Yourself

Honesty is tough when you’re reflecting on yourself because it means acknowledging your weaknesses and your failures. That’s an easy pit to fall into and get stuck inside. Instead, look to input from others when you’re feeling down. Highlight your strengths as counterbalances to your weaknesses. Understanding where you are weak means you can apply your full effort to success in other areas better suited to your talents.

Keep a Diary

Even one line a day about your life, your feelings, and how things are going in a general sense can help to track your thoughts and improve your state of mind. You can track conflict resolution, documenting how you dealt with challenges and reviewing your approach to see how you can improve. Make sure to re-read your diary and review your own personal growth.

Understand Your Own Motivations

What motivates you will drive you to success. When you find out how to harness that power, you’re already seven steps ahead of your competition and your peers. Investing in learning what motivates you is one of the best investments you can make in yourself.
