18 Habits of Emotionally Intelligent Leaders - Habit #11 - Reverential

Over 18 weeks, we are excited to introduce 18 habits that separate emotionally intelligent leaders from the rest. These habits fill the gap between mediocre, good, and great leaders.


No one of us succeeds alone. The hectic pace of today’s work life can lull us into a false sense of security by fostering a “heads down, get it done approach.”

  1. Do you go to work every day and try to fly under the radar?
  2. How much do you understand the roles, frustrations, and strengths of your team members?
  3. Do you rarely engage or interact with others in a social fashion (coffee, lunch, etc.)?

The workplace is a mini ecosystem composed of both organizational and function but also social structures.

  • Who are the key players?
  • Who are the informal influencers?
  • Who are the non-titled leaders?

At one time in my career, I believed, “I’m doing my job, and that should be enough.”

Thankfully, I’ve grown and evolved my understanding of the unwritten rules of organizational success.

We are able to achieve positive outcomes when we respect and intentionally raise our awareness and understanding of the formal, informal, social, and organizational structures contributing to the current workplace dynamics.

Are you making an attempt to tap into the informal undercurrent in your company?
