18 Habits of Emotionally Intelligent Leaders

Here’s an unvarnished truth: unmanaged conflict can eat away at your culture, driving talent to look elsewhere!

We’ve reached the penultimate habit in our series of “18 Habits of Emotionally Intelligent Leaders,” and it’s a game-changer: OPTIMISTIC BALANCE! 🤝

This habit is all about excelling at finding or even creating common ground.

It’s about being the beacon of positivity and the bridge-builder, especially in times of conflict.

We own the choice of disagreeing without being disagreeable. 🌈✨

Workplace conflict is not all bad. There is a positive outcome that can result from friction but only when it is effectively managed.

Here are a couple of areas emotionally intelligent leaders and companies excel at when it comes to using conflict to facilitate positive change.

🌟 Mediate and Positively Navigate Conflict: Emotionally intelligent leaders don’t shy away from conflict; they embrace it as an opportunity for growth. They step in as mediators, guiding teams towards resolutions that benefit everyone involved. 🤝✅

🌟 Create Common Ground: Instead of focusing on differences, leaders who embody Optimistic Balance look for shared goals and values. They create a common ground that unites team members, fostering collaboration and unity. 🌐🤗

In a world filled with divisiveness, being an Optimistic Balancer is a superpower! 🦸‍♂️🦸‍♀️

Unmanaged conflict drives top talent away, decreases productivity and damages inclusion – all of which are necessary for a healthy bottom line!
