243. Liz Cruz – Emotional Intelligence is Critical for Leadership
Connie’s motivational quote for today is by – Marshall B. Rosenberg
“We are dangerous when we are not conscious of our responsibility for how we behave, think, and feel.”
Check Out These Highlights:
I love this quote as it allowed me the opportunity to reflect on my career and look at my personal evolution of becoming more emotional intelligence and the impact it has had y my life and career. I have come to realize that this was a skill I had to learn and develop over time and was not necessarily natural for me.
So, what were some of the big lessons I learned?
Things like, how to become more empathetic by connecting deeply with my clients, then deeply with my sales teams, deeply with my husband and kids, and now deeply with my clients. As I look back, I personally understand the importance and beauty of being an Emotional Intelligent leader in our world. We have multiple roles in life and Emotional Intelligent (EI) helps with everything we do and with every person we engage with.
What’s the impact?
Great and deeper connections with everyone in my life both personally and professionally. Those relationships matter and for me are the cornerstone of my business and how I engage with my clients!
