Why improving emotional IQs makes for better IT leaders

Rich Hein | Feb. 23, 2015
Hiring and retaining talent is becoming a priority as CIOs struggle to find and retain top talent. Raising the emotional IQ of your IT leaders is one big step towards creating a culture where people want to work.

Emotional IQ Training for Your Managers?
Many large leadership training organizations, such as Gartner, for example, offer some type of emotional intelligence training materials or courses. Coursera also offers some free training on inspiring leadership through emotional intelligence. There are also many leadership consultants who conduct this type of emotional intelligence testing for senior leaders. For example, Lynn's organization alone offers instructional courses like a 360- or self-assessment, training in both an elearning and/or classroom setting, personal coaching, and incorporating emotional IQ into the hiring process via their "EQ Interview Process."

Final Thought
