New Age Leadership

New Age Leadership

Not sure if you’ve noticed, but around the turn of the 1960s when radio and television began gaining popularity, people  could then record vicious behavior.

When the media would publish cruel activities, men of cruel power began to amend their ways to appear less gruesome than they were.

Instead of sicking a dog on the poor man, they’d just tell him to come to their office to talk, where they could ignore and string him along. This way he feels they’re trying to help.

At any-rate, I digress… the new age leader and his or her leadership will be lead by the genuine milk of human kindness in heart and by taking suggestions from their followers. Kindness is the new “brute forcefulness” of old.

You may asks: “How does a leader get anything done these days if she’s too kind? The workers will think she’s soft and run all over her kindness. Remember, kindness for weakness quote right...?”

Being kind and firm is not illegal.

Leaders must be firm, but the new age leader, if such person desires to be great, the use of force and cruelty must step aside (or be hidden from the publics eye). People are not following that anymore, they are following people who can lead and can lead with an attitude of grace!

Write down three vital leadership skills you’re looking to develop, leave them in the comments below!

Why Emotional Intelligence is Important

 

Need to Get Control of Yourself? There are FIVE elements that can help you do it everyday all the time. Most people have never looked at intelligence from an emotional standpoint. Author and psychologist, Daniel Goleman, has and has shown how it (emotional intelligence) can be even be more vital than educational intelligence.

Why Emotional Intelligence is Important

Emotional Intelligence Book Read Major Points:

Number 1, if the world worked on emotionally helping people, they would by default help the intellectual intelligence of everyone. So much research hinged on the emotional status of people, starting when they were as young as toddlers.

Number 2, emotionally unstable parents will utterly raise emotionally unstable children, and the cycle and drama continues.

A key ability in impulse control is knowing the difference between feelings and actions, and learning to make better emotional decisions by first controlling the impulse and then identifying alternative actions and her consequences before acting p259.

Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence Chart

There are five components of emotional intelligence:

According to Daniel Goleman, an American psychologist who helped to popularize EI, there are five main elements of emotional intelligence:

  1. Self-awareness.
  2. Self-regulation.
  3. Motivation.
  4. Empathy.
  5. Social skills.

The more that you, as a leader, manage each of these areas, the higher your emotional intelligence. It is vital for you to gain self-awareness, and the ability to regulate yourself. Emotional intelligence people are self motivated or know where to go to get motivation, and they have good or adequate social skills.

Perhaps the most important component they possess is a high level of empathy. This (empathy) is something Goleman emphasized throughout his book. We’ll be doing a part two video because we were long winded with this topic.
