What do all these leaders have in common? They aren’t emotionally intelligent. They are sending “nasty-grams” to their teams and causing emotional disengagement and shutdown in others. They have low EQ. And EQ = money. According to Drs. Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves “ The link between EQ and earnings is so direct that every point increase in EQ equals $1,300 to an annual salary. If that’s not enough, EQ accounts for 58% of performance in all types of jobs." All. Wow.
