Emotional intelligence (EQ) is intrinsically linked to high performance, meaning that building emotionally intelligent teams should be a priority for organisations.
Set Yourself Up For Success
Defined as the ability to understand and regulate one’s own emotions and the emotions of others, emotional intelligence is a set of essential skills that enable people to communicate and relate better with those around them. Social interaction, conflict management, clear communication, collaboration – all of these, crucial for teams, are influenced by emotional intelligence.
Luckily, like all skill sets, emotional intelligence can be taught and refined. If we embrace our human potential and learn these new skills, we will be able to develop our capacity for collaboration and effective workplace relationships.

What is emotional intelligence?
Investing in emotional management will have a positive impact both on individuals and your organisation as a whole. There are five key areas of soft skills that are covered by emotional intelligence, all of which are essential for the function and development of your team.
Self-awareness relates to how well a person can recognise their own emotions and how they impact their actions and the decisions they make. Team members are also able to recognise how their emotions influence the people around them. Being self-aware allows us to have clarity around our strengths and weaknesses and allows us to adjust our behaviour to the situation at hand.
It can be hard to be objective about our own emotions; for most of us, this does not come naturally. With regular self-reflection and training, however, you can develop a better understanding of your negative and positive emotions and how they affect workplace interactions.
Self-regulation is the ability to control one’s impulses through effective self-management. This helps us with rational decision making, allows us to keep an open mind and find flexible solutions when confronted with roadblocks – and, most importantly for teams, reduce interpersonal conflict.
Emotions can sometimes run high when working collaboratively, whether it comes to decision making or even just general gripes and disagreements. The ability to manage emotions and prevent them from impacting their work allows your employees to better separate their personal lives and professional lives and be aware of their feelings when working with others.
Those with high levels of emotional intelligence are intrinsically motivated, driven by their goals and need to see a job through. This is great for project management, leadership and results in higher quality work.
Motivated teams are able to approach their work with enthusiasm and creativity, are more resilient in the face of change and setbacks, support each other, and are focused on the process, not just the end result. They are inspired to accomplish their task, even in the face of hardship. Overall, they are able to perform at a higher standard and achieve success.
Empathy is a powerful skill that allows your team to better understand each other’s perspectives and respond accordingly. Facilitating an emotional connection between members helps with building trust, relationships, and a respectful workplace environment. This is key for relationship management and personal development, with members able to understand each other and their needs.
Social awareness is especially useful for working with teams. Those with this soft skill set can communicate more effectively with colleagues, influence others, and desculate conflict before it becomes a problem that impacts their work and relationships.
This is especially important for leadership, as this allows a leader to effectively manage people, give more helpful feedback, and develop the talents of their teams. Leaders with emotional intelligence are adept at training others and influencing both team members and key stakeholders.
