As we have emerged from lockdown, our individual experiences are brought together through the work that we do. Each of us has experienced our own ‘coronavirus rollercoaster’. Anxieties and emotions are fraught, with managers managing employees with furlough guilt, and lockdown burnout.
‘Social Intelligence and the Biology of Leadership’ (HBR, 2008) posited research that identified a huge difference between emotionally intelligent and unintelligent leaders. Daniel Goleman’s theory that emotional intelligence is more an indicator of management success than intelligence and expertise still rings true. It takes an emotionally competent manager to be able to communicate with their team with compassion and empathy.
