Emotional Intelligence in Leadership

by in Leadership, The Mind February 27, 2022

The success of a business often depends on how well employees can co-operate across projects and everyday tasks.

Develops problem-solving skills

Team-building activities bring team members together to solve problems. Because team-building exercises are generally simulated, participants feel less pressure. They can then solve the task with more ease, gaining confidence in their capabilities. The problem-solving skills they form are ones they can make use of in real-world situations.

Cultivates interpersonal skills

Team members can sometimes lack the interpersonal skills needed to interact and handle constructive feedback. This leads to conflict in the workplace and destroys the ‘safe space’ required for ideas, creativity and open-minded conversations. Team-building activities that focus on emotional intelligence and awareness can help cultivate these much-needed interpersonal skills.

Grows skills and expertise

Even the most talented and experienced employees need to continue to develop their skills. The problem is that learning often falls to the bottom of the priority list. But you can design team-building events to focus on growing the skills and expertise of your team members. For example, a fun group brain-storming exercise can help generate ideas for solving a team or individual challenge.

Increases productivity

Team productivity depends a lot on the relationships among team members. The collaborative nature of a team building challenge teaches people how to work together more effectively. It allows staff to see and appreciate that everyone has different skills and approaches to problem solving. This knowledge is transferable to the office environment, where staff will have a deeper appreciation of how they each fit into the scheme of things.
