Statistics from Harvard, Stanford, and Carnegie Foundation show that 85–87% of our success accounts from soft skills, emotional intelligence, and personal skills, yet we only pay attention to them 10% of the time.
Extensive research has found that the primary causes of derailment in executives involve deficits in emotional competence. EQ is much more powerful than IQ in determining who emerges as a leader – IQ is a threshold competence; EQ determines who is a star performer.
Talent Edge Group offers programs specifically designed to improve EQ through personal awareness and actionable insights, leaders gain understanding of how to work well with a variety of people, and to respond effectively to the rapidly changing conditions in the business world. Our programs can include six to twelve month executive coaching engagements for leaders and half to full day training classes for leadership teams.
