EP29: Emotionally Intelligent Leadership: Building Stronger Relationships, Inspiring Success

View descriptionShare

In order to be great school leaders, we must possess a mix of skills, both academic and personal. But one of the most essential skills any effective leader should have is emotional intelligence. 

As leaders, one of our primary responsibilities is to manage people. Without an awareness of our inner world and that of others and the ability to self-regulate and respond to others with empathy,  it can be challenging to establish relationships built on trust and respect. 

As you’ll discover by tuning into this episode, emotional intelligence comprises a subset of six skills, each of which is an essential aspect of becoming a “people person” and a leader that staff are inspired to follow. 


In this episode, we cover:

  • What emotional intelligence is
  • Why leaders need to develop theirs
  • The key skills that make up emotional intelligence 
  • Practical strategies to help you improve on each of these essential skills.
