Coaching Leader Quality 7 – Emotional Intelligence

Great coaching leaders develop strong emotional intelligence. They know that reading people, connecting, and maintaining healthy relationship energy is the key to trust, commitment, and high-level performance.

In his groundbreaking research, Daniel Goleman proves that emotional intelligence can be developed and learned. Specifically, two competencies are critical to the coaching leaders. Empathy is about being able to connect with others and understand their concerns and motivators. Nurturing relationships is being able to develop meaningful and emotionally rewarding relationships that endure over time. If you want to be a successful coaching leader, you will develop these two competencies along with the other three competencies: emotional self-regulation, emotional motivation, and emotional awareness.
