16 Jan 3 Reasons Why Emotional Intelligence Is Key In A Toxic Work Environment
This one is for my bad-ass boss babes! Navigate your way through a toxic work environment! using these 3 reasons why emotional intelligence is vital with you so that you can flourish and practice these with your own colleagues and teammates, especially in a toxic environment. This is truly how you manage your emotions when it matters most.
OK loves, pay close attention because these 3 tips can dramatically change the way you work and create overall balance in your life.
- Mastering your EQ helps with efficiency and focus. When you are emotionally aware and cognizant of the attitudes that you bring to your projects, to your team, and with your workload you are more likely to stay on point and not get distracted. By this I mean, being fully aware of how to handle difficult conversations, paying attention to your body when you need a break etc.
- Navigating the different personalities in the office. Understanding that everyone you encounter in the workplace has their own story behind them, so their reactions to you may not be personal but could be a coverup or aka a ‘projection’ of what they are really going through. Responding with empathy and compassion signals a highly emotionally aware person and creates a ‘safe space’ for others to let their guard down (that’s a great thing!).
- Checking in with yourself, and knowing your boundaries with your team members. This is huge. Many CEOs, executives, as well as employees, have a tough time with this. On the one hand, you add so much to your plate that you are running on empty, and not being able to say no – in order to focus on your best value add.
