LEVERAGING EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE FOR A PEOPLE-CENTRIC WORKPLACE
Hi, I am Tieko, an educator, Corporate Trainer and Emotional Intelligence Practitioner partnering with organizations to (re)set the company culture by rallying the behaviors that extend beyond technical skills; employee engagement, productive communication, addressing implicit biasses, unboxing creativity and adapting to change. Success-promoting behaviors, including emotional and social skills have been scored as soft, but I'm convinced it's the "soft skills" that make the best people and best outcomes. Together we intentionally and unapologetically invest in better people.
Hi, I am Tieko, an Educator, Corporate Trainer and Emotional Intelligence Practitioner partnering with organizations to (re)set the company culture. In the last decade of working closely with brands, I realize the hurdles we need to jump are rarely mounted because of technical skills. And that is because organizations usually put power, hours, and dollars into recruiting talent for their teams. The problem most teams face –and magnified in 2020– is encouraging the behaviors of people and their desire to work beyond talent in the most crucial areas of success like employee engagement, productive communication, addressing implicit biases, unboxing creativity, and adapting to change. Success-promoting behaviors, including emotional and social skills, have been scored as soft, but I'm convinced it's the "soft skills" that make the best people and best outcomes. Leaders are at the mercy of what they prioritize as worthy investments. Together we intentionally and unapologetically invest in people.
92% of employers feel their organization is empathetic but less than half of their employees agree.

Emotional Intelligence, referred to as EQ (Emotional Quotient) is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, engage socially, and navigate challenges.
EQ is not a basis for being “emotional” but rather our ability to effectively identify and manage our emotions and the emotions of others as a means to favorable outcomes.
Talents, skills, strategies, and operations matter but the thing that influences our behaviors and fuels our actions also matter. That “thing”? Emotions, which are instinctual to all of us. We are hard-wired to attach emotional meaning to everything we do, our thoughts, beliefs and behaviors.
We have to get deliberate about shifting the environment from a results-driven culture to a people-driven culture if we want to encourage better thinkers, broader beliefs, new behaviors, and ultimately consistent result.
However smart, talented, savvy, or creative, team members are expected to serve one vision. We forfeit opportunities of true “teamwork” and risk pushing micro visions when the focus is the development of processes and not the development of the process-pushers; the people.
Optimum teamwork is a result of every member being emotionally capable of self-regulating, communicating, interacting socially, and managing challenges. EQ is a measurable indicator of this potential.
