Personal Effectiveness

Introduction

Personal effectiveness has long been a strand of leadership development; but, it has never been more crucial than in today's complex environments that are so often characterised by the presence of multiple stakeholders. There are always so many who need to be consulted, have a voice, with the result that the ability to listen and engage is key to success. These realities have increased recognition of the Emotional Intelligence dimension to leadership effectiveness (and its measure - EQ or Emotional Quotient); they have resulted in a focus on the importance of qualities such as self-esteem, relational intelligence, stress management, impulse control, resilience and positive attitude. IQ or cognitive intelligence may get you in the door but it is EQ that takes you to the top - effectively that is! Emotionally intelligent leaders have the capacity to influence without manipulation or authority. They demonstrate spirit and courage, encourage trust, follow their intuition, but at the same time, are deeply self-aware, reflective, generous about the contribution of others, and yes, modest. In short, they have a high degree of personal effectiveness by making use of emotional energy, demonstrating emotional honesty, having a sense of purpose and conveying personal commitment and integrity.
