What makes someone a great leader? Having knowledge, smarts, and vision, to be sure. But what really distinguishes the world’s most successful leaders is their level of emotional intelligence — or the ability to identify and monitor emotions both their own and others – especially when under pressure.
Emotional Intelligence is the ability to manage interactions to improve relationships, build trust, and teamwork culture. A leader must have the skills to handle barriers and interpersonal issues.
In a recent Gallop poll, it was revealed that 75% of employees had left a current job because of the poor leadership skills of their manager.

“This class was a great investment in me! It helped me analyze my thought process and improve my leadership skills.”
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the two sessions on emotional intelligence. I can’t think of a single person who wouldn’t benefit from emotional intelligence awareness. You are a wonderful presenter – thoughtful, professional and compassionate. Afterward, I had a conversation with one person who was sad the course was finished. Others really seemed… to enjoy it as well. Practice makes perfect, so I will continue to work on changing my response pathways and hopefully, it will become second nature. I am grateful Karim found you and continues to work with you. I can see clearly now why he is so excited. Read more “Nancy El-Hibri”

These valuable tools help us become a healthier, more cohesive team, enabling us to focus on achieving our organization’s mission. I highly recommend Robert and Black Diamond Leadership.

Thank you for your excellent presentation on Practicing Emotional Intelligence. I found your development tips tremendously helpful.
I teach Emotional Intelligence to students, unfortunately, EQ literature is often strong on good intentions rather than solid practical advice.
I can also relate to the fact that every day we face a choice to be empathic,… self-awareness and have the courage to change. I’d love to stay in touch so we can talk more about it. Read more “Diana Lenko, MBA”
