"The #1 mistake managers and leaders make is not being emotionally intelligent. We have for so long rewarded thinking intelligences -- hard skills. But leadership and management are about people, and people are emotional beings. The more managers and leaders learn how to be more self aware and relate to people with empathy, active listening and the right amount of support and challenge, the better they will be at getting the best out of people." - Jeff Risley
