The Business Case For Emotional Intelligence
The Business Case For Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is not ‘new’ – academics have been studying this subject for the greater part of the twentieth century. In recent times - perhaps since the mid 1990’s - it has become a popular topic as organisations began to appreciate the positive impact that it can have performance and productivity. Did you know for example that: EI is a better predicator of individual success than other relevant previous experience or high IQ 70% of customers are lost for emotional intelligence related reasons (e.g. they didn't like the human side of doing business with the provider of the product / service) Individuals high in EI are more profitable and productive than their counterparts? Further benefits are highlighted in the diagram above. What is emotional intelligence? Emotional Intelligence is how somebody manages their personality to be both personally and interpersonally effective. It is reflected by what a person does in the present moment and therefore is described as a verb; it is about being emotionally intelligent. Emotional intelligence is about: Our attitudes Our emotional awareness (this applies to one’s own feelings and those of others) Our ability to self-manage Our relationships (with ourselves and with others) Emotional intelligence in the workplace An organisational climate – ‘the way it feels to be in an organisation’ - is related to the leadership and management style of the leader(s). With a direct link to the leader’s emotional intelligence, an organisational climate significantly influences individual engagement, performance and well-being. Organisations with emotionally intelligent climates are more likely to have increased levels of employee morale and enthusiasm leading to increased levels of performance. But it is not just the leader’s / manager’s emotional intelligence that matters. There is clear evidence that Emotionally Intelligent teams are more likely to be: Open and attentive towards one another leading to strong and effective collaborative relationships and; United by a shared confidence, more motivated and engaged in whatever it is doing thus helping the team to perform well and achieve what it sets out to do. Leadership and EI Leaders are central to ongoing success, competitiveness and resilience of the organisation. Research has found that the primary causes of derailment in executives involve deficits in emotional intelligence. The three primary ones are difficulty in handling change, not being able to work well in a team, and poor interpersonal relations. Furthermore, recent polls 75% of employees consider their direct manager to be the “worst part of their job" and bad management is cited as the number one reason for leaving a job. The bottom line With its ability to create resilient, collaborative, motivated, empathetic, engaged and effective individuals and teams and to increase performance and productivity it is easy to understand why many organisations are looking to become more emotionally intelligent.

Ten interesting facts you may not know about Spalding, Lincolnshire
Ten interesting facts you may not know about Spalding, Lincolnshire
Spalding, Lincolnshire, Home of PSP Training Services We’re proud of our South Lincolnshire heritage. The flat land may not be everyone’s idea of beauty but we have amazing big skies with beautiful sunsets and we can certainly see a storm coming in plenty of time to get inside! It’s also ideal for walking and cycling without the effort of climbing hills.However, the area is predominantly rural and suffers from a lack of training facilities, particularly management and senior leadership training. Local businesses need to balance the inconvenience and cost of sending staff to larger cities for executive training with the benefits that the training will bring the business.This is why we set up PSP Training Services. We’re bringing the quality and luxury of city executive training right here, to your doorstep, in Spalding.As a Spalding-based business, situated just off the A16 in Spalding Office Park, with an interest and passion for our local area, we thought you might be interested in learning more about what many people think are just boring, flat fens. Here’s a list of the 10 most interesting, little-known things we could find out about Spalding. And it was fascinating research! 10 interesting facts you may not know about Spalding 1. Spalding was host to the country’s first true rock festival, Barbeque 67, in 1967 before Reading, Leeds or the Isle of Wight events. It was held in the Bulb Auction and headlined by Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Eric Clapton and Pink Floyd.2. Spalding War Memorial, located in the grounds of Ayscoughfee Hall, was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, who also designed the Cenotaph on Whitehall in London. It commemorates the 224 men from the town killed in the First World War.3. The name “Spalding” originates from the Anglian tribe the “Spaldingas” who settled here in the 6th century. It is thought that the name Spalding of Saxon derivation means “the tribe who live at the shoulder of marsh land”.4. Pinchbeck's Key Market store (where Morrisons now stands) was selected to host the historic moment when the country's first barcode - on a packet of Melrose teabags - was scanned back in October 1979. The technological advance featured on an episode of the science program Tomorrow's World.5. The White Hart Inn, in Spalding market place, was built in 1377 and Mary, Queen of Scots is believed to have stayed here in 1566.6. A large drain, known as the Westlode, once ran along the line of Westlode Street, New Road and Winsover Road. There is thought to have been a bridge over this drain somewhere near Red Lion Street. The Westlode is thought to have been one of the main lines of transport and communication with Bourne.7. Spalding had a castle! The nephew of William the Conqueror, Ivo Tailebois, built a wooden castle with a moat and drawbridge, in Spalding, according to a charter dated A.D.868. It was located in the Castle playing fields on Pinchbeck Road.8. The only road to and from Spalding in 1763 was called Horsegate Roft, shown on a map as the present line of the A16. All other transport was via water.9. Windsover was once a small hamlet before houses built from 1801 merged the hamlet into the town of Spalding.10. The Raceground, west of Little London, really was an area used for horse racing in the 18th century. There were stables for the races on the site of the old cinema on London Road, now Georgian Court, at the intersection of London Road and Haverfield Road. We haven’t listed any sources for this information but it is freely available on the internet and, as far as we can see, it’s all accurate. If anyone knows any other interesting Spalding facts, we’d be very interested to hear them. Photo taken by Stephen McKay
