Join Britt Andreatta for an in-depth discussion in this video Building influence, part of Leading with Emotional Intelligence (2013).
Another component of emotional intelligence is…creating positive relationships and forming strategic partnerships.…This is all part of building influence.…Ultimately, the goal is to be a relationship…builder who can synthesize connections, and maximize collaborative environments.…There are several ways to do this. First, start with building your networks.…You're connected to lots of people, both inside and outside your organization.…Start by tapping into all the groups you're already…apart of, like your colleagues, coworkers, neighbors, family, and friends.…
Even consider the businesses you frequent,…like your gym, favorite restaurant, and dentist.…Luckily, with social media, it's now much easier to connect with people.…Utilize platforms like Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter to build your networks.…There's great courses on these topics in the lynda.com library.…You can also join professional…associations, attend meetings and conferences, subscribe…to blogs, and volunteer with related organizations.…But pace yourself.…
Learn what emotional intelligence is and how it factors in at work and discover concrete techniques for raising your own emotional quotient (EQ). This includes perceiving yourself accurately, exercising emotional self-control, practicing resilience, and developing empathy. Then turn those lessons around to build your awareness of others and learn to inspire helpful communication and manage conflict.
