What Does it Take to be a Leader in the Public Sector? | Q2 2015 Public Sector Risk Briefing

emotional intelligence and leaders

Have you ever wondered why the smartest employees are not always the best leaders? Research has found that successful leaders have what is called high emotional intelligence, which is quite different than IQ. Emotional intelligence is the ability to perceive, control and evaluate our own emotions, as well as those of others.

More than ever, the public sector needs good leaders. Emotional intelligence is a trait that can be learned and strengthened, setting you apart from the pack and helping to propel you into leadership positions.

Ron Steinkamp, Partner and Public Sector Industry Group leaderThis briefing will be led by Ron Steinkamp, Partner, Advisory Services and Leader of Public Sector Services at Brown Smith Wallace. Ron has more than 20 years of experience leading public sector and private organizations.

Topics covered during the discussion include:

• What is emotional intelligence?
• Why is emotional intelligence important for successful leadership?
• How can I improve my emotional intelligence?
