Ep #52: Why Emotional Intelligence is Non-Negotiable for Executive Leaders with Leila Bulling Towne

This episode is very special to me.

You’ll hear me talk to my dear friend and mentor, Leila Bulling Towne, on why increasing your emotional intelligence is one of the most effective ways to scale yourself and your career to the top.

Leila is THE expert on emotional intelligence. She’s been coaching leaders from startup founders to Fortune 500 leaders for more than 20 years, AND in 2018 she was named one of the top coaches for startup founders by The Information. 

Leila has been featured in the Economist.com, Fast Company, NBCNews.com, BBC.com, Wall Street Journal, Marketplace Radio, Glassdoor, CareerBuilder, Ladders.com, HR Magazine, Forbes, The Rotarian, SHRM.org, and others.

In this episode, we dig into why emotional intelligence is such a critical tool for leaders – not only because it will help you be successful at the senior executive level, but also because it’ll give you the skills you need to manage and leverage your own emotions as you rise through the ranks.

What You'll Learn:

  • What emotional intelligence actually is
  • Why emotional intelligence becomes non-negotiable as you rise through the leadership ranks
  • The connection between emotional intelligence and influence
  • How poor emotional management can make it difficult for the leadership team to see the true value of your skills
  • How better emotional intelligence can help you be more courageous at work
