Increasingly, companies see innovation and collaboration as a key source of competitive advantage, with benefits for motivation and engagement and developing talent, as well as team and organizational performance. However, achieving these benefits places new demands on leaders, and requires new leadership practices.
We live in a world where there are many talented individuals who are highly educated and have potential to achieve great things, yet many are demotivated, disengaged and are working below their potential. Yet, research shows us that individuals who are emotionally intelligent & who can build strong relationships and human networks, advance faster, earn more money & are more motivated and engaged in their work & personal lives than those who try to do it by working alone.
