Do you believe doing a good deed will have positive ripple effects?

Let’s think about it…
I do believe that doing a good deed will have positive ripple effects! This thought process illustrates what Social Responsibility (within the Interpersonal behavior measured in the EQ-i 2.0 tool) entails. The EQ Edge book simply defines this leadership skill as “the desire and ability to willingly contribute to society, your social group, and generally to the welfare of others.”
Someone who uses this skill a lot may have characteristics such as: being cooperative; giving and contributing to the group; being responsible and dependable; concern for the greater good/team/community. On the other hand, if you don’t use this skill often it may look like: being unwilling to be involved in a group or team; having difficulties following through on group tasks; being cut off from social groups/issues.
In the Leadership EQ-i 2.0 assessment process, social responsibility calls for leaders to act in a moral and responsible manner, promote the greater good, and be a strong voice in their teams, organizations, and communities. In the workplace, successful leaders find the right balance of fulfilling their own responsibilities and investing in the growth of their people. Real workplace success comes from helping your team members reach their potential!
