What’s a tip on building your Flexibility EQ leadership skill?

Let’s think about it…

It depends on how often you use your flexibility EQ Leadership skills… Before we dive in, lets refresh our memory on what flexing these skills may look like: open to new ideas and change in behavior; may be bored with the status quo; able to adapt to changing situations; rolls with the punches.

To learn more about your own flexibility, you can take an EQ self-assessment or EQ 360 assessment. With this information, we would have a ton of information to customize a plan to develop your leadership skills.

Tip, generally speaking: if you frequently use your flexibility skills, then stay the course. Your ability to remain flexible is likely to come in handy. However, in team environments, it is very important to make sure your colleagues are aware of any changes that you are thinking about and embracing. Not all people deal well with regular change. Make an effort to document your changes and reasons for the change. This will go a long way to instilling trust and gaining buy-in from your colleagues.

Tip, generally speaking: if you don’t use your flexibility skills that often, then conduct an emotion analysis. If you find yourself resisting change, write down what emotions accompany your hesitation.

  • For each emotion, use your self-awareness to identify the reason you are feeling this way (e.g., your fear of change comes from the possibility of making mistakes).

  • Work through your list of emotions and their causes to find tangible evidence to support or invalidate your emotion. For example, if you are afraid to make a mistake, start gathering all the possible resources and expert advice to help keep your fear at bay when tackling this new challenge.
