It depends on how often you use your independence EQ Leadership skills… Before we dive in, lets refresh our memory on what flexing these skills may look like: free from emotional dependence; directive; decisive; accountable; self-determined.

To learn more about your own independence, 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 independence skills, then be cautious not to neglect the emotions and opinions of your colleagues. Keep a close eye on how often you go off in your own direction, rather than building coalitions.

Tip, generally speaking: if you don’t use your independence skills that often, then stop the negative self-talk. The next time you find yourself making excuses for why you shouldn't act/decide on your own, write down arguments against each of your self-talk excuses.
