Topic: Team Building with Emotional Intelligence: Key Behaviors to Success
Communication, collaboration and emotional management play key roles in the success of effective teamwork in organizational settings. At the team level there are seven emotional and social skill strengths that have been identified as essential building blocks of team performance. When these emotional and social intelligence skills are recognized and managed at the team level, organizations are better prepared to leverage group interaction and gain sustainable productivity around tasks. Teams who show a higher than average emotional intelligence (EI) level not only function at a higher level when compared to lower EI groups, but also benefit in their ability to handle organizational change and make decisions. Core EI skills for teams, a model of collaborative team development, as well as benefits for greater team success will be discussed.
