“One of the criticisms I’ve faced over the years is that I’m not aggressive enough or assertive enough or maybe somehow, because I’m empathetic, it means I’m weak. I totally rebel against that. I refuse to believe that you cannot be both compassionate and strong.”- Jacinda Ardern (Prime Minister of New Zealand)
Women are often criticized to be emotional way more than analytical or practical in their approach. Only if we knew that our weakness, that is, emotions can be used for our advantage through self-realisation. Being able to understand one’s own emotions, situational based reactions (positive or negative), and learning how to manage it all sums up to use EQ effectively in walking the path of leadership. There have been multiple pieces of research conducted over the years and most of them resulted that women score higher than men in emotional quotient. Those women well versed with the potential of this trait use it quite often in fulfilling their goals.
A lot of times we make decisions, even some life-changing, based on our emotions. Hence, it is pertinent to build upon it as we go along with the journey of our lives. Here are some of the EQ traits that you can leverage to becomes a successful leader:
𝐄𝐦𝐩𝐚𝐭𝐡𝐲: Henry Ford once said that if there is any great secret of success in life, it lies in the ability to put oneself in another person’s place and to see things from his or her point of view –as well as from one’s own. Women are naturally empathetic and connect with people in their emotional and intellectual state. I know a woman leader of a mid-sized company and managing a team of 20 highly motivated and efficient workforce. What makes them effective and accountable towards their work is not perks but the woman leader connecting with them and empathising in every sensitive situation, whether professional or personal.
𝐁𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐝 𝐝𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐦𝐚𝐤𝐞𝐫𝐬: Women are known to be the decision makers and economic managers at home. Their intuitive skills help them differentiate between needs and desires to strike the right balance. This is a must to build businesses with keeping budgets in control. Their money management trait which is out of the experience and not an education degree comes in handy in taking conscious budget decisions thus accentuating their leadership role in money matters as well.
𝐀𝐝𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲: To thrive in a rapidly evolving world, businesses need to keep up to exist and succeed. We never expected the Covid-19 pandemic to hit and shatter the world so badly. But those who were highly adaptable managed to survive, stay afloat, or even converted this challenge into an opportunity. Similarly, women go through various changes throughout her life as compared to men and often come out successfully. If used this ability to adapt to the changing situations to meet professional commitments excellently, they can build empires growing in length and breadth.
These are some attributes that women are naturally blessed and are also considered vital traits of emotionally intelligent people. If focused and worked upon perfecting their EQ skills, in no time, we will see women increasingly contributing to the economic growth of our country and become trendsetters by leading the businesses with innovation and high competitiveness.
