Does conflict get in the way of your team’s productivity?
Let’s borrow from the best! Today, we’re pulling back the veil on high-functioning teams.
These are teams that have high self-regulation, self-awareness, and the ability to display empathy and engage in effective communication.
What’s their secret?
They have a high Emotional Quotient (EQ)!
They recognize, manage, and act on their emotions (and those of their teammates) in a very effective way to:
- Create stronger bonds
- Rise to the challenge
- Achieve superior productivity
…All without giving in to negative team dynamics.
Now here’s a surprising reveal:
Most individuals on a team aren’t familiar with the core principles of Emotional Intelligence.
And this is in spite of the fact that most organizations agree on the ongoing value of EQ in the workplace and how that is a KEY accelerator to superior outcomes.
This is why it’s so crucial for teams to exist not just in name only – but to actually interact in a meaningful way. And why it’s so important for organizations to enforce a high EQ culture from the top down.
Having a high Team EQ is so important because this leads to collaboration. And collaboration is vital to production!
And here’s the best part: You can develop your team’s communication and collaboration skills in a very deliberate way.
How to Inspire Stronger Communication
Let’s look at a great quote to contextualize this:
“Emotions, feelings, and moods are high-quantity, high-quality mind and body data available to every team.”
That’s a beautiful description from the book, Peak Performance by Brad Stulberg.
Because here’s the truth: Moods – both positive and negative – travel through team members to impact the overall effectiveness of the group.
In my work as an EQ Team Trainer, I help teams leverage these key data points to truly understand what emotions are, the role they play in the group dynamic – and yes, even how far they IMPROVE team performance.
And the key to team performance is the ability to COMMUNICATE.
✨ Effective Communication creates Aligned Outcomes✨
This contributes to superior productivity. Team members are able to feel heard, listened to, and VALUED.
This is why it’s so important to have an insightful discussion about emotions, feelings, and moods in professional team settings.
And how you have these discussions can really influence how well your team is able to survive and excel in the workplace!
If your team is struggling with low productivity and disconnectedness, and you find that no one is really communicating with each other –
