REAL Leaders need to have inner strength, confidence, emotional intelligence, and resilience. Given the past year of COVID lock-down and this year of re-integrating the future of work and back-to-the-office, it is evident that rapid, disruptive change is today’s normal.
Change comes in drips, or waves, or hurricanes. One thing we know for certain, change is continual and constant. To cope, leaders must have inner strength, emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Additionally, leaders need to be agile and resilient.
Today’s leaders need to be emotionally intelligent people with the ability to absorb complex change and help others move forward to achieve success. Studies show that leaders’ best decisions are grounded in business and emotional intelligence. Given the social upheaval authenticity, vulnerability, and empathy are critical to success. Leaders need to build a sense of equality, inclusion and belonging.

Leaders need to “rediscover the roots of good management; reacquaint themselves with the source of human motivation needed to get good work done well; manage cost in a sane fashion and digress from the blind, vigilant focus on short term results.” (The Resilient Leader: Why EQ Matters. Ivey Business Journal. 2008.
