The Importance of Emotional Intelligence in the Agile and Corporate World

Learn more about transforming people, process and culture with the Real Agility Program

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is a topic that has not been fully addressed on this site, nor in the agile or corporate world, yet it has great ramifications for anyone choosing or hoping to practice Agile and/ or Scrum.

I obliquely touch on it in my article: The Soft Skills Revolution: Why You May Want Team Development and I think I can safely equate most “soft skills” with “emotional intelligence.”

My purpose is not to connect the dots for anyone, but simply to introduce the idea. If you go to the site below and read the materials and watch the videos, you may understand for yourself the importance of emotional intelligence in all that you are endeavouring to do. Thanks to John Hawthorne for pointing this out to me – enjoy.

  1. Hi, Valerie. Because your readers are clearly interested in all things agile, I thought you might be willing to share with them the news about The 2017 Agile Leadership Summit in Washington, DC on September 22, 2017. This event is for senior leadership, and features an all-lightning-talk format in which seven senior agile leaders will share agile strategies, lessons and learnings with their peers. We certainly welcome you — and your readers — to the event. Will you help us get the word out? http://www.agileCxO.org.
