Lawyers have emotions and are intelligent. What more do they need to know about emotional intelligence? In many cases, a lot.
Emotions are extremely powerful. They drive our behavior, decisions, relationships, and self-image. The upside of harnessing such a powerful force is pretty self-evident, and developing your emotional intelligence is one of the best ways to do just that.
Lawyers who develop these skills will learn how to:
- Manage their stress;
- Set and achieve meaningful goals;
- Motivate and lead their teams; and
- Build better relationships with clients, colleagues, and loved ones.
