Navigate Team Dynamics Using Emotional Intelligence
Play • 25 min

There was once a time when a leaders’ style was the blueprint for every interaction. Subordinates were expected to modify their own behavior in order to work successfully with that leader.

But in the 25 years since the publication of Daniel Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence, many businesses have recognized that a successful team dynamic necessitates first understanding one’s own motivations, behavior styles, and internal biases and then understanding the same for each other team member. Then modifying our behavior to achieve the teams’ goal with as little friction as possible.

Our guest this episode is Adrian Porter. Adrian is a Vice President at the Austin Alliance Group and will be discussing Navigating Team Dynamics using Emotional Intelligence at Fort Worth HR’s Strategic Mindset Conference on September 17th. 

During this thirty-minute episode, Mike and Adrian discuss emotional intelligence, measuring EQ, and adult’s core behaviors and whether they can be changed.
