COACHING TIPS

This EQ activity is designed to help leaders identify specific ways to influence and inspire followers. It is essential for each follower to feel valued. The social expertness of leaders determines how well they can build bonds and influence followers. Leaders who have this EQ skill also know that this is a continual part of their leadership role.

This exercise is aimed at generating concrete ideas to bolster people's sense of importance related to the work they do. It is important to coach the leaders to be as specific as possible. The result of this exercise should be specific actions, not vague expressions. For example, a good result would be ''I will stop by Mary's desk and ask her about her ideas for the newsletter next week.'' A poor result would be, ''I will help Mary feel important.'' The latter is too vague and has little chance of leading to any change on the part of the leader.
