Conclusion

Developing your personal competence is crucial so that you can better weather the stress of working with toxic managers whom you will undoubtedly meet and so that you do not become a toxic manager to others. The more you are aware of your feelings and the more you are in control of them, the better you will be able to interact with others in ways that foster cooperation, promote mutual respect, increase motivation, and avoid unnecessary escalation of disagreements and polarization. Personal competence is also a shield against burnout. Personal competence means that you are master of yourself rather than a slave to difficult situations and the painful feelings they evoke. Personal competence is power.

It is also the key to advancement. Research on emotional intelligence has shown that the area in which CEOs excel far beyond others is in having very high levels of self-control. This is the key to coming across as a professional, to gaining others’ confidence, to developing a degree of charisma, and to avoiding self-sabotage.
