New Blog Series: Windsor Reads
What makes a great leader? What are the best ways to stay motivated or motivate others? How can we improve our problem-solving skills? What are the best stress management tools for the workplace?
These are just a few of the questions we will answer in our new series- Windsor Reads. Each month a Windsor employee will read a new book designed to educate and develop individuals at all stages in their careers.
To kick start the series, our Chief Strategy Officer, Kiah Jones, read Harvard Business Reviews'- On Emotional Intelligence. This is what Kiah had to say, “This was a thought provoking read for me and a call to action. As I read the 5 Components of Emotional Intelligence at Work, I immediately thought about myself, my team and ways to raise awareness about EI. I added the criteria to our annual reviews, making a conscious decision to reference the importance of emotional intelligence at work and in everyday life. The first component is Self-Awareness. If true self-awareness exists (the ability to recognize and understand your moods, emotions and drives as well as their effects on others) then we can begin to reduce stress, ambiguity and conflict. I highly recommend this book and the 5 Components of Emotional Intelligence at Work."
