Korn Ferry: Five Ways to Get Young Recruits to Embrace Emotional Intelligence
Korn Ferry shares insights on how to develop the emotional intelligence (EI) skills in next generation talent.
A Korn Ferry survey of 450 HR leaders found that 92% see emotional and social skills as crucial in a globalizing economy.
69% of recent graduates said such soft skills “get in the way of getting the job done” and that they would succeed at work without them.
83% of HR directors said those grads would never become high performing without social and emotional competence.
Here are five ways to develop EI competencies:
- Be a model
- Be an advocate for emotional intelligence
- Give feedback on the spot
- Polish your own coaching and mentoring skills
- Set up times for discussions with multiple direct reports
