Emotional Intelligence: How to Multiply Return on Your Training Investment

Research detailed in the Human Resource Management Review determined that experiential emotional intelligence training is more effective than traditional lecture-based training. The study advised that coaching, relevant practice, and feedback are the ways to effectively influence emotional intelligence in your teams. Lectures are not enough.

Because Emotional Intelligence

Training is Not Enough

If your emotional intelligence programs are primarily lecture-based, you are unlikely to achieve an acceptable return on that investment. The mindsets that reduce an individual’s emotional competency occurred over a lifetime. They are not going to disappear as a result of a seminar, lecture, or workshop. The work it takes to enjoy an acceptable return on investment occurs in the days, weeks, and months after that training.

It Takes Practice

Where the team gains emotional intelligence that gets results is in situational, real-time, practice of its principals. They need a skilled accountability partner, a coach, and/or an experienced mentor. It takes practice in the lives of individual team members and it takes applying these principals in all areas of their lives until these competencies become their emotional default settings.

A Holistic Strategy

Some years ago, an organization at which I worked, began using a newly branded version of a program designed to measure leadership effectiveness from the team’s perspectives. We were all required to anonymously participate in multiple surveys. The initiative was expensive and it became evident that they had not invested in the full product suite, which included ongoing management support, accountability, and progress tracking.

Every penny of that investment was wasted because from the employees’ standpoints, absolutely nothing changed – neither culturally nor in the leadership’s management styles. This same phenomenon prevails with emotional intelligence initiatives. Big money spent. No institutionalization. No real results.
