When it comes to leading, successful entrepreneurs must learn to adopt a variety of skillsets. And in order to do so, it requires the capacity to try and try again until they figure out what mix works best for them and their team. But, it would appear, that great leaders generally share a similar trait– the ability to connect with others on a human level. This emotional intelligence is more clearly defined as having the knowhow to manage themselves and their relationships effectively and positively. More and more research is showing that what distinguishes outstanding leaders is their degree of emotional intelligence and not necessarily their technical or analytical skills.
