The New YardstickThe rules for work are changing We re being judged by a new yardstick not just by how smart we are, or by our training and expertise, but also by how well we handle ourselves and each other This yardstick is increasingly applied in choosing who will be hired and who will not, who will be let go and who retained, who passed over and who promoted.The new rules predict who is most likely to become a star performer and who is most prone to derailing And, no matter what field we work in currently, they measure the traits that are crucial to our marketability for future jobs.These rules have little to do with what we were told was important in school academic abilities are largely irrelevant to this standard The new measure takes for granted having enough intellectual ability and technical know how to do our jobs it focuses instead on personal qualities, such as initiative and empathy, adaptability and persuasiveness.This is no passing fad, nor just the management nostrum of the moment The data that argue for taking it seriously are based on studies of tens of thousands of working people, in callings of every kind The research distills with unprecedented precision which qualities mark a star performer And it demonstrates which human abilities make up the greater part of the ingredients for excellence at workmost especially for leadership.If you work in a large organization, even now you are probably being evaluated in terms of these capabilities, though you may not know it If you are applying for a job, you are likely to be scrutinized through this lens, though, again, no one will tell you so explicitly Whatever your job, understanding how to cultivate these capabilities can be essential for success in your career.If you are part of a management team, you need to consider whether your organization fosters these competencies or discourages them To the degree your organizational climate nourishes these competencies, your organization will be effective and productive You will maximize your group s intelligence, the synergistic interaction of every person s best talents.If you work for a small organization or for yourself, your ability to perform at peak depends to a very great extent on your having these abilitiesthough almost certainly you were never taught them in school Even so, your career will depend, to a greater or lesser extent, on how well you have mastered these capacities.In a time with no guarantees of job security, when the very concept of a job is rapidly being replaced by portable skills, these are prime qualities that make and keep us employable Talked about loosely for decades under a variety of names, from character and personality to soft skills and competence, there is at last a precise understanding of these human talents, and a new name for them emotional intelligence A Different Way of Being SmartI had the lowest cumulative grade point average ever in my engineering school, the codirector of a consulting firm tells me But when I joined the army and went to officer candidate school, I was number one in my classit was all about how you handle yourself, get along with people, work in teams, leadership And that s what I find to be true in the world of work.In other words, what matters is a different way of being smart In my book Emotional Intelligence, my focus was primarily on education, though a short chapter dealt with implications for work and organizational life.What caught me by utter surpriseand delighted mewas the flood of interest from the business community Responding to a tidal wave of letters and faxes, e mails and phone calls, requests to speak and consult, I found myself on a global odyssey, talking to thousands of people, from CEOs to secretaries, about what it means to bring emotional intelligence to work This search has taken me back to research I participated in while a graduate student, and then faculty member, at Harvard University That research was part of an early challenge to the IQ mystiquethe false but widely embraced notion that what matters for success is intellect alone This work helped spawn what has now become a mini industry that analyzes the actual competencies that make people successful in jobs and organizations of every kind, and the findings are astonishing IQ takes second position to emotional intelligence in determining outstanding job performance.Analyses done by dozens of different experts in close to five hundred corporations, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations worldwide have arrived independently at remarkably similar conclusions, and their findings are particularly compelling because they avoid the biases or limits inherent in the work of a single individual or group Their conclusions all point to the paramount place of emotional intelligence in excellence on the job in virtually any job Some MisconceptionsAs I ve toured the world talking and consulting with people in business, I ve encountered certain widespread misunderstandings about emotional intelligence Let me clear up some of the most common at the outset First, emotional intelligence does not mean merely being nice At strategic moments it may demand not being nice, but rather, for example, bluntly confronting someone with an uncomfortable but consequential truth they ve been avoiding.Second, emotional intelligence does not mean giving free rein to feelingsletting it all hang out Rather, it means managing feelings so that they are expressed appropriately and effectively, enabling people to work together smoothly toward their common goals.Also, women are not smarter than men when it comes to emotional intelligence, nor are men superior to women Each of us has a personal profile of strengths and weaknesses in these capacities Some of us may be highly empathic but lack some abilities to handle our own distress others may be quite aware of the subtlest shift in our own moods, yet be inept socially.It is true that men and women as groups tend to have a shared, gender specific profile of strong and weak points An analysis of emotional intelligence in thousands of men and women found that women, on average, are aware of their emotions, show empathy, and are adept interpersonally Men, on the other hand, are self confident and optimistic, adapt easily, and handle stress better.In general, however, there are far similarities than differences Some men are as empathic as the most interpersonally sensitive women, while some women are every bit as able to withstand stress as the most emotionally resilient men Indeed, on average, looking at the overall ratings for men and women, the strengths and weaknesses average out, so that in terms of total emotional intelligence, there are no sex differences.Finally, our level of emotional intelligence is not fixed genetically, nor does it develop only in early childhood Unlike IQ, which changes little after our teen years, emotional intelligence seems to be largely learned, and it continues to develop as we go through life and learn from our experiencesour competence in it can keep growing In fact, studies that have tracked people s level of emotional intelligence through the years show that people get better and better in these capabilities as they grow adept at handling their own emotions and impulses, at motivating themselves, and at honing their empathy and social adroitness There is an old fashioned word for this growth in emotional intelligence maturity. Why This Matters NowAt a California biotech start up, the CEO proudly enumerated the features that made his organization state of the art No one, including him, had a fixed office instead, everyone carried a small laptoptheir mobile officeand was wired to everyone else Job titles were irrelevant employees worked in cross functional teams and the place bubbled with creative energy People routinely put in seventy and eighty hour work weeks.So what s the downside I asked him.There is no downside, he assured me.And that was the fallacy Once I was free to talk with staff members, I heard the truth The hectic pace had people feeling burned out and robbed of their private lives And though everyone could talk via computer to everyone else, people felt that no one was truly listening to them.People desperately felt the need for connection, for empathy, for open communication.In the new, stripped down, every job counts business climate, these human realities will matter than ever Massive change is a constant technical innovations, global competition, and the pressures of institutional investors are ever escalating forces for flux.Another reality makes emotional intelligence ever crucial As organizations shrink through waves of downsizing, those people who remain are accountableand visible Where earlier a midlevel employee might easily hide a hot temper or shyness, now competencies such as managing one s emotions, handling encounters well, teamwork, and leadership, showand count than ever.The globalization of the workforce puts a particular premium on emotional intelligence in wealthier countries Higher wages in these countries, if they are to be maintained, will depend on a new kind of productivity And structural fixes or technological advances alone are not enough As at the California biotech firm, streamlining or other innovations often create new problems that cry out for even greater emotional intelligence.As business changes, so do the traits needed to excel Data tracking the talents of star performers over several decades reveal that two abilities that mattered relatively little for success in the 1970s have become crucially important in the 1990s team building and adapting to change And entirely new capabilities have begun to appear as traits of star performers, notably change catalyst and leveraging diversity New challenges demand new talents A Coming Crisis Rising IQ, Dropping EQSince 1918, when World War I brought the first mass use of IQ tests on American army recruits, the average IQ score in the United States has risen 24 points, and there has been a similar rise in developed countries around the world The reasons include better nutrition, children completing schooling, computer games and puzzles that help children master spatial skills, and smaller family size which generally correlates with higher IQ scores in children.There is a dangerous paradox at work, however As children grow ever smarter in IQ, their emotional intelligence is on the decline Perhaps the most disturbing single piece of data comes from a massive survey of parents and teachers that shows the present generation of children to be emotionally troubled than the last On average, children are growing lonely and depressed, angry and unruly, nervous and prone to worry, impulsive and aggressive.Two random samples of American children, age seven to sixteen, were evaluated by their parents and teachersadults who knew them well The first group was assessed in the mid 1970s, and a comparable group was surveyed in the late 1980s Over that decade and a half there was a steady worsening of children s emotional intelligence Although poorer children started out at a lower level on average, the rate of decline was the same across all economic groupsas steep in the wealthiest suburbs as in the poorest inner city slum.Dr Thomas Achenbach, the University of Vermont psychologist who did these studiesand who has collaborated with colleagues on similar assessments in other nationstells me that the decline in children s basic emotional competencies seems to be worldwide The most telling signs of this are seen in rising rates among young people of problems such as despair, alienation, drug abuse, crime and violence, depression or eating disorders, unwanted pregnancies, bullying, and dropping out of school.What this portends for the workplace is quite troubling growing deficiencies among workers in emotional intelligence, particularly among those newest to the job Most of the children that Achenbach studied in the late 1980s will be in their twenties by the year 2000 The generation that is falling behind in emotional intelligence is entering the workforce today.
