Do you have the “X Factor” for success? Do you even know what the “X Factor” is? According to this article, emotional intelligence is the X-Factor and can be extremely valuable in law practice and to your leadership style. The article outlines key competencies to becoming emotionally intelligent: self-awareness, self-management, empathy and relationship skills. It is a great read and reminds us that “leaders are not always born,” but “they can rezoom if they understand and embrace their emotional intelligence.”
