Your team will benefit from your energized meetings when you apply a few tips from Steve Jobs. Even though you are speaking with your team, they too need to see and  understand your passion to grab onto your ideas, concepts, programs and policies.

View this informative video, write down at least two “gems” and incorporate those tips into your meetings or classroom presentations. Add flare, give them direction, increase their participation and engage them.

Remember, your team consists of adult learners and various generations. Engage them ALL in a way in which they will retain, take action and feel a part of the business.

It’s important to remember that no matter how good your score is, there is always room to improve your emotional intelligence.  Consider areas where you are not as strong and think of ways that you can learn and grow.  Take stock of your strong points and find ways to continue to develop and apply these skills.
