Lunch and Learn with Lindsay – Issue 67: Emotional Intelligence & See you at The PA Show 2021!

The recent furore around Simone Biles hit a nerve for many, including Lucy Brazier OBE who prompted me to share and comment on her message on LinkedIn here.

Based on recent conversations I’ve had with you, my EA, PA and Executive Support clients, I am concerned that the world of work is heading straight back to its “old ways” – harder, faster, pressurised working that puts a strain on the mental wellbeing of all based on targets and ROI of monetary or statistical measure. 

What happened to the learning thoughout the lockdown period and (continuing) pandemic that WE need to come first? 

Emotional Intelligence needs to be at the fore and core of leadership. ROI needs to be in the form of happy, well employees. 

We all need to recognise and support our own and others emotional wellbeing and I applaud Simone Biles for stepping away and having this self-awareness and self-care. 

On that note then, “Emotional Intelligence” is my chosen subject to share with you at the upcoming PA Show taking place at Excel on 1st and 2nd September.  It’s pertinent, topical and indeed necessary learning at a time when we are recalibrating and finding balance in a return to our offices or hybrid working plans.
