Gaining greater insight into our colleagues’ lives allows decision making to include more purposeful diversity of thought, background, and ways of working. It’s so easy to judge others if you don’t understand them. But if you imagine what it’s like to be in their shoes, it paves the way for more respect, collaboration and team productivity. It may take more time up front, but in the end, having and using emotional intelligence with others allows for a more civil, dynamic, productive and welcoming work environment for employees and customers.
