Palm Springs, CA -- In recent years, we’ve seen an unprecedented paradigm shift: businesses are transitioning from the traditional chain-of-command management model to creating and sustaining a more collaborative, team-engaged culture.
Maureen Moriarty is the founder of Path to Change, an executive coaching practice dedicated to helping emerging managers and senior leaders to be more effective by enhancing their ability to lead, communicate and collaborate. Path to Change helps business leaders and managers improve leadership and team performance through organizational development consulting, executive coaching and leadership development training.
“True leadership is about inspiring people to do more than just show up,” says Moriarty. “It’s about challenging and supporting people to reach their potential and higher levels of excellence.”
A recent Gallup poll of more than one million employed U.S. workers concluded that the number one reason people quit their jobs is because of a bad boss or supervisor. Bad bosses often lack self-awareness. They don’t understand how their behavior negatively impacts their teams. According to Moriarty, it is your emotional intelligence – your capacity for self-awareness, adaptability and interpersonal communication, particularly under stress – that will ultimately determine your effectiveness as a leader.
“If you look at the research that’s been done on what derails leaders, it’s all connected to emotional intelligence,” says Moriarty. “I help my clients become more self-aware and more mindful of how their behaviors and actions impact people positively and negatively and how to be more effective under challenges. Great leaders are not born. They are molded, taught, guided and developed."
