What most leaders seem to struggle with is, though they know the traits of great leadership, they are unable to attain them. How can leaders consistently grow to balance their IQ and EQ? How to redress the emotional impulses within and choose constructive behaviors?

Intelligence Quotient (IQ) can make you the top ranker in school, help you write a well-researched thesis, and make you a great analyst and critic of theories. Still, IQ does not necessarily get you a passing mark in teamwork, empathy, or social connections. But Emotional Quotient (EQ)—the ability to understand and manage the emotions of oneself and others—does. The role of EQ in leadership roles has been established through the theory of Resonant Leadership.

KATHMANDU, June 21: Nepal Trade Union Congress has prepared for a voting to elect a new leadership under its seventh National General Convention that began on June 19.

In the past, nations believed in the Great Man theory—leaders are born, not made.
