According to an economic model, in a company of 500 employees where two thirds are offered and accept the Counselling treatment or Supervision, an investment of £20,676 will result in a net profit of approximately £83,278 over a two year period.5
Promoting wellbeing at work through personalised information and advice, a risk-assessment questionnaire, workshops and web-based materials will cost approximately £80 per employee per year. For a company with 500 employees, where all employees undergo the intervention, it is estimated that an initial investment of £40,000 will result in a net return of £347,722 in savings. Your leaders, management, employees if they are not accessing appropriate support – can impact your business through: absenteeism; presentism; relational issues; increasing the risk of psychological or physical incident/injury.

Leaders & Managers – Supervision using Emotional Intelligence
Social and emotional intelligence for life and business management.
At the foundation of superior performance is: good decision-making. And that’s where your emotional intelligence (EQ) comes in. Emotional intelligence has the capacity to have you be aware of, control, and express one’s emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.
Talking about emotion is not an accepted norm in all businesses. Too often people attempt to eliminate emotion in their decision-making processes. Yet emotion is part of every interaction and every decision, whether you know it or not. In fact, emotion is data, just like the numbers on a balance sheet.
The Bottom Line:
To influence and work confidently with others and to contribute successfully to the growth and performance of an organization, leaders and managers need to know what is happening around them, understand what they are experiencing in the moment and recognise what it might be like to be in someone else’s shoes. Crucially, leaders, managers need to learn how to tune in to their inner signals and understand how their emotions affect them and those around them and the impact on performance.
Leaders and managers are not infallible in making a mistake. They too, react inconsiderately to situations rather than taking the time to be self-strategic. The simple act of taking a step back to read before you lead will result in more interactions where you achieve your desired results engaging regular workplace supervision sessions helps emotional intelligence to develop and implement. The most encouraging part about emotional intelligence is that the skills can be learned. You’ll find that if you take even small steps, the ROI on your effort will be substantial. “Emotional intelligence” is the key to both personal and professional success”.
Leaders and management are unique; successfully get to where they are by driving results but once they get to the top, a shift is necessary. They now need to achieve results through others. Their focus moves from their personal accomplishments to a wider vision and strategy aimed at growing the competence and confidence of their people.
Having substantial Emotional Intelligence can bridge the performance gaps of: high lighting awareness, manage skill weaknesses, and a workplace supervisor can leverage these talents. The greater ability managers and leaders have to receive feedback, understand themselves, their people, and their situations, the more likely they are to choose an approach that will create the best result for their organisation.
