Emotional Intelligence: A Predictor for Leadership Performance

A Conversation with Lucy Zielinski of Lumina Health Partners and Dr. Cheri Olson of IPMA

Episode Overview:
Highly effective leaders have a high Emotional Intelligence or Quotient (EQ), understand when to manage and when to lead, and know how to handle complex situations. Through two role plays, a good example and a bad example of EQ are presented in a medical practice between the medical director and a primary care provider.

In this episode of Value-Based Care Insights, Daniel J. Marino speaks to Lucy Zielinski of Lumina Health Partners and Dr. Cheri Olson of IPMA to share techniques to increase EQ and grow in leadership skills. Here are some key takeaways:

  • When delivering messages, it is important to practice active listening and ask for feedback.
  • Advance your EQ by taking self-assessments and getting a coach.
  • EQ skills are not only inherent – they can be learned, practiced, and improved.
