Building a Leadership Team Leveraging Social Intelligence (Repeat)


Social Intelligence (SQ), an expansion of emotional intelligence (EQ), informs our awareness of how we are perceived and, most importantly, how this perception is both established and altered in people’s minds. It is our ability to interpret and employ metacommunication, observed in body language, facial expressions, paralanguage and movement synchronization, concurrent with advanced situational awareness, in order to establish trust with others and influence our environment. Incorporating an assessment of social intelligence skills, into agencies’ hiring and promotional processes, can set the strategic groundwork for a relatable, dynamic and cohesive law enforcement culture. Furthermore, SQ skills can be learned and improve officers’ ability to relate to others on a personal and professional level, enhancing their capacity to build rapport and communicate with intelligent empathy – especially during potentially dangerous situations.
