Remarkable entrepreneurs and leaders know that emotional intelligence and being a likable person contribute immensely to their success. It’s no surprise when you consider that hiring key employees, managing teams and landing big deals all boils down to building trust and making meaningful connections with others. The centerpiece of this process is communication. You simply can’t afford to be a bad conversationalist.
