Execoach interview Manuel Bonachela, Director Gerente the Internet the elEconomista. Manuel talks about the importance of emotional intelligence in the field of journalism.
Execoach: How would you define what it means to 'work with Emotional Intelligence?
Manuel: Basically, listen to the human capital of a company and understand their needs to motivate them in achieving corporate challenges. One of the major problems, a mi juicio, the Spanish company does not know is that characterize the emotional factor, in times of crisis like this, is essential for keeping costs in check while creating new revenue. Now that we have fewer resources 'liquid', emotional capacity we need more incentives to continue creating custom oriented to real needs of the worker, that are tangible and that helps them greater motivation in everyday.
And: According to your experience, How do you think your emotional intelligence is used in the world of journalism?
Manuel: Personally, I've always found fascinating to see how journalism is able to use that factor individually with plenty of confidence-for example, when composing and launch products that connect emotionally with customers- while when composing and recycle their staffing structures, for example, still has a long way to go. The conversion happens the field of journalism will end once grab publishers connect with their work and templates with the same success that they have done so far with his readers, in any format-
And: How in your opinion would be the most efficient way to work in the company?
Manuel: I think I have to change the mentality of an inverse point we come. Above, the idea was to work a lifetime in the same company or until retirement or until, after pointing the other way when something inside of it-from basic levels to the compensation cycle changes or structure thereof- caused us extreme discomfort, this factor cuando was forced to end in Salir Company. Now, it is the opposite: the first, understand that the shift to a modern business structure will allow us more freedom in the choice and length of stay in a company. Hence, we can be brave and not just 'get carried away' but to contribute to the growth and change them with the same mentality, almost, of an entrepreneur. This is contributing to the change without fear that all or nothing we had before recorded in our DNA.
In the future we will be more enterprising, therefore, -Even within companies- that traditional employees. And companies will reward, reinforcing the award for that profile, more geared to innovation and the assumption of new responsibilities and ability to catalyze changes environments to create value and to the detriment of the old mentality, more focused on a 'docile' worker, but generating little operational value to the corporation.
And: Can you tell us some of your experiences in the use of Emotional Intelligence has been instrumental in your job?
Manuel: Working with a multidisciplinary team, with different job profiles, a high performance environment and constantly changing allows you realize that only by adopting emotional-motivational tools, active listening, 'Accompaniment', computer vision ...- you can get to be both flexible and consistent time in meeting and overcoming the challenges you set yourself.
And: HIGHLIGHT? Any new initiative undertaken by elEconomista to promote the benefits of Emotional Intelligence?
Manuel: We understand that each of our team members are individuals and, also, such persons and talent are key to the success or failure of what we do. We have tried to set an environment of 'open doors' and where there is an atmosphere of horizontality when to express or even propose objectives, products or new visions of the intellectual project. In this sense we try to give the best of ourselves and teach and learn at the same time every day of our partners, supporting them in many initiatives.
And:How to use Emotional Intelligence contributes to the development and growth of a company?
Manuel: When a person from your team grows, not only your team grows, so does the global corporate. Encourage the growth of an employee, full adaptation to the environment, reasoning corporate goals and share responsibility in meeting them to reward him when reaching is indispensable in day to day business. A motivated contributor, without fear of change and the challenges and knows how to create a culture of teamwork and cooperation is the most valuable asset that a company must have to overcome the crisis.
And: And in your experience how you think the coaching contributes to the development of Emotional Intelligence?
Manuel: The emotional process, and general, is sophisticated and work environments we tend to mix business and personal emotions that make us, often, overestimate or underestimate situations or even company-wide challenges. Knowing use the lever of emotions is crucial to come to fruition and is not something that is brought as standard: a specialist in this area can help to polish us and enhance our critical view and even assume our potential and achieve new goals.
And: What would you like to add to end?
Manuel: I think the biggest path managerial and Spanish companies are, precisely, to seek the additional value they can bring their partners and their teams. A company in which managers have no ability to connect emotionally with their templates is a company that probably will not survive the crisis. New corporate structures are more flexible to survive the change and the costs, with digitization, are much lower, but that turns to the business to business areas with almost no barriers to entry where talent that the individual or team aggregate sum of the template is what makes the success or failure of a corporation. Now more than ever, motivation and emotional factors are crucial for a company to get and strengthened to overcome a crisis of this magnitude.
