Over the years, I have learned some critical lessons around investments and have gained the experience and confidence to become successful in especially risky investments.
One of the most important investment leadership strategies I have learned though is about people and relationships.
In life and leadership, you can only go so far without proper and balanced investments in emotional capital.
Lessons I learned in this area started in leadership and eventually, I had an ‘ah-ha’ moment and began carrying the same lessons over into my personal life.
What an incredible difference that has made in my life!
It is just as important to know when to eliminate your investment to avoid unhealthy relationships.
What is Emotional Capital?
Emotional capital is a ‘currency’ held by two people in any relationship.
As with any investment, it is built over time and regularly exchanged between the two participants.
There are times of investing in capital, and there are times of withdrawal of money.
Think of your strongest and most sustainable relationships.
Whether you know it or not, the emotional bond and connection along with the strength of sustainability can be attributed to mutual investments of emotional capital.
