THE NEW AGE MANAGER

Mickey Callaway, the Mets new manager, is among the youngest of a new crop of baseball managers steeped in analytics but known for soothing egos and coaxing high performances.

This story is an example of what both employers and employees are looking for in leadership. The ‘Emotion Revolution in the Workplace’, an initiative of the Yale Centre for Emotional Intelligence and the Faas Foundation, promotes the development of emotional intelligence skills because it is in most cases the missing ingredient in leadership; and something employees at all levels hunger for. Baseball managers and managers in other sectors should all be “steeped in analytics but known for soothing egos and coaxing high performances.”
