It is imperative therefore that the changing dimensions of the socioeconomic perspectives in the society demands leadership that is guided by strong principles of social intelligence. As a composite factor, social intelligence is the benchmark towards social integration and cohesion between the various stakeholders within an organization that shape its overall functionality and success.
It is the attribute that helps the leader to meet the motivational and inspirational needs which consequently initiate their due performance as modeled by the results of the strong organization behavior that is catalyzed and synchronized by managerial leadership in meeting the minds and needs of the people under the leadership (Karl, 2005, p. 43) Conceptually, social intelligence can be described as the process that ignites the essence of collaboration and teamwork which therefore provides efficiency in their output delivery.
It can also be described as the fueling attributes for the strength towards positive attitude for each person within his/her capacity. The changing precepts of the society due to political, economic and social-structural parameters demands the organizational attribute of meeting the demands of corporate social responsibility. This implies the shared responsibility between the benefits of the organizational output and the input benefits of the contemporary society (Karl, 2005, p. 56)
According to Karl (2005), the changing nature of the social structures demands strong motivation to the various stakeholders that are of essentiality in the success of the corporate objectives. These needs and requirements of the society are explicitly changing due to the continuous conflict and integration of the basic variable and precepts that provides a strong social fabric (P. 59). Meeting the demands of the constantly changing society demands the degenerative leadership modalities that are founded on strong capacities of social intelligence which would therefore help to meet the needs of the society.
Importantly therefore, the impacts of social intelligence on leadership are explicitly profound if the benefits between organizations and the society was never to be compromised. It demands rationality therefore to say that the values and attributes that are embedded in this tool of leadership remains important in the shared success between the organizations and their different stakeholders.
