Many leaders still downplay emotional intelligence as a soft skill. My guest today – Diana Krieger, stands as proof that Emotional Intelligence is far from synonymous to being “a softie”. As soon as you meet her, you know that she is not quite otherworldly; she’s boisterous, chatty and sharp, with brashly friendly manners.
She’s been among the rows of the Top 50 Most Inspiring women in technology in Europe for two years in a row, but one of the first things she told me is that she’s not a fan of having the tag “inspiration” attached to her name. Watch our interview with Diana above to find out why!
This year Diana Krieger parted with her role as CEO at Savision – a Deloitte’s Fast 50 company and joined Soverin as co-founder.
“People can either be specialists or generalists.” Diana believes that diversity drives value, “As a generalist, you tend to build up experience over multiple disciplines, sectors and areas, in different industries, companies, company size, roles, departments and cultures. If you are open to learning and taking the best out of these experiences, you have the power to mould them into a leadership style and knowledge base which is diversified and unique.”[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_tta_accordion style=”modern” color=”black” c_icon=”” active_section=”1″][vc_tta_section i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-heart” title=”ABOUT DIANA” tab_id=”1480787662747-89c7ca57-9a74″ add_icon=”true”][vc_column_text]
