    Well I left my last job in a main dealer in Aylesbury due to this very fact. He may well have been highly qualified but had zero, what I call people skills. You call it EQ but it equates to the same thing. Had no idea about the people he had "authority" over and consequently the staff turn over for service advisors were unprecedented. Shouting in your staffs face to get his point across does not go down well with many individuals but was allowed to talk to his staff this way. Diabolical.
    There is a lot to be said for identifying and understanding, not only staff but more importantly, customers needs.
    Totally agree with the findings of this topic.
