It’s been two and a half years since Frank Herbert’s Dune Part 1 was released in theaters to overwhelming critical acclaim. Now, we’re ready to see and learn the leadership lessons in Dune Part 2. 

Dune Part 2 continues where the first Dune movie left off. Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) is back. He’s struggling to acclimate to the Fremen culture, which is different from the culture he was brought up in. He’s also dealing with the weight and challenge of the Lisan al Gaib prophecy proclaimed over him.

Getting into Dune Part 2 was difficult for me. I watched the first movie years ago. I should have rewatched the prequel before stepping into this movie. There would have been less confusion and maybe even more enjoyment from the film.

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I went to see the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem movie. My mind wandered to “Oh great, another reboot… and the animation looks sloppy.” 

Other than my love for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there wasn’t much desire to see this new film. Yet, I went because of Reel Leadership. I had to see the latest movie so I could share the leadership lessons found in the film.

I’m glad I did. This reboot was done well and shone as a great example of doing a reboot well.

The Power Of Emotional Intelligence In Leadership

Are you aware of your emotions? Do you know how to control them? More importantly, do you know how to express your feelings?

Then there’s a good chance you’re an emotionally intelligent leader. If you couldn’t answer the questions above in the affirmative, don’t worry. You can learn how to become more emotionally intelligent. Figuring out our emotions and how to deal with them can feel a lot like solving a Rubik’s Cube.

You can work on emotional intelligence, like many of our interpersonal skills. Just because you’ve been bad at relating to others, expressing yourself, and controlling your emotions doesn’t mean you can’t.

Why Emotional Intelligence Is Important

If you’ve ever worked for a leader who lacked emotional intelligence, you know how difficult it can be. The leader flies off the handle at the most minor issue. Maybe the boss kept all of his feelings bottled up. You never knew who he was going to be on a given day.
