Emotional Intelligence

The EQ-i 2.0® Assessment

Studies have shown Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0) can be a verifiable reflection of one’s overall well-being and ability to succeed in life. Unlike Intelligence Quotient (IQ), which is a relatively static measurement in adulthood, Emotional Intelligence can be developed and changed over time.

Evaluating and then working to develop an individual’s EQ-i can dramatically improve their interaction with others, performance at work and leadership potential. Although other factors contribute to a person’s overall potential and performance, the level of someone’s EQ-i is a key indicator of what they will be able to offer.

EQ-i 2.0 is a highly effective employee development tool because it not only identifies development potential and pitfalls but also provides targeted strategies needed to make improvements. It can be useful for companies in the recruitment and retention of successful, emotionally healthy employees as well.

The EQ 360® Assess­ment

A client’s social and emotional functioning are identified by his or her own responses in the EQ-i 2.0, but the EQ 360 assessment gives a more complete, comprehensive analysis by also utilizing information anonymously provided by others who know the client.

Clear alignment with EQ-i 2.0 makes the results easy to understand and interpret. The reports are structured in a very clear and linear manner that is easy to reference and follow and includes not only the feedback of all the raters but also the participant’s feedback consolidated into one report. By getting feedback from others, the individual is able to see themselves from a different perspective which is often different than their own self-perception and can go a long way in helping them improve not only as a person but also as a leader.

There is also an EQ 360 Leadership assessment available to provide the most comprehensive look into an individual’s level of emotional intelligence, providing insight into their leadership abilities and how others view them in leadership roles.

EQ-i 2.0® Leadership Report

With a flexible, customizable framework, the EQ-i 2.0 Leadership allows you to create a report that is catered to your preferred leadership model, quickly pinpointing what you find important. The report is leader specific, ensuring relevance and results for your organization.

The EQ-i 2.0 report can be specifically targeted to any individual, leader, or group. In the leadership report, one can compare their EQ results to the score ranges of top leaders (whose scores were in the top 50% of the leader sample).

The leadership report also contains the four competencies which are most important for being an effective leader, maximising productivity and work satisfaction, creating trust, and fostering organisational loyalty.

The competencies of authenticity, coaching, insight and innovation are explained, and the EQ-i 2.0 sub-scales which most relate to each competency are listed.

Best practices and strategies for action make the model practical and drive developmental results. In addition, a specific benchmark comparing leaders to other top leaders will help your company gain a competitive advantage.
