The Cornerstone of Success
For individuals, teams and organisations seeking to understand, develop and improve their self-awareness, interpersonal relationships, overall performance and revenue.
“Without EQ a person can have the best training in the world, an incisive, analytical mind, and an endless supply of smart ideas but he still won´t make a great leader”
Emotional Intelligence is the ability to understand, use and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathise with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict.
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE IS AN IN DEMAND SKILL:
While a leaders knowledge, skills and experience are undoubtedly important, their ability to effectively communicate, mentor, provide constructive feedback, inspire, empower, cultivate teamwork, and handle stress are equally crucial for achieving SUCCESS.
“WHEN EMOTIONS RUN HIGH, INTELLIGENCE RUNS LOW
WITHOUT EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE”
THE FIVE ASPECTS OF EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
Self-Awareness is the ability to recognise and understand your own emotions. To take emotional ownership for the emotions and feelings you are experiencing.
Self-Regulation is your ability to not only regulate and manage your emotions, but also control your impulses enabling thought before taking action.
Motivation is the internal drive to pursue goals, to reach your full potential regardless of set backs and obstacles.
Empathy is the ability to hold space for others, to be aware of their feelings, emotions and perspective.
Social Skills is the ability to read the room, to pick up on both verbal and non-verbal communication building rapport and mastering the art of communication.
The EQ-i 2.0 and EQ 360 Assessment Tool
The EQ-i 2.0 is a professional and reliable measure of emotional intelligence. It is the latest version of the renowned BarOn EQ-i, the world’s most popular emotional intelligence assessment.
This questionnaire measures emotional intelligence in 5 composite areas with 15 seperate sub-scales by asking individuals how frequently they use different emotional skills. Interpretation of the scores in each scale focuses on the importance of achieving balance across the profile.
Unlike personality which is considered relatively stable over time, emotional intelligence skills can be learned and developed as people develop in their careers.
The EQ 360 assessment provides a more in-depth analysis by gathering information from an individual’s work colleagues, manager and direct reports, resulting in a more complete 360-degree profile.
When should you use the EQ-i 2.0 tool?
Emotional Intelligence has been shown to improve over time. The EQ-i 2.0 provides individuals, managers, coaches and organisations a better understanding of an individual´s or team´s emotional intelligence but also areas for development.
The EQ-i 2.0 assessment can be used for a variety of reasons from leadership development, recruitment, coaching, improving self-awareness and improving team effectiveness.

Common Misconceptions around Emotional Intelligence
They are a soft skill and have no place in business
For many years people have placed a greater emphasis on IQ and technical skills however Daniel Goleman, an American psychologist and leading expert on Emotional Intelligence argues that emotional intelligence accounts for 67% of the abilities deemed necessary for superior performance in business and matters twice as much as IQ and technical skills.
Emotional Intelligence, IQ and Personality are all the same!
EQ can be developed and can increase as we get older, unlike IQ which tends to peak around age 17-18 years. EQ Influences the way we think, feel and behave, where personality describes an individual´s underlying traits and preferences, and tends to be fixed
How can Emotional Intelligence make a difference in your business?
Leaders who possess high emotional intelligence and utilise Positive Psychology principles tend to outperform others by achieving revenue targets up to 15-20% higher (Pepsi Co), not only fostering an environment of enhanced creativity, productivity and resilience, but also cultivate a positive mindset that encourages growth and success both in business and personal life.
Leaders incorporating positive psychology principles cultivate positive cultures, build on employees strengths, bolster optimism and wellbeing, and build better relationships and engagement, leading to increased work satisfaction. Incorporate this with higher emotional intelligence and employees are four times less likely to leave (Gallup), creating a more stable and committed workplace.
Statistics from Harvard, Stanford, and Carnegie Foundation show that 85–87% of success stems from emotional intelligence and that happy workers are up to 13% more productive (University of Oxford), take fewer sick days and are less likely to become burned out (Achor, 2011).
