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

Daniel Goleman

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:

  • Emotional intelligence is among the 10 most in-demand skills and will be through at least 2025 (World Economic Forum).
  • Only 42% of organisations provide specific training to help employees cultivate emotional intelligence (Niagra Institute).
  • Out of 34 essential workplace skills, emotional intelligence was found to be the strongest predictor of performance, explaining a full 58% of success in all types of jobs. (TalentSmart)
  • 57% of people managers say that their highest-performing employees have strong emotional intelligence.(Lee Hecht Harrison Penna)

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.

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.

EQ-i 2.0 and EQ 360 Assessment

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
