Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a diverse combination of emotional and interpersonal competencies that influence our ability to effectively manage and thrive within the requests and pressures of work, life, personal and professional goals. The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i) incorporates 20+ years of research and psychometrically endorsed development. The EQ-i is a validated assessment instrument that provides raw honesty, applicable for individual, team, and executive levels. The EQ-i is respected and recognized across the globe to draw awareness to and enhance your leadership.
In the book, The EQ Edge, Steven Stein PH.D and Howard Book, M.D give some brilliant examples of Emotional Intelligence and its application for your success. I will quote below;
“Only in recent years have we begun to appreciate the powerful links between emotional intelligence and a greater, more satisfying, and more well-rounded definition of success which embraces the workplace, marriage and personal relationships, social popularity, and spiritual and physical well-being.”
“The stronger your emotional intelligence, the more likely you are to be successful as a worker, a parent, a manager, an adult child to your own parents, a partner to your significant other, or a candidate for a workplace position.”
“In fact, one can make the argument that in order for us to take advantage of our cognitive intelligence and flex it to the maximum, we first need good emotional intelligence. Why? Because regardless of how brainy we may be, if we turn others off with abrasive behaviour, are unaware of how we are presenting ourselves, or cave in under minimal stress, no one will stick around long enough to notice our high IQs. “
The EQ-i 2.0 is an individual self-assessment. The EQ 360 includes your self-assessment as well as a list of chosen ‘raters’ who will answer the same assessment with your workplace performance and leadership effectiveness in mind. The EQ 360 will test your perception of workplace leadership against that of your Manager (choose one, if applicable), Peers (minimum of four), Direct Reports (minimum of four), friends/family (minimum of four), Others (clients or individuals previously listed that don’t meet the minimum criteria of four raters).
