Emotional Intelligence Framework
Emotional intelligence, otherwise known as EQ, helps us better understand what motivates others. It also helps us work more cooperatively with others.The more skillful you are at discerning the feelings behind others’ signals the better you will be able to control the signals you send back to them. As a result, you will be more successful in life.
Emotional intelligence is a set of skills that are thought to contribute to the appraisal of emotions in oneself and others. It can also help contribute to the effective regulation of emotions as well as feelings (Salovey & Mayer, 1990).
The basic premise behind emotional intelligence is all about building awareness and building a capacity to work well with others. Being aware of our own emotions and using them consciously can help us be more aware of others’ emotions.
Workplace Emotional Intelligence
Research suggests that emotional intelligence is a predictor of performance and success in the workplace
Feelings were popularly considered to be illogical and detrimental to productivity. But emotions are not extraneous experiences that come upon us without good reason. Current research tells us that emotions are integral to our success in both our personal and professional lives. Rather than interfering with good decision making, emotions are in fact necessary and critical for effective decisions (Damasio, 1994). Emotionally intelligent managers are seen as having a greater potential for leadership, and tend to receive higher salaries and more promotions than people with lower emotional intelligence.Brochure Sample Report
Leadership Emotional Assessment
Emotional Intelligence assessments are an inexpensive, simple and very effective way to impact leadership development.
More than a decade ago, Goleman highlighted the importance of emotional intelligence in leadership, telling the Harvard Business Review, “The most effective leaders are all alike in one crucial way: They all have a high degree of what has come to be known as emotional intelligence. It’s not that IQ and technical skills are irrelevant. They do matter, but...they are the entry-level requirements for executive positions.”Brochure Sample Report

While the EQ-i 2.0® identifies the level of a client’s emotional and social functioning based on his or her responses, the EQ 360 assessment provides a more in-depth analysis by having those who work with the client provide information as well. When observer ratings are compared with the results of an EQ-i 2.0 self-report, a more complete 360 degree profile emerges.
The EQ 360 identifies key employee strengths that can be leveraged to the benefit of the organization, as well as impediments to high performance that could be improved.Sample Report
