Emotional intelligence is a set of emotional, social and relational skills that guide the way we perceive, understand and express ourselves; connect with others; manage interpersonal exchange; cope with challenges; and apply emotional information in an effective, meaningful way.
For the Individual
Understanding your level of Emotional Intelligence will bring clarity in determining how appropriately and effectively you apply your knowledge and feelings in a given situation. It’s this understanding that forms the basis on which you can make adjustments in order to be more effective in the future; personally as well as professionally.
For the Organization
Did you know? IQ contributes to only 5 to 10% of the variance of determination of success in work and life.
The Emotional Intelligence assessment, better known as EIQ-2, is designed to aid HR professionals, performance coaches, and occupational psychologists to measure how often people demonstrate 32 emotionally intelligent workplace behaviors.
A recent study of emotional intelligence, (along with 33 other important workplace skills,) found that emotional intelligence is the single strongest predictor of workplace performance, accounting for a full 58% of success in all types of jobs. Similar studies have found that 90% of top performers are also high in emotional intelligence. On the flip side, just 20% of bottom performers are high in emotional intelligence. An employee can be a top performer without emotional intelligence, but the chances are slim.
Applications of EIQ-2 Assessment:
- Measure the level of emotional intelligence while recruiting for any position with people management duties.
- Learn how to improve decision making, leadership, reading the emotions in others, and engaging in a greater number of mutually beneficial workplace outcomes.
- Design customized emotional intelligence training for your staff based on the specific emotional intelligence requirements of your management and leadership teams.
- Promote employees to leadership positions based on their potential to influence people around them and make a strong impact.
