The EQ-i 2.0® Emotional Intelligence Assessment
Research shows that emotional intelligence (EQ) more than cognitive intelligence (IQ) or technical skill accounts for a great deal of workplace success. Emotional intelligence is not one trait that we do or don’t possess. EQ is a set of emotional and social skills that collectively establish how well we: (1) perceive and express ourselves, (2) develop and maintain social relationships, (3) cope with challenges, and (4) use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way (MHS). Essentially, EQ is a person’s ability to manage emotions in a manner that results in successful interpersonal relationships. And EQ skills can be developed.
The People Skills Group uses the EQ-i 2.0 to help people identify, understand, develop and balance emotional intelligence skills for managing productive and effective workplace relationships. The EQ-i assesses how you operate emotionally, your areas of strength and potential areas for development on fifteen individual skills related to five EQ dimensions. The assessment can be administered individually, in team sessions or in a 360 multi-rater format. The EQ-i 2.0 is the world’s leading measure of emotional intelligence.
Based on the work of Dr. Reuven Bar-On, it is the most reliable and valid of the current emotional intelligence measure on the market.
