Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence is the number one influential factor in good leadership*.

Your EQ-i 2.0 assessment

The EQ-i 2.0® and EQ-360 instruments measure emotional intelligence (EI) and how it can impact people and the workplace. The 1-5-15 factor structure the EQ-i 2.0® features is one overarching EI score (Total EI), broken down into five composite scores which, in turn, are broken down into a total of 15 subscales.

By identifying the areas that need improvement, the client can immediately begin developing those areas. At the same time, areas where the client excels can be leveraged to their full potential to maximise effectiveness in daily tasks.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.

Why is Emotional Intelligence important for Leaders?

Over 30 years of research confirms that developing “emotionally intelligent leaders” is more important than any other factor to retain and develop the talent required to lead innovation and business growth.

Also, many professionals find it easier to focus on improving a few specific skills that underlie broader leadership competencies, making the EQ-i 2.0® subscales the perfect building blocks to reaching your leadership potential.

“Council uses the EQ-i® instrument, in conjunction with MBTI®, as the fundamental basis for our Leadership Development Program. The EQ-i® tool has seen our emerging leaders learn more about themselves, how they utilise their emotions in the workplace and how their actions and reactions can impact on their effectiveness as a leader. Armed with this insight, it is great to see them practically develop these skills throughout the program.”
