The EQ-i 2.0 Model
For almost 20 years, consultants and organizations have trusted the science that underpins the EQ-i 2.0® (and its predecessor the EQ-i 1.0) to help improve human performance. The EQ-i 2.0 is a psychometric assessment which measures emotional intelligence (EI) and how it can impact people and the workplace. Being the first scientifically validated measure of EI, coupled with research from premier organizations, means you can count on the EQ-i 2.0 model to add robustness and accuracy to your talent management.
Teachable Coaching Moments
Emotional intelligence is not a static factor – to the contrary, one’s emotional intelligence changes over time and can be developed in targeted areas.
Based on your customized EQ report, we provide a unique strategy to help you use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.
High EQ = Results
According to a Career Builder Survey, 59 percent of U.S. hiring managers and human resources professionals say they wouldn’t hire someone who has a high IQ but low EQ.
A study published in the Journal of Vocational Behavior found having a high EQ can even help you earn more.
According to research by psychologist Daniel Goleman, "The Father of Emotional Intelligence", success—both personal and organizational—is 80% emotional intelligence, or EQ, and only 20% IQ.
Research by Goleman found 80 percent of employees with poor manager relationships are disengaged, and 50 percent of former employees left to get away from their manager.
Emotional intelligence accounted for up to 60 percent of the job performance for supervisors through CEOs.
Empathy - An Important Component of Emotional Intelligence
Empathy is simply a skill that allows you to see and experience the world from another person's perspective. ~The EQ Edge (Steven Stein, PhD & Howard Book, MD)
Empathy is a way to understand the emotional experience of someone else. A leader uses empathy to build relationships with employees. Colleagues who empathize with each other improve their work environment by building trust, respect and mutual understanding.
Empathy is one of the most underused and misunderstood dimensions of emotional intelligence. We incorporate tips and strategies into our EI coaching program, so with practice and patience, you can improve this skill over time.
