What is Emotional Intelligence?

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?

While Emotional Intelligence isn’t the only predictor of human performance and development potential, it is proven to be a key indicator in these areas. Emotional Intelligence is also not a static factor — to the contrary, one’s Emotional Intelligence can change over time and can be developed in targeted areas.

If you want to improve the performance of your leaders, managers and teams, the key could be to improve their levels of Emotional Intelligence (EQ). The place to begin is with an EQ-i 2.0 Assessment. As the EQ-i 2.0 Assessment measures emotional intelligence (EQ), it’s important to consider what EQ is, what it measures and how it can impact people and the workplace.
