Emotional Intelligence – EQi 2.0
Emotional Intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that collectively establish and influence how well we:
- Perceive & express ourselves
- Develop and maintain social relationships
- Cope with challenges
- Use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way (make decisions)
We can provide the EQi 2.0 and EQi 360 range of emotional intelligence assessments to aid in your professional and personal development. The EQi 2.0 Emotional Intelligence framework is one of the most widely used, empirically proven and scientifically valid instruments available in the world today. In fact over 1 million people have taken the EQi Assessment.
Emotional Intelligence has been found to be a very important predictor of success for people in organisations as well as in life! We all know people who failed miserably in school, yet turned out to be very successful people based on their ability to get along and work with other people effectively. Based on their IQ, this may not have been expected.
… and the really good news is that unlike IQ, emotional intelligence is not a static factor. On the contrary, one’s emotional intelligence can change over time and can be developed in targeted areas.
Applications of emotional intelligence using the EQi 2.0 that we can assist you with include:
- Leadership Development
- Organizational Development
- Executive Coaching
- Team Building
The EQi 2.0 has a number of reports that can be tailored to suit your particular need.The four different reports we can generate for you are:
- Workplace Report
- Leadership Report
- Team or Group Report
- 360 Degree Report
How we use EQi 2.0
We use EQi 2.0 either as part of a Coaching Program or it can be used as part of a leadership development program. It can also be used as part of a Team Building program.
Areas that EQi 2.0 measures
The EQi 2.0 model is a 1-5-15 factor structure which contains 133 questions. Each report gives an overarching EI score (Total EI), broken down into five composite scores which, in turn, are broken down into a total of 15 sub-scales as shown below.
Self-Regard – Respecting oneself while understanding and accepting one’s strenghts and weaknesses. Self-Regard is often associated with feelings of inner strength and self-confidence.
Self-Actualization – Persistently trying to improve oneself and engage in the pursuit of personally relevant and meaningful objectives that lead to a rich and enjoyable life.
Emotional Self-Awareness – Recognizing and understanding one’s emotions. This includes the ability to differentiate between subtleties in one’s own emotions while understanding the cause of these emotions and the impact that they have on throughs and actions of oneself and others.
- Flexibility – Adapting emotions, thoughts and behaviors to unfamiliar, unpredictable, and dynamic circumstances or ideas.
