Why Invest in Emotional Intelligence?

Improve your self-awareness, self-control, motivation, empathy and social skills.

Emotional Intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that collectively help you to:

  • Understand and express yourself
  • Develop and maintain social relationships
  • Cope with challenges and manage stress
  • Use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way

75 percent of careers are derailed for reasons related to emotional competencies, including inability to handle interpersonal problems; unsatisfactory team leadership during times of difficulty or conflict; or inability to adapt to change or elicit trust.

If your emotional abilities aren't in hand, if you don't have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can't have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.

FAQs

How long does it take to complete the EQ-i self-assessment?

The online assessment consists of 133 multiple choice questions that you can do from any internet-enabled devise and typically can be completed in about 15-20 minutes.

How do you know that the EQ-i assessment works?

The assessment you will be taking is called the EQ-i 2.0, which stands for the Emotional Quotient Inventory (version 2). Just like IQ is a scientific measure of your cognitive intelligence, EQ is a scientific measure of your emotional intelligence.

The EQ-i 2.0 is the most valid and reliable measurement tool of emotional intelligence available today. We have seen this to be an incredibly useful tool for our clients personal development and we're comforted to know that it has been developed over 17 years of research on the topic.

For research nerds:

Reliability

The reliability of an assessment is often referred to as its consistency.

 The two most important types of reliability for assessments are:

  • Internal Consistency: refers to how well all the items of a certain scale measure the same idea
  • Test-Retest: refers to how well the assessment can produce the same results over time for the same person

The EQ-i 2.0 exhibits strong reliability, both in terms of internal consistency and test-retest. This means that your clients’ scores will remain stable over time (unless development efforts are used to improve their scores) and that items measuring a certain subscale all tap into aspects of that subscale. 

Validity

Validity ensures the accuracy and usefulness of an assessment. Although there are many different types of validity, they all focus on ensuring the assessment is measuring what it was designed to measure and whether it can predict important outcomes and can be assessed through a combination of several different types of validity evidence.

The EQ-i 2.0 was originally developed in North America but has been used in all regions of the world. The structure of the test, the consistency and accuracy of the items, and the results produced have been replicated across the globe and continues to enable a wide variety of cultures and languages to use the tool effectively to measure emotional intelligence. Overall, the EQ-i 2.0 has extensive evidence supporting its external validity: Predicts job performance, can be used to predict and improve leadership competencies, holds up in different regions across the world and is based on a history of assessment research spanning decades.

Can my Emotional Quotient (EQ) change over time?

YES! Unlike IQ (Intelligence Quotient), which is thought to peak around age 17 and remain fairly consistent over our lifetime, EQ (Emotional Quotient) can change. In fact, EQ tends to rise steadily with age and most individuals peak in their late 40's.

With consistent, focused effort and coaching most individuals can meaningfully improve their EQ in just a few months.
