Another key profiling tool we use is the EQ-i 2.0. This is the first scientifically validated EI assessment tool in the world and the most popular available for all employees, leaders, teams or in 360° feedback form.
The EQ-i 2.0 helps individuals and teams use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way improving self-awareness, the way they express themselves, how they develop and maintain relationships, how they problem-solve and make decisions and how they cope with challenges and change.
Think about the leaders you've worked for who you most admired. The leaders who inspired you, motivated you, challenged you and brought out the best in you. What were they like?
The likelihood is that they were self-aware, authentic, confident, great communicators, empathic, objective, calm in a crisis and so on. All key elements of what we call Emotional Intelligence.
In fact research suggests that in distinguishing high performers in every field, EQ (emotional intelligence) matters twice as much as IQ or technical ability.
Moreover, the beauty of EQ is that it can be learnt and developed throughout life; IQ is fixed from about the age of 17.
Thus the EQ-i 2.0 analyses five key areas of Emotional Intelligence:
- Self-perception (knowing one's own emotions)
- Self-expression (how we express our emotions)
- Interpersonal skills (how we relate to others)
- Decision-making (how emotions impact decision-making)
- Stress management (how to use our emotions positively)
The reports increase your self-awareness highlighting your strengths and development areas, enhance your understanding of others and how they perceive you and give you practical, actionable ways of developing this highly significant and often under-valued set of skills to improve your business and leadership capabilities.
