So what is Emotional Intelligence/EQ? 

Emotional Quotient or Emotional Intelligence is defined as “the set of personal, social and emotional competencies that impact on a person’s ability to deal with daily demands and stresses in life, and to be successful in life in general.” This is the important bit. Unlike IQ (which peaks at around 17), our EQ develops throughout our life.  The good news is that the development of EQ can be accelerated with the proper support, training and coaching.  But first, we need an accurate way of measuring it – the EQ-i®.

Why is Emotional Intelligence Importance?

You already know that humans aren’t logical. Far from it – we are highly emotional. The brain uses emotion to navigate the world around us and to aid survival. In order to thrive, we need to understand how to use – and develop – this emotional compass.

Research in Emotional Intelligence originated in order to gain an understanding as to why some individuals with high IQ were not necessarily successful in the workplace, or in life in general, and to gain further understanding of the impact of other skills and competencies on workplace and personal success. 

Emotional Intelligence has been credited with up to 85% of success in leaders. Investing in these skills enables you to make the most of your talents and abilities. The EQ-i can be delivered as a stand-alone coaching and development intervention or part of a wider leadership and management development programme.

What is the Emotional Quotient Inventory® – EQ-i® 2.0?

The Emotional Quotient Inventory – or EQ-i® – assessment tool was developed by Dr Reuven Bar-On, and is recognised as one of the most scientifically valid tools for measuring Emotional Intelligence. It is available in both self-assessment and 360-degree feedback forms. The EQ-i® is made up of 5 composite scales and 15 sub-scales:
