The EQ-i 2.0® is one of the first scientifically validated and widely used Emotional Intelligence tools in the world. Based on more than 20 years of research worldwide, the EQ-i 2.0 examines an individual’s social and emotional strengths and weaknesses.
The tool uncovers life and workplace performance in 15 key areas of emotional skill that have been proven to contribute to proficiency in complex business activities such as conflict resolution and planning.
Emotional Intelligence is “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.”
While emotional intelligence isn’t the sole predictor of human performance and development potential, it is proven to be a key indicator in these areas. In fact, a study by the Center for Creative Leadership found that eight emotional intelligence subscales (among them self-awareness, stress tolerance and empathy), could predict high leadership performance 80% of the time.
The EQ-i 2.0 provides a rich opportunity for exploring well-supported insights, both as a self-reflective tool and a multi-rater 360 tool. Reports are available for both individuals and groups to provide different lenses into emotional and social dynamics.
