EQ-i 2.0 Leadership Assessment
Truly effective leaders are often characterised as having a high degree of emotional intelligence or EQ which includes soft skills such as self-awareness, self-expression, stress management, interpersonal skills, and decision making. According to Daniel Goleman (2002), a leading influencer in the field of EI “70% of employees perception of the organizational climate is associated with the emotional intelligence of the leader”.
A leader with a high degree of emotional intelligence tends to be empathetic, communicates effectively, responds well to change, and has the ability to inspire others. The good news is that EQ is a skill that can be improved over time (unlike IQ which remains fixed once we enter adulthood). An EQI assessment is a valuable development tool for anyone in a leadership role. The EQ-i 2.0 self-assessment helps leaders to determine which elements of emotional intelligence they have mastered and to select items from the results that they may need to strengthen.
How does the EQ-i 2.0 Assessment Work?
The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0) is the world’s leading assessment tool used for assessing emotional intelligence. The EQ-i 2.0 also offers a specific assessment for leaders which allows them to explore and develop specific competencies that are associated with top-line leaders throughout the world. The EQ-i 2.0 provides clients with a detailed analysis of how they operate emotionally, how they interact with others and identifies areas of strength and potential areas for development.
How long will it take?
The EQ-i 2.0 assessment is delivered online and typically takes about twenty minutes to complete. Once completed the EQ-i report will be generated and clients will receive comprehensive and confidential feedback on the results. A typical feedback session will take 60 – 90 minutes.
