Emotional intelligence or EQ which includes skills such as self-awareness, self-expression, stress management, interpersonal skills, and decision making. Increasing your EQ awareness is guaranteed to enhance an employees professional development programme. Similar to the EQ-i 2.0 the EQ 360 measures the same EQ competencies.
It is a confidential self-report assessment combined with feedback from the people that you work with. The EQ 360 is also known as a Multi-Rater Assessment because it combines the employees own perceptions of their EQ with the perceptions of others who know them well and who are 360 degrees around them.
An employee who understands the importance of EQ will demonstrate a high degree of soft skills and will tend to be empathetic, have great communication skills and will respond well to workplace stress and unexpected change. 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 who is invested in professional development. The EQ-i 360 self and rater assessment helps individuals and teams to explore which elements of emotional intelligence they have mastered and to identify items from the results that they may need to strengthen
