What is Emotional Intelligence and Why is it Important?
WHAT IS EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE?
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
This definition is applied in the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0) based on work of Dr. Reuven Bar-On and licensed by Multi-Health Systems.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
According to the World Economic Forum’s 2016 “The Future of Jobs” Report, emotional intelligence will be one of the top 10 job skills in 2020.
Emotional intelligence (EI) is a key indicator of performance and leadership potential. In fact, many studies show that leaders have significantly higher EI than the general population.
The good news is that emotional intelligence is not static; it can be developed over time.

Begin your journey with us
Your development journey begins with the EQ-i 2.0 – a psychometric assessment tool measuring emotional intelligence (EI) and how it impacts people and the workplace. It is the first scientifically-validated tool to measure emotional intelligence.
The EQ-i 2.0 assessment features one overarching EI score (Total EI), broken down into five composite scores which measure five distinct aspects of emotional and social functioning as shown on the Bar-On model. These in turn, are broken down into a total of 15 emotional and social skills. The assessment is completed online and results are provided in a 20-page confidential report including strategies you can use in the workplace.

Workshops are customized for the organization and can be delivered on–site. They are designed with the following learning objectives:
