Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence Assessment

The MIT Center for Collective Intelligence reports that groups with the greatest Social Perceptiveness have been found to have the highest collective intelligence. This empowers them to make better decisions that lead to the best overall performance.   Social perceptiveness can be described as having an understanding of other’s verbal and non verbal behavior and actions. This can include the ability to interpret a combination of what others are saying as well as their tone of voice, body language, gestures and facial expressions. Being socially perceptive is important in all social settings, including the workplace. Similar terms include social intelligence and interpersonal intelligence.
The EQ-i 2.0 is a highly regarded instrument in the industry that has been scientifically validated and proven to be an accurate assessment of both individual and group emotional and social functioning. It has been used by all branches of the US military since the 1990’s. This instrument was updated and further refined in 2011, making it the most up-to-date scientifically proven instrument on the market.

The EQ-i 2.0 Assessment reports 22 separate scores to provide the utmost clarity in your results empowering you to focus on those areas that will provide the greatest return for your effort.  Participants will receive an overall emotional intelligence score, a well-being or happiness score, a score for each of the five main categories and a separate score for each of the 15 sub-scales as outlined below:

  • Decision Making
    • Problem Solving – The ability to find solutions to problems in situations where emotions are involved.  It includes the ability to understand how emotions impact decision making.
    • Reality Testing – The capacity to remain objective by seeing things as they really are.  It involves recognizing when emotions or personal bias can cause us to be less objective.
    • Impulse Control – The ability to resist or delay an impulse, drive or temptation to act and involves avoiding rash behaviors in decision making.
  • Stress Management
    • Flexibility – Adapting emotions, thoughts and behaviors to unfamiliar, unpredictable, and dynamic circumstances or ideas.
    • Stress Tolerance – Involves coping with stressful or difficult situation and believing that one can manage or influence situations in a positive manner.

    • Interpersonal Relationships – The skill of developing and maintaining mutually satisfying relationships that are characterized by trust and compassion.
    • Empathy – Recognizing, understanding, and appreciating how other people feel.  Empathy involves being able to articulate your understanding of another’s perspective and behaving in a way that respects others’ feelings.

    • Assertiveness – Involves communicating feelings, beliefs and thoughts openly, and defending personal rights and values in a socially acceptable, non-offensive, and non-destructive manner.

The best leaders aren’t just born that way, they work at it in much the same way as an Olympic athlete.  Continuously, honing their skills and stretching beyond their comfort zone to be their best every single day.  In order to be their best, they ask for and routinely receive feedback.

The EQ-i 2.0 Leadership report is set at a higher standard than the Workplace report.  It provides a snapshot of how your Emotional Intelligence skills compare to other leaders.  It offers leadership development insight tailored to your assessment results.

It provides the five composite scores plus each subscale, an overall Emotional Intelligence score, your Well-Being Indicator or Happiness score, and the Leadership Bar.  The gold Leadership Bar represents the range of scores of the top leaders.  Top Leaders were deemed those whose EQ-i 2.0 scores were in the top 50% of the leader sample.  Using the gold Leadership Bar enables you to compare your results to those exceptional leaders who demonstrate high emotional intelligence.

You will receive a 27 page report loaded with valuable information that you can use as the foundation for your leadership development efforts.  To be clear, since we are all human, by definition, we cannot be perfect and therefore are in constant need of growth and development. The good news is that we can all improve our emotional intelligence skills, regardless of our age.  We just need to be willing and dedicated to the effort.

The images below (and on the other tabs in this section) are intended to show you how straight forward and easy it is to read and use the report.  There is so much information in it that you will want to refer to it repeatedly while working towards your leadership development goals .  As you learn and grow different aspects of the report will have new meaning to you over time.   Leaders serious about enhancing their skills can expect to have different ah-ha moments each time they review their report.
