Emotional Quotient

The Emotional Quotient™ (EQ) report looks at a person's emotional intelligence, which is the ability to sense, understand and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions to facilitate higher levels of collaboration and productivity. The report was designed to provide insight into two broad areas: Self and Others.

Research shows that successful leaders and superior performers have well-developed emotional intelligence skills. This makes it possible for them to work well with a wide variety of people and to respond effectively to the rapidly changing conditions in the business world. In fact, a person's EQ may be a better predictor of success performance than intelligence (IQ). Emotional intelligence is an area that a participant can focus on and develop regardless of your current score in each dimension. One model to help assess one’s emotional levels throughout the day is to check your emotional clarity.

Why Emotional Intelligence Matters:

Identify how well your client’s employees manage emotions and impact relationships with others. They will be utilizing the Emotional Quotient (EQ) report which assesses five areas of emotional intelligence such as self and social regulation.

EQ is an assessment tool that can help you sense, understand and effectively apply the power of emotions to facilitate higher levels of collaboration and productivity. You can enable your clients’ employees to manage emotions effectively using the EQ assessment to work better together.

Your Peers Use EQ To:

  • Build strong relationships by revealing insights of emotional self and social regulation
  • Navigate organizational change by bringing sense, understanding of emotions
  • Empower leaders of today and discover leaders of tomorrow
  • Reduce team conflicts and improve productivity

EQ is a great match to DISC as it gives lots of insights to what to expect from the different behavioral styles in different situations.
