The EQ-i 2.0 is a self-assessed report, measuring the interaction between a person and the environment that they operate in. When it comes to business, assessing and evaluating an employee’s emotional intelligence can help establish the need for targeted development. This method can lead to dramatic increases in the person’s performance, their interaction with colleagues as well as leadership potential. The development needs that the EQ-i 2.0 report identifies, along with the targeted strategies it provides, make it a highly effective employee development tool.
Emotionally intelligent people possess high levels of self-esteem and are comfortable in their own skin. They are genuine and authentic. Whilst they have the ability to adapt their behaviour, essentially they are always true to their real self. As a result they appear dynamic, enthusiastic and passionate. They listen to their intuition and communicate from their hearts as well as their heads.
How can you engage people by logic alone? People with developed emotional intelligence traits are more likely to have the edge they need to lead, manage, and perform in today’s competitive and complex marketplace. They are also adept at dealing with stress, low morale, conflict and change.
Because emotionally intelligent Leaders and Managers have fine-tuned their people skills, their teams will achieve high performance, they’re motivated and have high morale, which contributes to high engagement, staff loyalty, low absence and high retention.
