Emotional Intelligence

What is Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and why does it matter?

Emotional intelligence 2.0 (EQ-i 2.0) 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
  • use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.

The result of well-developed emotional intelligence is healthy emotional and social functioning, which is linked to well-being (and happiness). This, in turn, impacts how we lead and perform. Assessing and evaluating an individual’s emotional intelligence can help establish the need for targeted development programs. Enhanced EQ can lead to dramatic increases in the person’s performance, interaction with others, and leadership potential.  Supplemented by other sources of information, such as interviews, the EQ-i 2.0 can make recruitment and selection more reliable and efficient. A sound recruiting process leads to higher retention rates and reduced turnover, resulting in significant cost savings, improved employee effectiveness and increased morale. Learn More →
