Emotional Intelligence Assessments

Everyone has emotions. It‘s a simple fact - a part of our being human. And whether we realize it or not, these emotions impact us every day. They also impact those around us, both in the workplace and in our personal lives.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional Intelligence (EI) or emotional quotient (EQ) is a set of skills that help us better perceive, understand and manage emotions in ourselves and others. Collectively they help us make intelligent responses to, and use of, emotions. These skills are as critical as your intellect (IQ) in determining success in work and life. Everyone, no matter what job function, has interactions with other people. Your capacity to understand your emotions, to be aware of them and how they impact the way you behave and relate to others, will improve your ‘people‘ skills and help you ultimately be more satisfied and successful.

Who wouldn’t want a higher level of emotional intelligence? Studies have shown that high levels of emotional intelligence boost career success, mental health, relationship satisfaction, humor, and happiness. Higher levels of Emotionally Intelligent Workplace Behaviour are also the best antidote to work stress and building your personal resilience. Learn how you can improve your emotional intelligence and how best to go about it.
