Our team of EQ-i certified practitioners offers in-depth assessments to help you develop and harness your emotional intelligence for professional growth and success.


Maximizing Effectiveness through Emotional Intelligence

Developing EQ is crucial in today's environment. High emotional intelligence is linked to effective communication, strong relationships, and coping strategies. Unlike IQ, emotional intelligence is measurable in a more accessible way and can be significantly developed. Employers increasingly recognize its value – with 71 percent prioritizing emotional intelligence over technical skills in hiring.

What is Emotional Intelligence

Defined as the ability to identify, understand and manage one's own emotions and as well as recognize and influence the emotions of those around you. Emotional intelligence was initially conceptualized by John Mayer and Peter Salovey and popularized by Daniel Goleman. Its importance, especially in leadership, is profound, as Goleman noted in Harvard Business Review , “The most effective leaders are all alike in one crucial way: They all have a high degree of what has come to be known as emotional intelligence. It’s not that IQ and technical skills are irrelevant. They do matter, but...they are the entry-level requirements for executive positions.”

Over the years, emotional intelligence, also known as EQ, has become an essential skill, pivotal to personal and professional success. Research suggests a significant part of our success, as much as 80%, can be attributed to EQ, with only 20% to IQ. This underscores the value of EQ as a skill that can be cultivated and developed.

Maya Angelou's words resonate deeply in this context: "I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel". This principle is at the heart of what EQ-i 2.0 aims to enhance – the ability to make meaningful and lasting emotional connections.
