Emotional intelligence assessment

Emotional intelligence skills are critical for building relationships and teams, resolving conflict, solving problems, leading effectively and building resilience. The EQ-i 2.0 provides you with a detailed assessment of your areas of strength and potential areas for development. You will receive a comprehensive report describing how your EQ competencies work together for effectiveness. It also provides suggested strategies for bringing your EQ competencies into balance for greater effectiveness.

The EQ-i 2.0 assessment is administered online, using a secure site. You will respond to 133 statements related to emotional intelligence skills, which takes approximately twenty minutes to complete.

Once you’ve completed your EQ inventory, the person who invited you to take the EQ-i 2.0 will create your report for you. There are two main report types.

The Workplace Report puts the emphasis on your workplace performance and the Leadership Report focuses on your leadership effectiveness, each in the context of emotional intelligence. Your comprehensive report provides you with your overall results, and presents these using the five EQ composite areas: Self-Perception, Self-Expression, Interpersonal, Decision Making and Stress Management. The report also provides a detailed interpretation of how effectively you are using the 15 EQ competencies and how, by balancing these competencies, you can significantly improve your well-being, workplace and leadership performance, interpersonal relationships and communication.

The reports you receive provide a detailed analysis of your results. You can view a variety of sample reports.
