Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0®)

Based on twenty years of research and tested on more than one million individuals worldwide, the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0®) is a new and validated measure of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence reflects one’s ability to accurately interpret and respond to societal social cues and to be aware of, and regulate, one’s own emotions. A growing body of research suggests that emotional intelligence, measured by Emotional Quotient (EQ), is a better predictor of “success” than the more traditional measures of cognitive intelligence (IQ).

Applications of the EQ-i 2.0®

Research indicates that there is a strong correlation between emotional intelligence and job performance. Skills associated with emotional intelligence develop throughout life and can be improved through training and coaching, making the EQ-i 2.0® a valuable instrument for identifying potential areas for improvement and for measuring the effectiveness of organizational development programs.
The EQ-I 2.0® is used in various settings and situations including:  

  • Leadership development
  • Team building
  • Staff training and development
  • Employee selection and/or development
  • Assessment of potential for success

What Does the EQ-i 2.0® Measure?

The EQ-i 2.0® measures 15 distinct aspects of emotional and social functioning within five major areas as are shown in the diagram below:

The EQ-360 assesses emotional intelligence from a multi-rater perspective. Individuals who work with the leader on a regular basis, including direct reports, peers and their manager(s), complete the survey. With the EQ-360, observer ratings are compared with the results of a standard Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0) self-assessment that has been completed by the individual of focus. A more complete 360-degree profile emerges in which external impressions of a person's EQ are combined with that person's self-rating.

EQ-360 is ideal for use in corporate environments where developing successful human interaction in leadership, teams and the entire organization is crucial. EQ-360 identifies key employee strengths and identifies impediments to high performance and factors that could be improved or further developed. The assessment process can also be used as a developmental strategy in EQ "skill enhancement," and where reassessment is used to measure progress. The strength of EQ-360 lies mainly in its ability to improve the connections between individuals and their peers, subordinates and superiors to enhance performance in the entire organization.

Change Management Certification

Sixty to Seventy percent of change projects do not deliver the anticipated results primarily because change leaders ignore the needs of the people who are implementing the change.  With Prosci’s model, and over a decade of experience, Greg helps clients increase the ROI of change efforts.  With multiple assessments to assess the risks of the change, and the readiness of the organization, Prosci’s tools are research-based and effective in getting employees to adopt changes faster with more proficiency. In addition to assessing risk, Prosci’s process includes plans to manage communication, resistance, training and coaching needs, and stakeholder participation.  If you struggle with employees resisting change, we can help. For more about our change management services click here

Hi Greg:

Thank you very much for all you have done. We’ve had a tremendous amount of positive feedback about your visit. Many of the staff have told us that they were initially concerned about the training, not sure what to expect. Everyone has said they enjoyed the training and learned a great deal from you. The office environment has definitely been much more relaxed and at ease since that day. I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate all you did. Thank you so much.

All the Best,
Amy Wieland-Carlson
