EQ-i 2.0 Emotional Quotient Inventory (Bar-On)
The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i) is the first scientifically validated and most widely used Emotional Intelligence assessment in the world. Based on more than 20 years of research worldwide, the EQ-i examines an individual’s social and emotional strengths and weaknesses.
What is Emotional Intelligence?
It 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 and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.
Why the EQ-i 2.0?
The EQ-i 2.0 measures emotional intelligence (EI) and how it can impact people in the workplace.Applications of emotional intelligence include:
- Leadership development
- Organisational Development
- Executive Coaching and
- Team Building
While emotional intelligence isn't the sole predictor of human performance and development potential, it is proven to be a key indicator in these areas. Emotional intelligence is not a static factor - on the contrary one's emotional intelligence changes over time and can be developed in target areas.
The EQ-i is the result of 17 years of Dr. Bar-On’s research on emotional intelligence. His research has crossed borders into eleven countries in an effort to develop a cross-cultural approach to describing and assessing emotional intelligence.
