Emotional Intelligence: Assessments and Applications

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 also not a static factor—to the contrary, one’s emotional intelligence can change over time and can be developed in targeted areas.


The EQ-i 2.0 is versatile in workplace environments and can be used by employers— via HR and OD consultants, psychologists, or EQ-i 2.0 certified professionals—as a screening tool in hiring, leading to the selection of emotionally intelligent, emotionally healthy, and the most likely successful employees. Supplemented by other sources of information, such as interviews, the EQ-i 2.0 can make the recruitment and selection process more reliable and efficient. A sound recruiting process leads to higher retention rates and reduced turnover which can result in significant cost savings, improved employee effectiveness and increased morale.

Leadership & Employee Development

Using scientifically validated psychometric assessments like EQ-i 2.0 and EQ360 can provide the basis for individually tailored leadership and employee development programs that precisely target those skills that require greater development while reinforcing existing strengths. Unlike many “one-size-fits all” development programs out there, those based on EQ-i2.0 and EQ360 have delivered proven ROI to organizations in a wide range of industries.
