EQ Assessment, Emotional Intelligence

What does the emotional intelligence report look like?

The EQ-i 2.0 report is a 19 page report that discusses five measures of emotional intelligence.

Under each of these five measures there are three “competencies” of an emotionally intelligent leader for a total of 15 competencies. Clients receive a numeric score on each of these competencies with a mean score of 100. These scores are the focus of the report and the follow-up feedback session.

What should I expect from the feedback session?

A feedback session normally lasts 90 minutes to 2 hours. The goals of the session are to help clients:

  • Become more emotionally self-aware
  • Understand how they are seen by others
  • Identify one thing they want to work on to be more effective leaders.

You don’t have to be a coaching client or member of one of Mike’s groups to do an EQ assessment.

Why is understanding EQ important to a leader?

While EQ isn’t the sole predictor of human performance and developmental 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. Daniel Goleman author of the world’s best selling book on EQ summarized its importance this way

“What really matters for success, character, happiness and life long achievements is a definite set of emotional skills – your EQ – not just purely cognitive abilities that are measured by conventional IQ tests.”

How is the EQ-i different from other assessments like Myers-Briggs, Hogan, Caliper or DISC?

All of these assessments are valuable; it’s rare to hear someone critical of the insight they offer. The value of the EQ-i is found in the scores on the 15 competencies. They help clients understand how they’re wired and how it influences their interactions with others. These fifteen competencies provide a lot of grist for the mill to help identify that one thing to work on to become a more effective leader.

What is the EQ 360 and how is it different from the EQ-i discussed above?

The 360 measures the same 15 competencies as the EQ-i 2.0. It compares one’s scores with how direct reports, peers and supervisors scored the subject.
