Research indicates that Emotional Intelligence (EIQ) can be learned and can be seen as measurable differences directly associated with professional and personal success. Furthermore, it may be responsible for up to 80% of the success we experience in life. This assessment serves to heighten awareness of our own EIQ, identify relative strengths and weaknesses based on our emotional dispositions, and provide a framework for interpersonal and intrapersonal effectiveness.
Emotional Intelligence is all about understanding and managing yourself and also understanding and managing others. It is based on an internal loop that begins with awareness of our own emotions and temperament. It continues on through self-understanding and moves towards discipline and management of the self. It then repeats these steps by connecting to the emotions of others to build more effective relationships.
Emotional Intelligence is a way of recognizing, understanding, and choosing how we think, feel, respond, and act. It is based on two competencies, measured as Recognition and Management:
the ability to recognize, understand and manage emotions (self or intrapersonal)
the ability to recognize, empathize and relate appropriately to the emotions of others (social or interpersonal)
