Transforming Leaders, Organizations and Communities

Emotional Intelligence

Daniel Goleman first brought the term “emotional intelligence” to a wide audience with his 1995 book. Goleman was also the first to apply the concept to leadership. In his research at nearly 200 large, global companies, Goleman found that while the qualities traditionally associated with leadership—such as intelligence, toughness, determination, and vision—are required for success, they are insufficient. Truly effective leaders are also distinguished by a high degree of emotional intelligence, which includes self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional Intelligence refers to our capacity to recognize and work with our own emotions or feelings and the emotions and feelings of others. Emotional Intelligence is a key factor in determining our ability to succeed in life. Research has shown that Emotional Intelligence is two times more important in contributing to excellence than intellect and expertise alone. The welcome news is that Emotional Intelligence can be measured and can be developed and improved with training and coaching.

  • An individuals Emotional Intelligence is measured using the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQi 2.0®) which is the first scientifically developed and validated measure of emotional intelligence.
  • Team Emotional Intelligence is measured using TESI® which is the Emotional and Social Intelligence Survey™. developed by Collaborative Growth. More information can be found at the Collaborative Growth web site.

How Can Taking an Emotional Intelligence Assessment Benefit Leaders?

One of the major missing parts in the success leadership equation is emotional intelligence, Taking a personal emotional intelligence assessment can help you learn the importance of emotional intelligence and how it applies to all areas of your life. We use the assessment results to identify and practice ways to develop and increase your personal emotional intelligence.

How Can Taking an Emotional Intelligence Assessment Benefit Your Team?

Teams are the source of most of the productivity, creativity and reliability in organizations. Understanding and developing the behaviors of success requires that team members develop and utilize the emotional and social intelligence skills measured by the TESI® Developing and utilizing these skills results in increased Trust, Empathy, Loyalty and Better decision making in the team, the lasting benefit is sustainable productivity and Emotional and Social well being for your team.
