Why is Emotional Intelligence important?

While emotional intelligence is not 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. On the contrary, one’s emotional intelligence can change over time and can be developed in targeted areas.

Employee Development

Assessing and evaluating an individual’s emotional intelligence can help identify targeted development programs to increase performance, interpersonal relationships and leadership potential.  The development potentials the EQ-i 2.0 identifies, along with the targeted strategies it provides, make it a highly effective employee development tool.

Recruitment and Retention

The EQ-i 2.0 is versatile in workplace environment and can be used by employers via 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 processes 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.
