EQi 2.0 & EQ360 (Emotional Quotient Inventory)

The EQ-i assessment is a widely used tool for measuring emotional intelligence. It assesses an individual’s emotional and social competencies, providing insights into their emotional intelligence (EQ) levels. Here are some benefits of using an EQ-i assessment:

The assessment helps individuals gain a better understanding of their emotions, strengths, and areas for improvement. By increasing self-awareness, individuals can better manage their emotions and reactions in various situations.

EQ-i assessments focus on social skills and empathy, enabling individuals to develop better communication, conflict resolution, and relationship-building abilities. This can lead to healthier and more productive personal and professional relationships.

Emotional intelligence plays a vital role in decision-making. By understanding their emotional responses and biases, individuals can make more rational and effective decisions, especially in high-pressure or emotionally charged situations.

High EQ individuals tend to handle stress better and are more resilient. EQ-i assessments can identify areas where individuals may struggle with stress and provide strategies for coping and managing emotions effectively.

Emotional intelligence is a crucial component of effective leadership. Leaders with higher EQ are often more successful in motivating and inspiring their teams, resolving conflicts, and creating a positive work environment.

The assessment encourages individuals to be more empathetic and understanding of others’ emotions and perspectives. This can lead to more compassionate and cooperative interactions within teams and organizations.

Understanding emotions and communication styles can help individuals navigate conflicts more constructively, leading to healthier resolutions and fostering a positive work culture.

By identifying areas for improvement, individuals can work on developing their emotional intelligence over time, leading to personal growth and a better overall quality of life.

EQ-i assessments can be useful in creating well-balanced teams where members complement each other’s emotional strengths and weaknesses. This can lead to improved collaboration and productivity within the team.

Studies have shown that individuals with higher emotional intelligence tend to perform better at work, exhibit stronger leadership skills, and have higher job satisfaction.

Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness (DiSC)

The DiSC assessment is a popular behavioral profiling tool used in various personal and professional settings. It stands for Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness, and it helps individuals gain insights into their behavioral preferences and communication styles. Here are some of the benefits of using the DiSC assessment:

The DiSC assessment provides individuals with a clearer understanding of their own behavioral tendencies, strengths, and areas for development. This heightened self-awareness can lead to improved self-management and more effective communication.

By understanding their own DiSC profile and the profiles of others, individuals can adapt their communication styles to interact more effectively with different personality types. This can lead to better interpersonal relationships and reduced conflicts.

The DiSC assessment can be instrumental in team building activities. When team members understand each other’s DiSC profiles, they can appreciate and leverage each other’s strengths, resulting in a more cohesive and productive team.

Armed with knowledge about different behavioral styles, individuals can navigate conflicts more effectively by recognizing potential sources of tension and finding constructive ways to resolve issues.

DiSC assessments are useful for leadership development programs. Leaders who understand their own DiSC profiles and those of their team members can tailor their leadership approach to suit individual preferences and bring out the best in their team.

The insights gained from a DiSC assessment can help individuals align their career choices with their natural strengths and preferences. It can guide them toward roles and environments that are better suited to their behavioral style.

Recognizing how one’s DiSC profile may respond to stress can assist individuals in managing stressful situations more effectively and implementing coping strategies.

For professionals in sales or customer service roles, understanding DiSC profiles can improve interactions with clients and customers, as they can adjust their communication style to better connect with the needs and preferences of each individual.

When individuals work more effectively with others and understand how to adapt their behaviors to different situations, workplace productivity tends to increase, leading to better outcomes for the organization.

Access to assessments is electronically via email.  All assessments require a coach debrief to support the client’s understanding of their individual report(s) and to discuss a coaching program to support the strengthening of competencies.
