What impact does emotional intelligence have on people in the workplace?
The answer is simple: Emotional intelligence (EI) impacts everything. Your own EI, also known as EQ, affects every moment of your workday, from the relationships you have with your colleagues to how you respond to criticism. EI is a strong indicator of your individual performance and development potential. It is tied to your self-awareness, your social skills, and your capacity to feel empathy for others. While it is a part of who you are, your EI isn’t static—meaning it can be changed and developed.
Many managers are realizing that the key to building a thriving, successful team begins with understanding, fostering, and developing the EQ of their employees. Upward Solutions works with organizations to do this using a tool called the Emotional Quotient Inventory, or the EQ-i 2.0 assessment.
The EQ-i 2.0 defines EI as “a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.”
The Assessment Questions
The assessment questions measure the interaction between each of your employees and the environment he or she operates in, serving as a starting point for understanding and assessing that employee’s EI. Once you understand each employee’s EI, Upward Solutions can coach you in providing more targeted professional development—not only making your employees better and stronger, but making your organization better and stronger.
Assess your employees’ emotional intelligence. Predict their professional development needs. Watch them perform, grow, and realize their full potential as you also strengthen the resilience of your organization.
