Boosting Your Emotional Intelligence
EQiAlive™ - The Other Kind Of Smart
Emotional Intelligence (EI, EQ or EQi) is your ability to perceive and understand emotions in yourself and other people, and your ability to use this awareness to manage your behavior and relationships with others. Emotional Intelligence is one of the most essential skills we possess. EQ shows up each day in what we do, what we say and how we interact and relate with others. The good news is EQ is a set of learned skills and behaviors and can be improved through awareness, training and practicing new strategies.
EQ Is More Important Than IQ
Research indicates that approximately 90% of all top professionals have high Emotional Intelligence. EQ is shown to be more critical for job performance than IQ, experience, or technical aptitude for any job at any level in an organization. Studies across industry sectors show that EQ is the strongest indicator to predict superior job performance and leadership ability over any other competency.
Today, more than ever, in the technology savvy workplace, people who possess strong “soft skills” or “people skills” will continue to be a stand-out asset in any organization. These emotionally intelligent people help create team cohesiveness and collaboration among their colleagues.
Emotional Intelligence Model: EQiAlive™
Emotional Intelligence was first introduced in the 1980s and was made popular in the 1990s by Daniel Goleman. Since then several different EQ models have emerged and are in use. The EQiAlive™ model is a research-based, reliable measure of emotional and social intelligence that blends the best of the three most famous EQ and EI models in use today into one, complete, all-encompassing The EQiAlive™ model.
The 4 Core Emotional Intelligence Themes
Like four pieces of a puzzle, all four Emotional Intelligence themes are interconnected with each other and create a whole picture when put together. The four areas are: (1) Self-Awareness, (2) Self-Management, (3) Social-Awareness and (4) Social-Management. These measure competencies around multiple meta-factors that affect day-to-day work functions and leadership effectiveness.
