Leaders drive engagement, engagement drives productivity and Emotional Intelligence drives leadership. Today, Cathy and Relly give some of the latest updates about Emotional Intelligence (EI) research and the new Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQi 2.0) assessment.
Dr. Relly Nadler: First, the definition: “what is emotional intelligence?” Well, it’s 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 new 2.0 has new norms, 5,000 adults from both the US and Canada were normed, but what is interesting is that they have 200 men and women in all the different age groups; race, ethnicity, educational level, geographic regions and all are within 4% of the census targets. There are a couple of changes in the 2.0; some of the different names that we are going to go through that they have relabeled. You have:
- Decision Making.
- Stress Management.
Overall you have this well-being. It’s basically normed like an IQ test which 100 +/- 15. EQ, for the EQi is 100 +/- 15 points. What’s really interesting is all the evidence based research and scientific data that is behind it.
Dr. Cathy Greenberg: How organizations can grow more intellectually and emotionally intelligent is through improving their personal leadership engagement and their teams engagement. We are going to focus on that today and hopefully increase everybody’s set point for happiness and optimism.
One of the things that most of our listeners hear often over and over again, is that it is not enough to say that something will work, what you need to bring to the table is evidence of clear return on investment. That includes clear statistics and research that link to the EQi and that is what we have to offer you as well. We have data that shares higher sales and profits, we have data that shows increased performance, improved customer satisfaction, decreased attrition rates and reduction in training costs while you are improving the individuals capacity to do their job more effectively. What we want is for you to hear the right level of information from the stories of companies that have shared their case studies with MHS, who is the creator of the EQi 2.0, and for those of you who are interested, excited, motivated by what emotional intelligence has to offer, Relly and I right now are very focused on the 2.0.
There are profiles that you can get for your own organization depending on these competencies.
