Used worldwide for nearly twenty years, the EQi was created by Dr. Rueven BarOn who coined the term EQ or Emotional Quotient. Multi-Health Systems extensively researched and revised the assessment to make it a premier tool for exploring emotional and social intelligence (ESI). We will provide you with a thorough exposure to working with the EQ-I, 2.0, and 360 supported by many case examples, videos, and tools for you to lead Emotional Intelligence (EI) training. (Click here to download our EQi Brochure.)
