“There are countless definitions of emotional intelligence, but most agree that it involves perceiving, understanding, and regulating emotions. Emotional intelligence (EI) is also about the ability to reason and problem-solve, based on the emotions we experience. In other words, an emotionally intelligent person is aware of emotions in themselves and others, and uses reason to identify, understand, and deal with the emotions effectively.” ~ Manuela Herberle, LPC, New Mexico State University
Believing that emotional intelligence has a significant impact on our relationships and overall happiness are 2 of the reasons Emotional Intelligence assessments are offered. The information gained from the assessment provides a framework to identify specific behaviors and responses that may be interfering with life satisfaction.
The specific assessment tools offered are from Multi Health Systems and the work of Dr. Reuven Bar-On.
While the EQ-i 2.0® identifies the level of a person’s emotional and social functioning based on his or her responses, and can be a stand-alone assessment, the EQ 360 assessment provides a more in-depth analysis by including feedback from others as well. When this feedback is compared with the results of an EQ-i 2.0 self-report, a more complete 360 degree profile emerges. The EQ 360 identifies key strengths that can be leveraged to the benefit of the individual or organization, as well as opportunities to improve performance and relationships.
