GlobeWhat is Emotional Intelligence? It is the ability to recognize and understand emotions and develop the skills to use them in managing yourself and your relationships.

Dr. Reuven BarOn has created two instruments to help you identify your own EQ: a self report (EQi), and a tool utilizing the feedback from your supervisor,peers and reports (EQ360).

Both instruments examine 15 different aspects built around 5 major themes. You will follow a four-step process in sharpening you EQ through these tools:

1.    Become aware of your own emotional practices and patterns.

2.    Learn to recognize and manage your own emotions productively.

3.    Recognize and understand emotional responses of others.

4.    Sharpen your ability to successfully manage interactions.                                    

Over 80,000 managers and leaders have found that EQ makes an enormous difference. In fact, your results will be compared with the results of thousands of other leaders and managers like yourself, giving you real-life feedback.
It can make a difference for you like it did for the Air Force. The US Air Force used emotional intelligence to select recruiters, increasing their ability to predict success by three-fold, and in the process gained a savings of $3 million annually.  (BarOn in Druskat, et al., Linking Emotional Intelligence and Performance at Work, 2006.)
