EQi 2.0®
Leading Emotional Intelligence Assessment

Used by over one million individuals worldwide, the EQ-i 2.0® (developed by Reuven BarOn, Ph.D) is the leading scientifically developed and validated measure of emotional intelligence. It measures your ability to deal with daily environmental pressures and demands. Increasingly, research points to emotional intelligence as a better predictor of success in life than cognitive intelligence (IQ). Coaching support includes developing an action plan to leverage your EQ strengths and selected areas for growth.

EQi 360®
Multi Rater Instrument for Emotional Intelligence

The EQ 360® is a statistically valid and reliable multi-rater report which probes deeper than the self report found in the EQi, allowing those working closely with the client to provide information as well. It highlights key employee strengths and impediments to high performance, along with areas that could be developed further. It is a great tool for coaching and can be used to follow up and measure progress over time.
The EQ 360® gives the individual an EQi report that identifies emotional and social functioning based on his or her responses. It then compares that to the results from the others he or she requests to provide feedback by rater category. The client may choose raters for any of six rater groups – managers, peers, direct reports, clients, and family/friends. The client's results are compared to each group and to the raters as a whole.
