If you are an HR professional with a key objective of developing your staff through the use of valid and reliable development tools, then the emotional intelligence development approach could be the most appropriate for your teams. Emotional intelligence is particularly relevant in the workplace and a great way to evaluate and understand this is through the scientifically proven EQ-i 2.0 development tool. If staff have a clear understanding of themselves, their feelings and self expression as well as their interpersonal, decision making and stress management skills they can work more effectively and productively with their co-workers.

The EQ-i 2.0 is a scientifically tested and valid development tool. The process starts with a questionnaire that is followed by structured feedback on the results in the form of a detailed report by a trained coach who explains the results and provides the opportunity to discuss and plan actions for development. The discussion allows for awareness of specific areas for development and allows for the creation of specific objectives to address certain areas highlighted and allows for the development of strategies. The benefits of emotional intelligence to individuals and organisations are significant. By establishing objectives at the start of the process, it is possible to measure the results. We have examples and case-studies of companies that have significantly increased their ROI by understanding and working on personal development plans following the implementation of the EQ-i 2.0 emotional intelligence process. Having increased self-awareness and understanding which specific areas need attention enables the creation of actionable development plans for staff, which will ultimately benefit the individual, teams and the organisation.
