"In the Long Run, EQ Trumps IQ": Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella Tells Students
What is Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional Intelligence (EI) can be defined as a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emo- tional information in an effective and meaningful way.
Why is EI Important?
While emotional intelligence isn’t the sole predictor of human performance and development potential, it is proven to be a key indicator in these areas. Emotional intelligence is not a static factor – to the contrary, one’s emotional intelligence changes over time and can be developed in targeted areas.

For almost 20 years, consultants and organisations have trusted the science that underpins the EQ-i 2.0® to help improve human performance. The EQ-i 2.0 is a psychometric assessment which measures emotional intelligence (EI) and how it can impact people and the workplace. Being the first scientifically validated measure of EI, coupled with research from premier organisations, means you can count on the EQ-i 2.0 to add robustness and accuracy to your development initiatives.

The 1-5-15 factor structure:
The EQ-i 2.0 features one overarching EI score (Total EI), broken down into five composite scores which measure five distinct aspects of emotional and social functioning. These in turn, are broken down into a total of 15 subscales.
Professional colour coding format representing each of the five composite scores, a clear layout, and straight-forward language making it easier for you to interpret results.
