Use the EQ-i 2.0 assessment to assess and develop your emotional intelligence skills



EQ-i 2.0 focuses on the impact of emotional intelligence in the workplace and offers strategies for working more effectively with direct reports, colleagues, supervisors, and clients.

As the first scientifically validated measure of emotional intelligence, the EQ-i 2.0 evaluates a set of emotional and social skills which influence the way people perceive and express themselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges and use emotional information in effective ways to increase their personal and business success.

The EQ-i 2.0 consists of 133 items and takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.

We recommend combining the EQ-i 2.0 with our emotional intelligence workshop and leadership coaching.
