EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE TESTING
A manager’s emotional intelligence (EI) is the emotional thermostat of his team. And without a reliable thermostat, a team’s output will surely see more highs and lows than a roller coaster on a hot summer day in July. That’s why an emotional intelligence test is essential when identifying high potentials, developing Millennials and other future leaders, as well as selecting new leaders.
WHAT IS EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE?
While there are many descriptions of Emotional Intelligence, this one seems comprehensive but easy to understand:
“The ability to to identify and manage our own emotions and the emotions of others, and ultimately to reason and problem-solve on the basis of them.“
WHY SHOULD I TEST FOR IT?
Emotional Intelligence is a critical skill for any executive or manager that is making hundreds if not thousands of decisions each day. Becoming a better manager and leader begins with knowing yourself and assessing others quickly so your decisions can be better. The faster and more capably you can assess and adjust in this complex and fast-changing environment, the more successful you will be.
