Emotional Intelligence for Leaders

The EQ Leader: Emotional Intelligence at the Heart of Performance is a comprehensive package of services that explores the key tools for improving the people-side of leadership. Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the foundation for highly effective workplace relationships – a key component in building trust, influence and engagement. Emotionally intelligent leaders create higher productivity, better customer service, greater sales and longer employee retention. EQ has also been proven to have a significant impact on health, relationship quality and overall quality of life.

The first step is to complete the Six Seconds Emotional Intelligence Assessment (SEI) online.

The SEI is a validated, normative self-report tool with 104 items, self-correcting indices for positive impression and answer style, and a consistency index for validity.
