Inside The EQ-i 2.0

This comprehensive assessment examines the following Emotional Intelligence competencies:

EQ-i 2.0 Model – Five Key Areas With 15 Scales Of Measurement

The 1- 5 – 15 factor structure of the EQ-i 2.0 model features one overarching EI score (Total EI), broken down into five composite scores, which, in turn, are broken down into a total of 15 subscales.

The Bar On EQ-i 2.0 Assessment Instrument measures the client’s level of functioning in the areas of:

  • Emotional Self Awareness
  • Self Actualization
  • Self Regard
  • Independence
  • Assertiveness
  • Emotional Expression
  • Social Responsibility
  • Empathy
  • Interpersonal Relationships
  • Optimism
  • Stress Tolerance
  • Flexibility
  • Impulse Control
  • Reality Testing
  • Problem Solving

The scales on the EQ-i 2.0 are interrelated, meaning that a deficit in one area can indicate and lead to a deficit in other areas, and the strengthening of one area, will lead to the strengthening of other areas.

Choosing Your Assessment Report – Workplace Report vs. Leadership Report

We offer clients two ways to interpret and analyze your scores.  We can present your scores to you in two different ways.

The Workplace Report focuses on the impact of emotional intelligence on coworkers, supervisors, and clients, which can be used to develop current employees, or in evaluating the strength of prospective employees.

The Leadership Report evaluates an individuals strengths and weaknesses in emotional intelligence that correlate with leadership performance.  This report can help answer questions like:  How will this individual manage a conflict, come up with creative solutions, or lead a multigenerational staff?

The Workplace Report

The Workplace Report is designed for use in a wide variety of coaching and development situations and work settings. It focuses on the impact of emotional intelligence at work and offers suggestions for working with colleagues, supervisors, and clients. In recruiting, this report is useful when using scores to guide the selection of follow-up interview questions, and in identifying potential training and development needs.

When you generate a Workplace Report, you will receive two PDFs (Client and Coach sections; see Table 5.1). The administrator retains the Coach section for interpretation.

The Leadership Report

The Leadership Report provides an in-depth look at EI strengths and weaknesses through the lens of leadership. It does this by correlating emotional intelligence subscales with leadership performance in four key dimensions: Authenticity, Coaching, Insight, and Innovation. These leadership dimensions were identified from research conducted on 221 leaders who took the EQ-i 2.0 and who also responded to a leadership assessment.

The Leadership Report contains the same EQ-i 2.0 Total, Composite, Subscale, and Validity Indicator scores as the Workplace report. The Leadership Report also contains the following features:

  • · Subscale pages with an interpretation of the client’s leadership and organizational impact.
  • · An Executive Summary page that showcases the client’s three highest and three lowest scoring EI skills.
  • · A Leadership Potential page.
  • · A Leadership Derailer section.
  • · A Leadership Bar that highlights how the client’s scores fare in comparison to other leaders.

Current Leadership Topics on managing conflict, achieving a work-life balance, and leading a multigenerational team.
