Defining Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Emotional Quotient (EQ)
Emotional Intelligence, or EI, describes an ability or capacity to perceive, assess, and manage the emotions of one’s self, and of others. Our EQ, or Emotional Quotient, is how one measures Emotional Intelligence.
Emotions have the potential to get in the way of our most important business and personal relationships. According to John Kotter of Harvard Business School: “Because of the furious pace of change in business today, difficult to manage relationships sabotage more business than anything else – it is not a question of strategy that gets us into trouble; it is a question of emotions.”
Is EI Important to Leadership, Management and Performance?
Research tracking high performing individuals in a variety of industries and job levels revealed that emotional intelligence was two times more important in contributing to excellence than intellect and expertise alone.
Can Profitability be attributed to Emotional intelligence?
Not only does emotional intelligence greatly contribute to job performance and leadership skills, it has also been found to increase profits.
Can you increase your Emotional Intelligence and Emotional Quotient?
Most Definitely Yes!
Through our powerful workshop we create a platform for the participant to not only learn cognitively but also to experience how they approach challenges and create solutions, and actually understand how their EI
and EQ is either assisting or hindering them in creating the results they want.
People with high intrapersonal intelligence communicate with other people to increase their self-confidence, personal control, optimism, and self-esteem.
How EQ impacts an organisation.
It’s encouraging to realize that we are not destined by the intellectual capacity we’re born with. We can develop facets of intelligence that are actually more conducive to career success than the standard limited view of IQ that many of us grew up with. Plus, it’s useful to consider the varieties of interpersonal and intrapersonal abilities we need to develop in ourselves and promote in others in order to reach our potential. Indeed, managing our positive and negative emotions appropriately plays a major role in realizing our dreams.
Individuals improve their leadership capacities, build peak performing teams, and develop skills in their professional roles and enhance their personal lives when EQ is developed.
Can the participant communicate effectively with a variety of other people? This category looks at the participant’s ability to relate to others and to understand them accurately.
How does the participant approach getting along with others? We examine and explore the participant’s ability to interact with clients, customers, and co-workers on a daily basis.
What drives the participant? Different cognitive values cause the participant to have a different motivation. There are no “good” or “bad” drivers in this category, instead they are an indication of the degree of influence that each of the six human needs exert.
How aware is the participant of his or her own unique abilities, his or her limitations, and how confident is he or she in these? This category examines how the participant feels about himself, the ability he or she has to be objective and accurate in this assessment and how strongly he or she believes in what he or she sees inside himself.
This category takes a look at how the participant manages them and themselves capacities they possess to allow them to develop themselves. The participant will explore the 5 Levels of autonomy and how they relate to each level and the impact this has on their lives.
How does the Participant approach getting along with others? This measures the Participant’s ability to interact with clients, customers, and coworkers on a daily basis.

You have to unlearn in order to relearn. You have to become aware of why, what and how you are doing what you are doing in order really learn. Learning is not simply improving on what you already know. Learning is about generating some thing new it requires a new way of looking at things and expansion of your emotional quotient.
It is with the this in mind that the EQ for Organisational Success Workshop is structured. We create and run the workshop in a highly interactive way where the processors are not simply called experiential but are actually experienced in the domains of learning namely our language, emotions and physicality.
