Emotional Intelligence Assessments (Individual and 360)
There are three scientific methods of measuring Emotional Intelligence: ability-based performance, self-ratings, and multi-perspective ratings of one’s EI potential. Xponents uses the EQ-i2.0 Self-Assessment and the Multi-Perspective EQ-360®.
Self-ratings of EI potential ask people how they would perform in a given situation. Unlike ability-based measures where people perform tasks to show their skills, respondents rate their own EI skill use. The assessments measure self-perception, self-expression, interpersonal, decision making, and stress management aspects of EI.
Multi-perspective ratings provide the broadest view on emotional intelligence. An individual’s emotional intelligence is rated by members of some or all of the following professional and personal associates: managers, peers, direct reports, clients, and family or friends.
The MBTI® tool is based on 50 years of research and is used to identify personality type. It can help you find your strengths, note possible blind spots, and improve your communications. We use the Myers-Briggs assessment tool as a stand alone assessment, as part of a coaching package or as a tool when working with teams. Knowing your type and that of others in your life can help you understand and appreciate differences in relationships with friends, family and co-workers.
