Emotional Intelligence is a group of emotional capacities that make human relationships work effectively. These three foundational abilities are: The ability to be aware of one’s own one’s emotional in relationships. Having the ability to work with others in a highly effective manner results in individual, team, and organizational success.
Emotional Intelligence makes or breaks a team’s performance and a leader’s ability to effectively lead others during challenging times.
The EQ Profile measures the core capacities of Emotional Intelligence. These include:
- Self-Awareness— The ability to be aware of one’s own experience including what I am thinking, feeling, wanting in the moment when being challenged
- Self-Regulation— The ability to manage one’s own emotions and effectively manage one’s emotions in relationships
- Empathy — Both empathy accuracy, the ability to tune into others and accurately see what the other is experience, and empathy compassion, the ability to join the other in caring ways and the ability to stay emotionally connected with another, even when challenged
Learning In Action EQ Profile
Our emotional intelligence (EQ) also continues to develop and strengthen throughout our lives. When we are more aware of it and are intentional in its development, we have access to more choices. We also literally affect the transformation of our minds as new pathways are established and patterns change. As a result, we manage ourselves with more positive impact in our world.
The Learning In Action EQ Profile uses eight short video vignettes to give an internal 360 “snapshot” of a person’s emotional intelligence patterns. Instead of reporting what a person thinks they would do, the tool places individuals in real situations in which they are asked to report their real time experiences. The EQ Profile reports the real time data.
This robust instrument measures the three core emotional competencies
- Self-Reflection – the ability to be aware of one’s own experience
- Empathy – the ability to be aware of others experience
- Self-Regulation – the ability to effectively manage one’s self and one’s emotions in relationship.
It’s All About Relationship and Learning – Not a Report Card
Since it is not a self-reporting assessment, it does not measure the fourth emotional intelligence competence, social awareness. Its purpose is to open up a conversation with a certified coach in which individuals learn about their patterns, strengths, and weaknesses during stressful situations. Through learning more about what happens during their internal experiences, they can choose specific areas to strengthen so they impact how they show up in relationships.
- Awareness of the strengths and liabilities of your unique view of the world.
- Anticipation how your filters affect how you receive information.
- Make choices based on a balanced information from feelings, thoughts, and wants.
- Gain tools for increasing your empathy and compassion.
- See how trust of yourself and others impact relationship choices
