Emotional Intelligence Assessments
Are you technically competent yet often criticized for your lack of people skills? Do you have difficulty persuading others to see your perspective? Are you prone to frequent workplace conflicts?
People often get promoted because of their IQ but then discover that leadership success has less to do with technical competence and more to do with people skills.
“Success in business today is 15% technology and 85% emotional intelligence.”
(Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence)
Three primary causes of leadership failure are:
- Difficulty handling change
- Lack of teamwork skills
- Poor interpersonal relations
(David Cory, The Emotional Intelligence Training Company Inc.)
“…90% of top performers are also high in emotional intelligence. On the flip side, just 20% of bottom performers are high in emotional intelligence. You can be a top performer without emotional intelligence, but the chances are slim.”
Every one of your employees, colleagues and supervisors are humans and 100% of those human beings have emotions that affect EVERYTHING they do. When it comes to leading people, it is impossible to “take the emotion out of it”. The first step to improving anything is to know where you a starting by taking an accurate measurement.

“The new smart will be determined not by what or how you know but by the quality of your thinking, listening, relating, collaborating, and learning.”
