Emotional Intelligence

Emotionally intelligent people have self-awareness, are excellent communicators and can adapt their behaviour to a variety of situations.

The Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue – pronounced TQ) was developed by K. V. Petrides PhD. It is one of the world’s best-researched psychometric instruments, supported by the internationally renowned London Psychometric Laboratory based at University College London (UCL).

Emotionally intelligent people have self-awareness, are excellent communicators and can adapt their behaviour to a variety of situations.

As a result, they are more likely to have the edge they need to lead, manage, and perform in today’s competitive and complex marketplace.

They are also adept at dealing with stress, low morale, conflict and change. Because emotionally intelligent managers have honed people management skills, their teams tend to perform well, they’re more motivated and have high morale, which contributes to staff loyalty and retention

The TEIQue tells you how well you understand and manage your emotions, how well you interpret and deal with the emotions of others, and how you can use this knowledge to manage relationships. It will help you identify how to thrive in a dynamic, changing environment and can also identify the areas you may wish to develop going forward.

The assessment provides a report on the following:

  • How aware are you of your strengths and limitations?
  • To what level do you modify your behaviour to suit changing situations?
  • How do you react to pressure?
  • Can you control your impulses when under stress?
  • How sensitive are you to other people’s emotions?
  • Do you excel at developing relationships?
  • How self-motivated and adaptable are you?

You can use the TEIQue to improve communication and personal engagement, develop a more motivated workforce, and generate higher productivity.
