Emotional Intelligence – Bar-On-EQ-i 2.0

The EQ-i 2.0 (Emotional Quotient Inventory 2.0) ~ Emotional Intelligence (EI) has proven itself to be an excellent indicator of individual and group success in corporate environments. The EQ-i 2.0, based on the original work of Dr. Reuven BarOn, not only assesses emotional intelligence in individuals and groups, but also identifies specific strengths, weaknesses, and suggests strategies for improvement.

A growing body of research suggests that emotional intelligence is a key determinant of success in life. Based on over 30 years of research worldwide, the EQ-i 2.0 examines an individual’s emotional and social strengths and weaknesses. Whether you are looking to measure and develop critical job and leadership skills or build an outstanding corporate organization, the EQ-i 2.0 can help.

Emotional Intelligence (EI) has proven itself to be an excellent indicator of individual and group success in corporate environments. The EQ-i 2.0 not only assesses emotional intelligence in individuals and groups, but also identifies specific strengths, weaknesses, and other strategies for improvement.

The inventory consists of 133 statements that cover a wide range of emotional and social functioning. On a 5-point scale, individuals rate how frequent each statement applies to them. Along with scores for four validity indices, scores are provided for the following areas of emotional intelligence:

Self-Perception
Self-Expression
Interpersonal
Decision Making
Stress Management

Once the areas that need improvement have been identified, the client can immediately begin exploring and developing those areas. On-line learning modules are available. At the same time, areas where the client excels can be used to his or her full potential to maximize effectiveness in daily tasks.

A number of different reports are available for the EQ-i 2.0 to help interpret scores and communicate results to clients.

The Workplace Report provides, in a 21-page graphical format, the overall EQ score, scores for each of the 5 areas of EQ and then the 15 EQ competencies measured, and scores for the validity indices.

The Leadership Report, 27 pages, includes information available in the Workplace Report, presenting EQ results as they determine leadership effectiveness. In addition to in-depth explanations of the meaning of each score, descriptions of how individual strengths and weaknesses contribute to or detract from their effective leadership are provided, and guidelines for improving a client’s weaker areas.

A separate Coach’s Report is available for both the Workplace and Leadership Reports. This report contains all numerical scores, validity information, and other valuable insight into EQ-i 2.0 scores.

The Group Report provides an aggregate, anonymous summary of emotional intelligence results for a group of clients. This report is ideal for measuring the functioning of a team as a single unit.
