Emotional Intelligence Assessment for Leaders

Emotional intelligence is often misunderstood and overcomplicated.

What is emotional intelligence?

Foundationally speaking, emotional intelligence is:

  • The ability to recognize, understand and manage your emotions.
  • The ability to recognize, empathize and manage emotions in others.
  • The ability to use this information in a way that results in more positive outcomes.

Research shows that leaders with empathy perform over 40% higher in employee engagement, decision-making, and coaching. Catalyst surveyed more than 900 in the US and across industries. They found employees with highly empathic senior leaders report higher levels of creativity (61%) and engagement (76%) than those with less empathic senior leaders (13% and 32%, respectively).

How do your leaders measure up in emotional intelligence? What are their strengths and opportunities?

Our emotional intelligence assessment measures eighteen leadership competencies.
