Assessing Your Leadership

A variety of world-clas tools to optimize your leadership potential

Are you using the right assessment tools in your employee and executive selection process? Some studies indicate that “turnover costs for a manager average 150% of salary, including real costs of hiring… and intangible costs such as the new worker’s inefficiency and lost productivity while the job is vacant.”

Psychometric testing can measure a number of attributes including intelligence, critical reasoning, motivation and personality profile. An interview process can be fairly subjective and although employers will normally assess skills and experience fairly accurately, much can still be left to gut instinct regarding aligned values.

A psychometric test aims to provide measurable, objective data that can give you a better all-round view of a candidate’s suitability. It could be argued that psychometric testing offers some ‘scientific’ credibility and objectivity to the process of recruiting. It perhaps provides a more fair and accurate way of assessing a candidate, as all applicants will be given a standardized test.

Mitigate your financial risk by selecting the right people. Change your existing recruitment process and change your future outcomes.

EQ360 Report

EQ360The EQ 360 report includes not only the feedback of all the raters, but also the feedback of the participant — all in one consolidated report in both and client and coach’s version. This saves the participant time and effort in working through multiple reports, and it allows for better comparison and understanding of the feedback received. Reports are structured in a very clear and linear manner that is easy to follow and reference — making the EQ 360 an entirely positive user experience for the participant

The EQ 360 assessment provides an in-depth analysis by having those who work with the client provide information as well. When observer ratings are compared with the results of an EQ-i 2.0 self-report, a more complete 360 degree profile emerges.

The EQ 360 identifies key employee strengths that can be leveraged to the benefit of the organization, as well as impediments to high performance that could be improved.

Report Appearance

The EQ 360 features a one-page overview, as well as providing a gap analysis which is a visual representation of the ratee’s responses directly compared to the responses of the nominated raters. The gap analysis points out the areas where there is a high versus a low level of agreement between the ratee and the raters, and it highlights potential blind spots.


EQ in Action

Learning in ActionA Unique, Powerful Emotional Intelligence Instrument, this tool makes a contribution to the field in several unique and important ways.

It’s All About Relationship

Emotional Intelligence does not exist apart from relationships. We are created, developed, and sustained in relationship throughout our lives. Our brain and our emotional competencies develop in relationship. As adults, our emotional intelligence is dynamic. Most of us run the gamut of being emotionally smart to dumb depending upon the situation and the stress we are under.

This tool provides individuals with a profile of their basic internalized relational map that has been developed through life experience from infancy to this moment. The report profiles an individual’s relationship strategies in different difficult contexts.

Totally Behavioral Based

Rather than self report about what a person thinks they would do, this tool places individuals in a real situation as they watch several video segments where someone is talking directly to them. They are asked to track their own experience as they watch the video and attend to what the individual talking to them must be experiencing. Individuals are then given about fifty words and statements for each video segment and are asked to rate the degree the word or statement fits their actual experience now.

An EQ profile report is created based upon their reported experience. The tool provides a “snapshot view” of how an individual uses his or her emotional competence in various stressful situations.

It’s About Learning, not a report card

The goal is to offer a mirror of how individuals interpret their experience and respond to different situations, to identify strengths and weaknesses on key dimensions of EQ, and then to select “daily practices” to build fitness in areas of their choice. An EQ Fitness Tool-Kit provides optional daily practices for each dimension. These are practices that can be done anywhere at anytime and can be incorporated into a fitness program, just like physical training.

EQ Competencies Measured

This tool is based upon a developmental model (Sarni, Emotional Intelligence Handbook) and measures the three capacities of emotional intelligence, or what others call the “essential components” (Taylor & Bagby). These capacities include:

  • Self-Reflection
  • Self-Soothing or Self-Regulation
  • Empathy

These capacities provide the foundation for development of the larger array of competencies and skills. When these capacities are well developed the competencies follow with ease.

Several key dimensions of these core capacities are measured. Self-soothing is measured in terms of what we do in relationships; what we tend to do that builds relationships and contributes to positive outcomes and what do we do that is detrimental to relationships and successful outcomes. The eight short vignettes present different difficult dilemmas that give individuals a composite view of their relationship strategies. They are also provided with a profile of how their strategies vary by context and by different issues.
