The new EQ-i® 2.0 delivers a revolutionary new experience that leverages the scientific rigor and predictive capability of our current EQ-i® assessment and combines this with everything the market demanded.

The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i®) is the first scientifically validated and most widely used Emotional Intelligence assessment in the world. Based on more than 20 years of research worldwide, the EQ-i® examines an individual's social and emotional strengths and weaknesses.

Respondents self-report on their life and workplace performance in key areas of emotional skill that have been proven to contribute to proficiency in complex business activities such as conflict resolution and planning. By identifying the areas that need improvement, the client can immediately begin developing those areas. At the same time, areas where the client excels can be leveraged to their full potential to maximise effectiveness in daily tasks.

While the EQ-i 2.0® identifies the level of a client's emotional and social functioning based on his or her responses, the EQ 360 assessment provides a more 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. As with the EQ-i 2.0, the new EQ 360 features significant changes based on data and feedback gathered over several years.

This feedback resulted in:

  • Clear alignment with EQ-i 2.0 items
  • Automated set-up
  • Condensed report output
  • Enhanced report appearance
  • Detailed interpretation

Clear Alignment with EQ-i 2.0

One important change that was requested was a better alignment between the EQ-i and the EQ 360. In the new EQ 360, each of the 133 assessment items has a corresponding and equivalent item in the EQ-i 2.0. In addition, the EQ 360 reports are now set up in such a way that participants can view the results for each item across all rater groups; this even includes their self-report results. This improved alignment creates higher face validity because the results can be much more easily understood and reports better interpreted. And, of course, the new EQ-i 2.0 model also applies to EQ 360.

Automated Set-up

The new EQ 360 provides simplicity and automation all based on direct customer feedback. For example, after participants have nominated their own raters, the system emails raters automatically with a unique URL that they then use to access the tool and to rate the participant. Having an automated process makes it easy to work with the EQ 360 and it saves you time.

Report Output

The new EQ 360 Client and Coach reports include not only the feedback of all the raters, but also the feedback of the participant all in one consolidated report. 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.

Report Appearance

The new 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.

If the Leadership Potential page is turned on, graphical icons will appear on every subscale page linking the subscale to the four leadership competencies.

A leadership derailer section examines how low scores for specific EI skills may particularly hamper leadership success.

If the Leadership Bar is turned on, interpretive text describing your client's score in relation to the leadership bar will appear in the "What Your Score Means" section of every subscale page.

As with the Workplace Report, there is also an option to turn on the Balancing EI section, which helps the client understand the importance of achieving balance across his or her EQ-i 2.0 profile.

Leadership topics:

Three current topics in leadership are explored using the EQ-i 2.0 model.
