EQ-i 2.0 & EQ 360 Training

Certification for EQ-i 2.0 & EQ 360 assessments

EQ-i 2.0 Emotional Intelligence Assessment 

The EQ-i 2.0 is the leading emotional intelligence assessment used in recruitment, coaching and leadership development. The EQ-i 2.0 provides an in-depth understanding of an individual's emotional functioning in five broad areas:

  • Self-perception

  • Self-expression

  • Interpersonal

  • Decision Making

  • Stress Management.

The EQ-i 2.0 is used within organisations:

  • to recruit highly emotionally intelligent individuals

  • to identify talent with the potential for promotion and to support their growth

  • to develop managers in people skills to support their technical competencies

  • to improve team performance

  • to support leadership development programmes with one-to-one coaching.


The EQ 360 assessment provides a more in-depth analysis by gathering information from an individual's work colleagues, manager and direct reports, resulting in a more complete 360-degree profile.

What people say:

"A fun, engaging and relevant course - I absolutely recommend! I came knowing very little about EQ-i 2.0 and left not only knowing much more about it but also having explored it and practised my new skills so I'm now confident I can apply it in the workplace straight away, and I'm looking forward to it!"
