EQ-i 2.0 emotional intelligence

About the EQ-i 2.0

Use the EQ-i 2.0 & EQ 360 emotional intelligence assessments to recruit and develop talented individuals.

The EQ-i 2.0 (Emotional Quotient Inventory 2.0) is a professional and reliable measure of emotional intelligence. It is the latest version of the renowned BarOn EQ-i, the world's most popular emotional intelligence assessment.

This questionnaire measures an individual's emotional intelligence in 5 composite areas with 15 separate sub-scales by asking candidates how frequently they use different emotional skills. Interpretation of scores on each scale focuses on the importance of achieving a balance across the profile. Unlike personality which is considered relatively stable over time, emotional intelligence skills can be learned and developed as people develop in their careers. 

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.

As accredited coaches, leadership development experts and culture change specialists, we were keen to be able to offer our clients a psychometric assessment tool that is rooted in psychological theory which also helps raise awareness of modern leadership challenges. The EQ-i 2.0 suite of tools has been a fundamental part of our programme design and we see time and time again that these tools allow for a deeper exploration into leadership styles, communication, empathy, assertiveness, resilience and wellbeing - all of which link strongly into workplace culture conversations.
