Have you ever wondered why some very smart people are lonely, unhappy, and unsuccessful? Do you remember anyone from your childhood who wasn’t that smart, but was outgoing, confident, had a positive attitude, and later in life became very successful? We used to think that IQ can predict how well one will do in life. But you know from your own experience that often high IQ is just not enough. What is this “other intelligence” that is so much more important for succeeding in the 21st century? It is called Emotional Intelligence.

BarOn EQ-i 2.0 is the first scientific measure of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence refers to the emotional, personal, social and coping dimensions of life.

The BarOn EQ-i 2.0 meaures one’s ability to deal with daily environmental demands and helps predict one’s success in life, including professional and personal pursuits.  It can help identify skills in people management and leadership capability.

Research shows a strong relationship between emotional intelligence and job performance.  Measuring emotional intelligence in the workplace is the first step toward improving it.  Emotional skills can be enhanced through training, making the BarOn EQ-i 2.0a valuable instrument for identifying potential areas for improvement and measuring effectiveness of organisational development programs.
