What We Do
Employees are 400% less likely to leave a job if they have a manager with high emotional intelligence. EQ affects your ability to manage and motivate a team beneath you. We help managers to develop their EQ.
Leaders set the tone of their company. If they have low emotional intelligence, it can have damaging consequences such as poor employee engagement and high staff turnover. We help leaders to develop their EQ.
We help teams to really understand one another at a deeper level so that they can excel. We look at a team's average emotional intelligence scores across 15 key areas and work with them to improve.
75% of all jobs are derailed for reasons relating to emotional competencies and getting the wrong hire is costly and time consuming. We help hiring managers to assess candidates through the lens of EQ.
The EQ-i 2.0
At LeverageEQ we administer the EQ-I 2.0 tool when working with clients, in order to get a snapshot of an individual (or team)'s emotional intelligence skills to begin with. You can download an example report here.
It is the world’s leading emotional intelligence test, with over 25 years of research and experience behind it. Tens of thousands of users in Fortune 500, government, military, non-profit, athletic, entertainment, financial services, pharmaceutical, policing, healthcare, legal, higher education, consulting and leadership attest to the quality of the EQ-i 2.0. It is trusted as one of the most validated emotional intelligence tools available.
While personality tests help people gain self-awareness and insight into themselves, personality traits – such as introversion and conscientiousness – are less coachable because they are stable. However, people can use the EQ-i 2.0 to develop skills that help them perform more effectively regardless of their innate personality.
Emotional intelligence skills are critical for building relationships and teams, resolving conflict, retaining staff, leading effectively, and building resilience.
