What's the most important skill people need to succeed in organizational life?
The United States Air Force found
that by using emotional intelligence
to select recruiters, they increased
their ability to predict successful
recruiters by nearly three-fold.
The immediate gain was a saving of
$3 million annually.
Experienced partners in a multi-national
consulting firm who scored high
on emotional intelligence assessment
delivered $1.2 million more profit
from their accounts than did
other partners –
a 139% incremental gain
An analysis of more than
300 top-level executives from
fifteen global companies showed that
six emotional competencies
distinguished stars from the average.
Spencer, L.M., 1997
A study of 130 executives found that
how well people handled their own
emotions determined how much
people around them preferred
to deal with them.
Walter V. Clarke Associates, 1997
What the experts say
According to corporate training leaders like Bersin and ATD, corporations understand the importance of developing the non-technical skills required for employees to not only function as a cohesive team and execute organizational strategy, but also to become great leaders. While technical skills are vital, the development of emotional intelligence in not optional.
It’s never too early or too late to work on these competencies. It would be ideal if the development of these competencies took place during formal education but that is rarely the case. Work with us to implement an individual or team development plan.
eq-Aware™ provides structured assessment, development, and communication to help anyone become more emotionally intelligent and thrive in everything they do.
