I've just successfully completed a certification program in the most popular of all Emotional Intelligence tools -- the EQ-i or Emotional Quotient Inventory. The program was excellent and I enjoyed learning and growing my skills and knowledge - it's one of my favorite things to do, considering 'Love of Learning' is my #3 signature strength! (I've discussed it here.)
While I've been using the concepts of Emotional Intelligence in my work for years and am already certified in another EQ instrument, the Index on Emotional Intelligence, this new certification fortifies my understanding and ability to help leaders, teams, organizations and individuals become more effective in all aspects of work and life.
This instrument, based on the Model of Emotional Intelligence formulated by clinical psychologist, Reuven Bar-On, PhD, is administered online and is valid and reliable. It is actionable: it offers a rich portrait of how engaged we are with each of fifteen behaviors and habits that allow us to use emotions in a rational, positive, and constructive way that helps us build healthy and productive relationships. In working with it, we can better understand ourselves and identify and prioritize ways to improve our effectiveness and satisfaction by letting emotions (our own and others') work FOR us instead of AGAINST us.
