There’s nowt so weird as folks, they say. If only we could understand ourselves and others, life and work would be so much easier.Emotional intelligence

Making your mark and being truly successful involves listening to people’s concerns, creating meaningful dialogue, building trust and establishing personal relationships.

At The Graceful Detective, we use Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i), an assessment tool which helps this understanding, giving us clues to help crack the code of beliefs and behaviours, helping you gain insight into yourself and others, the better to succeed. “The EQ-i is a major step toward the recognition of another kind of intelligence that plays a major role in people’s ability to cope with life.” Steven Stein

EQ-i consists of 133 items that may be completed in 30 minutes, and which, once they have been interpreted by The Graceful Detective, can be used as the basis for coaching and future action.

You can use this to:

  • Assess your own strengths and challenges.
  • Understand someone better before you recruit them.
  • Develop a challenging employee.

EQ-i looks at:

  • Self-awareness and self-expression
  • Social awareness and interpersonal relationships
  • Stress management
  • Adaptability to change
  • General mood and self-motivation

“There can be no knowledge without emotion. We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours. To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.” Arnold Bennett
