Leadership EI test

If you are interested in being a better leader, there is nothing more important than growing your Emotional Intelligence (E.I.). According to the book Emotional Intelligence 2.0 by Bradberry and Greaves, 90% of high performers also have high E.I. This suggests that it’s challenging to be a high performer without high E.I. Moreover, E.I. accounts for 58% of your performance, the most vital driver of leadership excellence.  

Additionally, in a study by N. Kohli and P. Tripathi called “Emotional intelligence as a predictor of employees general health,” they found a “significant positive impact of emotional intelligence on general health… and it will positively impact the (employee) success of their work as well as non-work life.” This finding includes improvement in the health of both the leader and their team.

In this Leadership Emotional Intelligence Assessment, you are evaluated on how well you practice all five attributes of E.I. After you complete it, you will get an overall summary of your results and some recommendations for growth moving forward.
