Emotional Intelligence & ESCI

Developing the key ability for high performance often referred to as "EQ"

It's emotional and social intelligence that differentiates high performers from average performers.

Did you know? Being self and socially aware and knowing how to use that awareness helps us to achieve our goals.

It all begins with self-awareness or the ability to tune into our feelings and to recognize how those feelings are affecting us and our performance. Daniel Goleman speaks of an inner radar that "holds the key to managing what we do - and just as important, what we don't do".

Emotional Intelligence is critical to success.

Commonly called "EQ", emotional intelligence contributes to professional, academic, and social success. The World Economic Forum's "Future of Jobs Report" shows EQ as a crucial top 10 job skill for success today and in the future.

Emotional Intelligence is learnable.

Unlike IQ, emotional intelligence can be learned through feedback and practice. EQ is comprised of 4 domains of which 2 are inner-facing (self-awareness, self-management) and 2 are outer-facing (social awareness, relationship management). Within the 4 domains are a total of 12 specifically defined, observable competencies.

Korn Ferry Hay Group's ESCI establishes a starting point.

The Emotional and Social Competency Inventory ("ESCI") is a 360° feedback tool that allows us to compare our perception of our EQ ability to the perceptions of others. For each of the 12 competencies, we can see what is working well, what could be even better, and what to do next to improve our performance.
