EQ Competence: Fostering a Talent Advantage that Drives Organizational Performance
Many HR professionals have heard the term Emotional Intelligence before but what is it, really? How can it be used to drive organizational performance? We know it’s related to someone’s behavior and how they interact with others but can fostering this competency in your workforce, especially your senior leadership, accelerate the success of the organization?
Understanding emotional intelligence and how this competency can be leveraged to develop talent is important in today’s competitive business environment.
During this course, we’ll take a close look at what Emotional Intelligence is and is NOT. You’ll gain a high-level understanding of the research and be armed with the knowledge to cut through the hype and clarify myths versus fact. Most importantly, learn what to consider when incorporating the emotional intelligence competency into your talent acquisition and talent development strategies.

Emotional Intelligence is still in the early stages of development as a psychological construct. The current EI tests have been shown to offer some value but not nearly what the hype around EI would lead one to believe. As the research develops, we can expect to see more elaborate models of Emotional Intelligence and more impactful EI tests.
Emotional intelligence has made its way into everyday language and despite its critics, it is growing in popularity and slowly earning its right as a topic worthy of further research.
You will find these Emotional intelligence programs not only being offered in business and Human Resources purposes but rather they are actually being used in schools. Several business schools are actually working to train their students to be more effective future leaders by teaching them about emotional intelligence competencies. But it won’t stop there, the movement of Emotional Intelligence training is growing. It is appearing in primary and secondary schools as well. In 2016, the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence published a study about evidenced based methods for schools to systematically develop student’s critical social and emotional competencies. Stay tuned because it’s going to be a brave new emotionally intelligent world.
