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.

Title: The Challenge
Module: Setting the Foundation
All these different takes on what is Emotional Intelligence or EI can get confusing and make it difficult for readers of the published research to really get clear on what EI is and whether it is even a useful construct. After all, it’s tough to summarize the meaningfulness of research and trends across many studies that have been published to date if the studies themselves can’t even agree on the definition for Emotional Intelligence and agree on what the variables are supposed to be related to EI.
Fortunately, two scholars David Van Rooy and Chockalingam Viswesvaran or “Vish” have worked together to tackle this challenge and they were the first to statistically summarize the results of several independent research studies on the topic of EI. Specifically, they looked at the results from 59 studies to determine what we can conclude about the relationship between the three streams of research on EI and job performance. They found some very interesting results. I’m going to elaborate on further in another lesson. But first, I need to explain to you just why their approach to summarizing many other independent studies was so important.
