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: First EI & Performance Meta-Analysis
Module: Setting the Foundation
In order to accomplish the meta-analysis research Van Rooy and Vish created an operational definition of EI that included all three streams of research by taking a more expansive view of EI. This allowed them to draw conclusions across the results from all three streams of research, in addition comparing the trends across each stream of research. They used a broader definition of Emotional Intelligence describing it as “the capability to accurately recognize, understand, express and influence the emotions of oneself and others in order to guide the thoughts and behaviors towards successfully coping with environmental factors”. Using this operational definition, they were able to study the relationship of overall EI key variables. For example, they found that overall Emotional Intelligence is moderately correlated to job performance and modestly correlated to academic performance. They also examined EI’s relationship to other pertinent variables such as General Mental Ability and the Big Five factors of personality. I’ll talk more about these in a subsequent lesson.
