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: What is Meta-Analysis?
Module: Setting the Foundation
In a prior lesson, I mentioned that Van Rooy and Vish were the first scholars to statistically summarize many independent research studies on EI and thus they were able to draw some really important conclusions about what was known to date about Emotional Intelligence. Notice I said they statistically summarized the results. You see, they didn’t simply read 59 EI research articles and then write up a narrative pulling all the key themes together in some sort of executive summary that has their opinion in it. But rather they used a powerful statistical analysis method called “meta-analysis”. A meta-analysis article’s results are far more persuasive than the results of any single research study. A Meta-Analysis is able to statistically summarize the trends of research results across 10s or 100s of past studies. And it tunes out the noise due to error in the study that may have caused false results in some of the independent research studies which are unlikely to be replicated if the study were to be conducted multiple times.
This method is far better than a narrative style summary often called a literature review in which the author summarizes his or her understanding of many independent studies. As an aside, here’s a quick tip for you, the HR Pro. If you are ever looking to find a good summary of the academic research on a particular topic then do a Google search for a meta-analysis article on it.
