Let's Talk EI

Happy Friday!

I've had the pleasure of taking two clients this week through their EQ-i (Emotional Intelligence) development sessions as part of their on-going coaching programmes. 

I am using the EQ-i tool more and more in my work with individuals and teams, so I thought I’d share the following for those of you who would like to find out more about how and it can help you lead yourself and in turn others.

⭐️What is Emotional Intelligence?

EI or EQ as it is also referred to, is centred around using emotional information in a meaningful way. 

This includes the way we understand and communicate our own emotions, how we perceive the emotions of others, how we communicate and how we make decisions. Being aware of, being in control of and being able to express our emotions as well as understanding and appreciating the emotions of others is crucial in order to engage, inspire and develop those around us.

⭐️The 5 elements of Emotional Intelligence 

The EQ-i profiling tool I use with clients breaks down Emotional Intelligence into the following elements:


✨ Self-perception – Am I realistic about how I perceive myself?

✨ Self-expression – How can I express myself more effectively and communicate

more clearly?

✨ Interpersonal – How can I connect at a more personal level with my team right


✨ Decision making – How can I make more informed decisions balancing the

needs of the business, the team and our customers?

✨ Stress Management – How can I improve ways to manage and reduce

pressure and stress and in turn help my team to do the same?

⭐️ Why is Emotional Intelligence development beneficial?

Emotional intelligence is proven to be a key indicator of performance and development potential in the workplace. Focusing on emotional intelligence can help you and those you work with to:

  • Increase self-awareness

  • Increase self-regulation

  • Improve wellbeing and resilience

  • Enhance communication

  • Promote a positive work culture

  • Develop effective leadership skills

  • Build team relationships and engage with colleagues

  • Successfully navigate organisational change

  • Make decisions in emotionally charged situations

Individuals who possess these qualities are better equipped to lead themselves and others through challenges, foster positive work environments, and build strong, collaborative teams.
