Emotional and Social Intelligence Profiling
A simple tool to gain peer feedback on observed emotional and social Intelligence
The Emotional and Social Intelligence Profile (ESI) is a feedback report based on the results of a multi-rater 60 item questionnaire. The ESI is a self rating system based on what we believe our personal emotional and social intelligence levels are plus the bonus of feedback by close colleagues.
The results allow us to hold up a mirror so we can really check our personal awareness.
Underpinning the Framework is a range of related criteria. These are the intentions, emotions, skills and social factors that determine:
Organisations talk a lot about emotional intelligence, and we certainly know when a manager or team leader DOESN'T appear to display the behaviours we want and need in our organization; while there are other Emotional Intelligence Tools out there this one really expands on getting to the core of a person's emotional and social competencies.'
So often when we employ a person based on traditional recruiting methods, we realize later, that the person we have recruited or promoted simply doesn't ‘fit'. This tool is a must before you recruit or promote ANYONE. It will alert you to behaviours that could destroy a team or department or even organization.
