Want to become a specialist in emotional intelligence?

In the age of automation and AI, emotional intelligence (EI) is set to become a “must-have” skill. Be a forerunner and get EQ-i 2.0® certified now!

Want to help improve human performance and development? The Emotional Quotient Inventory 2.0® is a scientifically tested psychometric assessment which measures emotional intelligence and how it can impact people and the workplace. EQ-i 2.0 helps You to help others.

Emotional intelligence is a very strong predictor of individual performance, efficiency and well-being. EI is not a static factor – to the contrary, one’s emotional intelligence changes over time and can be developed in targeted areas.

The EQ-i 2.0 is used in more than 60 countries, and companies such as Google, GE and Intel use it in their recruitment and development programs.

Organizations benefit from employees who display a high EI quotient:

  • Top benefits for organizations include enhanced productivity, high employee satisfaction, increased market share, and reduced attrition
  • Employee benefits include greater wellbeing, reduced fear of job loss, more openness to change, and the safeguarding of human jobs from machines
  • Organizations can achieve returns up to four times higher by investing in EI skills (Source: Capgemini Research Institute, Emotional Intelligence Research, Executive Survey, August–September 2019)

What our customers are saying?

"The EQ-i 2.0 course was well organized. The online course provided sufficient basic knowledge on the subject, and the interactional training sessions gave an opportunity to deepen our knowledge. We felt the course was suitably demanding, truly enabling us to use the method; the final exam also backed this up. It’s good that the trainers make sure the users of the method really know how to use it."


Psychologist Consultants, IKIGAI Assessments Oy

"My clients have felt that it’s particularly useful to see how the various components of emotional intelligence are balanced. Some of the insights on this balancing have resulted in big changes in ways to lead and interact, with very good results."



"Personality is the bedrock of who a person is, but their EQ is the capstone that forms the whole person. Understanding emotion skills and knowing your own skills is a great basis for self-knowledge and personal development. The EQ-i 2.0 is a comprehensive and concrete method for assessing emotional intelligence, and the best part is that it centers on personal well-being. And for many of us, that’s what matters the most. I combine these two tools, the WorkPlace Big Five personality profile and the EQ-i 2.0 emotional intelligence scale, to provide the client with a useful combination that supports the coaching process regardless of the theme of the coaching."
