Want to become a Norwegian pioneer in using EQ-i 2.0®?

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. It is now also available to organizations in Norway.

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)

You can benefit from using EQ-i 2.0 in leadership development, selection (together with personality profiling), organizational development, executive coaching and team building.

Why wait? - We now invite You to become the Authority in Emotional Intelligence!
