About MSCEIT emotional intelligence (EQ) feedback and coaching
Emotions provide information about the world. Working in tandem with our general intelligence, social skills, personality, and professional training can help us make optimum decisions or terrible ones.
Emotionally intelligent people can observe emotions in themselves and others and have the capacity to reason with and about emotions and use that information to enhance their decision-making processes. Emotionally intelligent people make great decisions based on a synthesis of head and heart.
How emotionally intelligent are you? How emotionally intelligent are your teammates?
Research suggests that it's difficult to evaluate our level of EQ. Most people say they are more emotionally and socially intelligent than other people, but statistically, that cannot be the case.
We tend to overestimate our abilities, and EQ is one such area. The good news is that EQ can be measured with an online psychometric test. The test takes about forty to fifty minutes and gives powerful feedback on our ability to recognise, use, understand and manage emotions.
The Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT) was developed by the most established emotional intelligence researchers and is used by thousands of organisations worldwide.
MSCEIT gives an overall score for EQ and gives sub scores to recognise emotions in ourselves and others, generate new emotions, understand why they arise and what they may lead to and manage emotions.
Why take the test?
People working in organisations with a high workload, working in highly competitive environments, and tight deadlines need an edge. Emotionally intelligent people also tend to have better wellbeing levels and communicate and collaborate more effectively with team members.
Through understanding their unique EQ profile, team members can improve their ability to work with their emotions and use them to create a competitive advantage.
Each of the four main areas of EQ is developable
- Recognise emotions - anticipate the social signals sent by clients and colleagues to share information effectively, satisfy expectations and add value for customers
- Use emotions – be able to generate new emotions, which are relevant to the task at hand. This is an essential skill when handling heightened workloads or dealing with challenging customers or colleagues
- Understand emotions – if we know why emotions arise and what actions people are most likely to take, we can manage teams and anticipate customer requirements and timelines
- Manage emotions – emotions provide information about whether our own goals or other people's goals have been obstructed or satisfied. Knowing how to use this information and apply valuable strategies to embed the learning from this information is a vital workplace skill.
