What is EI anyway?

EI is about perception. With you in the center of an environment, EI is your ability to assess your locale, place, and what else is going on around you.

Comedians call it, “Reading the room!”

This is where you take stock of everything in your surroundings. If there are people there, you can read their non-verbal cues, like facial expressions and posture. This awareness leaves you in a better position to respond in an effective manner.

The simple answer is that it connects you to power and influence! You are accessing real-time data to manage the situation.

With your input from your surroundings, question everything.

As a credentialed business coach and analyst, one of my primary functions is to work with individuals and company managers to clarify where they are presently, where they would like to advance, and what tools they have and need to achieve their desired outcome.

I use a variety of tools to assess perceptions including Platinum Rule instruments, my experience and training in assessing behavior. My preferred tool is the EQ-i®, emotional intelligence inventory. I have specialized training on the EQ-i® and DISC Inventories and access to multiple other sources including a company culture index. I prefer the EQ-i® because it is the least judgmental instrument I have found. It focuses on strengths and areas of development related to the goals set by the individual. For example, people are more likely to apply the EQ-i®’s information rather than label themselves by the Myers-Briggs categories.
