Grounded in the work of modern-day psychology and neuro-science, the Emotional Intelligence Style Profile Facilitator Guide describes four emotional intelligence styles that people are likely to adopt in varying degrees in dealing with life in general and other people in particular.
By learning what contribution each of these style types makes, we can start to recognise that style versatility is likely to lead to the most beneficial outcome in most cases (and that 'high' levels of emotional intelligence are based on perceiving the world in this 'rounded' way, as often as we can).
'Emotional intelligence' (EQ) refers to the personal-management and social skills that allow us to succeed in our interactions with other people. Intuition, character, integrity, motivation, and communication and relationship skills are all part of emotional intelligence.
EQ draws on two simple concepts: applying knowledge appropriately, and applying feelings appropriately. Being intellectually and emotionally astute or tuned-in to a particular situation or interaction and adjusting our behaviour according to what we know and perceive - applying emotional intelligence is considered an important factor in personal and professional success.
The Emotional Intelligence Style Profile is designed to help you understand the way you apply your emotional intelligence style, preferences, and behaviour. It can help you determine how appropriately and effectively you apply your knowledge and feelings in a given situation, and it is this understanding that forms the basis on which you can make adjustments in order to be more effective in the future, personally as well as professionally.
This instrument will not help determine your degree of emotional intelligence or your relative state of emotional health.
