What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional intelligence measures an individuals ability to identify and manage their own emotions and to understand and deal with the emotions of others.  

When we refer to EQ we are referring to a measurement of emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence impacts all of us – regardless of position or seniority – both professionally and personally.  At A Better Version, we passionately believe that improving EI will positively benefit all aspects of people’s lives.

Unlike IQ and personality which are deemed to be fixed in your mid to late teens, emotional intelligence continues to grow and develop throughout your life.  

Every available study demonstrates that companies with high EQ teams perform better.  Developing your companys emotional intelligence will positively impact all areas of your business and will deliver significant competitive advantage.
