The Emotional Intelligence Assessment (EQ)


In the workforce today, businesses are structured in a way that almost everyone has some level of decision- making ability. Whether the decisions are big or small, they have a direct impact on how successful, efficient and effective individuals are on the job, and it is becoming more and more important for employees to focus on and improve their decision making abilities.


Making better decisions starts with people understanding their Emotional Quotient (EQ).  While it is often misunderstood as intelligence quotient (IQ), Emotional Quotient is different because instead of measuring general intelligence, it measures emotional intelligence. EQ can be defined as the ability to sense, understand and apply the power and acumen of emotions to facilitate high levels of collaboration and productivity. EQ is important in the business environment, because it helps people leverage their awareness of emotions for effectiveness in the workplace.  The TTI Emotional Quotient report will help identify ways they can take action to accelerate their EQ development and leverage their new knowledge to make better decisions on the job.


The assessment measures an individual’s emotional intelligence with an questionnaire that is taken online and immediately generates a report with detailed information about the individual’s EQ score. The report will empower individuals to understand their own EQ so they can avoid making high-risk decisions without understanding how their emotions are influencing their choice. Instead they can make educated, sound decisions with their head, instead of just their heart.

The report focuses on five areas within interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence. Intrapersonal intelligence is the ability to understand and control oneself, while interpersonal intelligence is the ability to understand others.

  • Self-Awareness – The ability to recognize and understand your moods, emotions and drives, as well as their effect on others.
  • Self-Regulation – The ability to control or re-direct disruptive impulses and moods and the propensity to suspend judgment and think before acting.
  • Motivation – A passion to work for reasons that go beyond money and status, and a propensity to pursue goals with energy and persistence.
  • Social Skills – A proficiency in managing relationships and building networks.
  • Empathy – The ability to understand the emotional makeup of other people.

With TTI Emotional Quotient, you can improve the coaching and development process by giving superior performers the opportunity to truly understand their emotional intelligence.
