EQ Profiling

EQ Profiling

In leadership development, betteDevelop EQ in leaders and teamsr team working and personal engagement with the world of work, it's now common knowledge that emotional intelligence, or EQ, is a vital factor in success.  The ability to choose and control our emotions.  To display empathy as we work with others.  When our relationships flourish, our productivity and personal performance increase. 

Yet understanding the way the emotional brain works alongside our logical selves is not enough.  EQ profiling and skills development go hand in hand.   Emotional intelligence is develop-able.  It's not fixed for life. 

The tools here will support you to develop your own EQ, the EQ of your leaders and managers, and the EQ of their teams.

The message is simple, if you want to predict whether an individual or team will succeed, measure and develop their EQ.

Personal EQ Profiling

Leaders and managers are under greater pressures and demands in today's changing world.  Change is, itself, now the norm. 

How well we flex and adapt can be predicted through EQ profiling.  As can the ability of a manager to connect emotionally with peers and team members.  Our ability to influence others is also a predictable quality, related to EQ. 

By profiling emotional intelligence and tapping into strengths, you identify development areas too. 

At the Forton Group we work with models that support and develop resonant leadership styles for more emotionally-intelligent leadership development.

Measurable results

You'll see the difference that a positive EQ environment can have in a number of ways:

  • Better communications
  • Less sickness and absenteeism
  • Increased personal and team performance
  • Better health & safety
  • Improved employee engagement scores

Team EQ Profiling

It's hard not to sound evangelical when talking about EQ.  But today's world of work relies upon the quality of our relationships.

“Workaday frustrations and passions – boredom, envy, fear, love, anger, guilt, infatuation, embarrassment, nostalgia, anxiety – are deeply woven into the way roles are enacted and learned, power is exercised, trust is held, commitment formed and decisions made.  Emotions are not simply excisable from … organisational processes; they both characterize and inform them.”

Prof. Stephen Fineman (2000)

Developing a Team EQ profile supports an understanding of how the team actually works and their development needs.

Two key elements of team EQ are 'sociability' and 'solidarity' (the Goffee and Jones model).  Some teams need, and value, emotional intelligence more highly, while others less so. 

If a team culture requires high emotional intelligence but team members don't display those skills, profiling and skills development may be the answer.overview of EQ in teams

Measuring impacts

One interesting outcome of a client project was measured by Gallup, who remarked that leaders who had attended a 2-day Forton workshop were not only in the top employee engagement scores in the organisation, but that they maintained those high scores over time.

Personality Profiling

Personality Profiling with Type Dynamics diagnostic tools

Why use Type Dynamics

You may be familiar with a product called Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).  TDI is a similar, updated and more accurate version of that.  The Type Dynamics Indicator (TDI®) is the most up-to-date measure of Psychological Type. 

It captures the essence of Jung’s original thinking to provide a flexible yet penetrating assessment of a person’s personality. Underlying patterns are revealed by exploring the interaction of four dynamic preferences:

  • What attracts and energises us: Extraversion-Introversion;
  • How we see the world: Sensing-Intuition;
  • How we make decisions: Thinking-Feeling;
  • The way we manage the world around us: Judging-Perceiving.

New thinking about personality profiling

Personality isn't fixed.  It's develop-able and context-related.

As well as giving a sharp focus on the fundamental preferences, the TDI is designed to help people identify their most natural style.

This is based on the premise that a person may express their personality in different ways in different circumstances.

TDI offers "Is/Want" options - allowing respondents to rate their response according to how they see things today - and how they would like to develop tomorrow.

Use Type Dynamics assessments to:

  •     Develop your test-taking skills
  •     Find out more about your abilities
  •     Understand your learning style and how you can become a more effective learner
  •     Explore your personality preferences and how they relate to the world of work
  •     Find out about your interests and the kinds of work you may find appealing
  •     Find out what sort of work you may be best suited to
