EQ  – The Key to Leading Performance

It is a myth that only smart and hardworking people can be successful. While intelligence is important to success, it is by no means the be-all and end-all to success. A growing body of research suggests that emotional intelligence, measured by Emotional Quotient (EQ), is a better predictor of “success” than the more traditional measures of cognitive intelligence (IQ). Emotional Intelligence is not about being soft, emotional and “nice”. Rather, it is about being effective, and knowing how to communicate and work effectively. Emotional Intelligence reflects one’s ability to deal with daily challenges and it also includes internal skills necessary to manage and control oneself in different situations.

In Kandidata Asia´s 2-day program you will discover your EQ level and see first-hand how important it is. Since 1997 we have used the  EQi , a globally leading EQ assessment tool that accurately can both assess, predict and be used for developing performance. Using the EQ framework, our participants will learn to evaluate strategies for talent management, organisational performance and individual development.

Special Features

EQ assessments will be done online prior to the workshop. Participants will receive their individual EQ score and a development report to help each person learn more about his/her EQ profile.

The EQ-i is the globally leading tool for assessing Emotional Intelligence. It has been used by over 100,000 people throughout the world. The test is based on over 20 years of research and has been independently validated by numerous research studies at leading Universities. The tool is used by many major companies and government organisations around the world including IBM, American Express, and the Canadian and US Governments.


By the end of this course, our participants will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) in organizations
  • Know your own EQ profile using a leading EQ assessment tool, available only to certified users
  • Create a personal EQ development strategy based on your own EQ profile
