Training and Development Programs

Training & Development

What? A range of training and coaching/development programs aimed at building awareness of EQ in general and about individual EQ strengths/weaknesses in particular. Programs include a comprehensive EQ-i assessment using the EQ-i 2.0. It is a way to provide training and support to accelerate development by identifying important needs early on and to help identify root causes of problems or blocks and provide a benchmark of skills.

Why?  EQ is widely known to play a critical part in performance in an organisation, yet many people dont know what it is and lack insight into their own strengths and weaknesses as well as what they can do about it. This course equips participants with an insight into what EQ is and why it is important for their organisations success. It also offers a profound insight into personal EQ capabilities. Participants develop a personal action plan to improve their own EQ skills.

Typical clients: Private and public sector organisations who recognize the importance of EQ and want a practical and hands-on program to help develop these skills in their teams. Participants have included a wide range of people from senior leaders to school principles to middle-managers.

Why Kandidata Asia? We pioneered the use of EQ assessments in development programs and have conducted several hundred EQ-development programs with well over one thousand participants from Singapore and other Asian countries since 2001. Course feedback is consistently positive and most of our clients continue with the programs for years.

Assessment & Selection

What?  Comprehensive candidate assessment based on a series of rigorous psychometric tests (EQ & IQ) & structured interviews conducted by an experienced interviewer.

Why? An objective and fact-based assessment enables organisations to significantly improve the selection process and pick the “right” candidates with greater accuracy. This is especially important for leadership positions where a traditional 1 hour interview and going with your “gut feel” are  simply not enough.

Typical clients: Hiring managers wanting a second opinion, HR professionals looking to professionalise & standardize hiring. Boards selecting senior leaders, Recruitment advisories looking to increase added value. International appointments involving multiples cultures/languages.

Why Kandidata Asia? We have completed over 2000 candidate assessments over the past 15 years. Appointees range from managers of factories in China  to CEOs of blue-chip companies.

EQ-i Certification Program

What? A 2-day interactive in-class portion focused on building the skills you need in order to use the EQ-i 2.0 and the EQ 360 with confidence leading to formal certification. The course includes EQ theory/research, assessment methodologies, personal assessment, feedback, role-play, etc. A virtual classroom where you access e-learning pre-work as well as the online examination


Why? Experienced Professionals often want a more in-depth perspective on EQ than what a typical training program can offer.  Access to the EQ-i 2.0 requires certification.

Typical clients: Experienced HR professionals, managers with an interest in EQ, trainers/coaches, recruitment specialists, psychologists

EQ in Schools

A growing body of research suggests that Emotional Intelligence is a key predictor of an individual’s likelihood to succeed in life. Whether it is in the common room or the class room, individuals must be able to communicate, work in teams, and move beyond the personal and family issues that get in the way of working and learning. Such skills add up to what is known as Emotional Intelligence and these life skills can have a huge impact on academic achievement and success in life.

Kandidata Asia has worked with principals, teachers and students to help them develop their Emotional Intelligence leading to higher achievement and improved adjustment.

EQ-i is used by many of the highest ranking universities in the US.
