TESI stands for Team Emotional & Social Intelligence. The TESI® Collaborative Growth Team Emotional & Social Intelligence Survey It is the first scientifically validated Team Emotional Intelligence (EI) assessment in the world.

Teams are the source of most of the productivity, creativity and reliability in organizations. Work is completed successfully – or not – because of the quality of teams performing it.

Emotional and Social Intelligence reflects the ability to recognize and manage our own emotions and to recognize and respond effectively to those of others.

While individuals must address their own emotional intelligence, teams must take emotional & social skills to a higher level by recognizing the collective impact of their engagement. High EI Teams recognize that their emotions are applied in the context of a social network, a complex system of relationships that requires sensitivity and tempered responses.

All emotional & social intelligence (ESI) components come together in influencing our ability to respond to and work with change, which is a constant dynamic in both our personal and professional life.

From Emotional Intelligence to Collaborative Intelligence

The 7 Core Skills Measured by the TESI:

  • Team identity measures the level of pride each member feels for the team as a whole, and how much connection members feel to the team.
  • Motivation is a competency that measures the team’s internal resources for generating and sustaining the energy necessary to get the job done well and on time.
  • Emotional awareness measures how well team members accept and value one another.
  • Communication provides information on how well team members listen, encourage participation, share information and discuss sensitive matters.
  • Stress tolerance measures how well the team understands the types of stress factors and the intensity impacting its members and the team as a whole.
  • Conflict resolution measures how willing the team is to engage in conflict openly and constructively without needing to get even.
  • Positive mood measures the positive attitude of the team in general as well as when it’s under pressure.

Powerful use of these seven skills is necessary for teams to change to collaborative teams that possess the universally sought-after benefits of sustainable productivity as well as emotional and social well-being of all team members. This journey can create profound benefits for your team members, teams and your organization.
