Success depends on more than just your knowledge, skills, or what we often call intelligence. In both personal and professional life, emotional intelligence (your ability to connect appropriately with other people and the world around you) is crucial to sustained success.
The Emotional Intelligence Profile helps to determine how appropriately and effectively an individual style applies both their knowledge and feelings to a given situation. It aids in understanding your personal emotional intelligence style, preferences and behavior, providing a basis for future developmental activities.
Emotional intelligence is mostly about applying feelings appropriately across a range of situations and experiences.

Interpretive notes are provided for each style and a Personal Action Plan in the back of the booklet helps you commit to learning how to flex to whichever of the four styles is most suitable in a given situation.
