SHL Emotional Intelligence Report

Emotional intelligence (EI) or Emotional Quotient (EQ) is the capability of individuals to recognize their own, and other people’s emotions, to discriminate between different feelings and label them appropriately, to use emotional information to guide thinking and behaviour, and to manage and/or adjust emotions to adapt environments or achieve their goals. This OPQ (Occupational Personality Questionnaire) report is based on Daniel Goleman’s theory of Emotional Intelligence. It provides valuable information for coaching purposes and can be used in conjunction with other tools, such as 360 feedback to make links between individual preference and style and perceptions of others.
