Group, experts in individual and organizational performance, has released Behavioral EQ, an emotional intelligence (EQ) assessment and training class to measure and improve EQ and workplace productivity.
Multiple studies have shown that emotional intelligence competencies often account for the difference between star performers and average performers, particularly in positions of leadership and sales. After decades of EQ research and development efforts, businesses have called for a model that addresses the most important aspects of EQ and that is measured specifically for a work context. BEQ skills are associated with increased sales, better recruiting, effective leadership and high customer service. And the good news is that there's evidence that these skills can be developed through training programs, making individuals and their organizations more productive and effective."
Behavioral EQ represents the third generation of emotional intelligence models and concepts. Emotional intelligence was first described in the late 1980s as a form of intelligence that could be objectively measured, similar to cognitive intelligence (IQ). This original concept had limited success, but was then expanded into several competency models by various researchers, most notably Daniel Goleman. While very popular, research over the past two decades has discovered that only a handful of the competencies from these models are related to superior performance, and the "emotional" aspects of the models have been difficult for people to grasp and put into practice. What the research has clearly shown is that a limited number of behaviors are important for increased effectiveness, and that by practicing these behaviors people can enhance their EQ. Group has helped individuals and organizations improve workplace performance by building interpersonal skills, improving teamwork and developing leaders...Model™, a proven model for effective leadership performance, work and personal relationships.
