Emotional Intelligence

Groundbreaking research by Daniel Goleman has shown that Emotional Intelligence (EQ) - the ability to recognise and manage one's emotions and those of others, and to motivate self and others - is a much better predictor of success as a leader than IQ. Exploring and developing our emotional intelligence not only makes us happier, it makes us able to motivate ourselves, manage stress in our lives, and resolve conflict with others. It gives us the skills to be able to encourage, comfort, discipline, and confront different kinds of people appropriately in different situations. It determines how effectively we express our emotions within the cultural contexts of our family, our workplace, and our community. It determines how well people listen to us and how well we are heard.

Dattner Grant has an extensive suite of products and services that are underpinned by some of Australia’s leading exponents of the MSCEITTM model of EI assessment and development. As part of this suite we have developed both a one and a two-day workshop on Emotional Intelligence that explores the research and key concepts, then specifically and pragmatically guides leaders on how to apply this to improve their leadership capability and organisational performance. Both of these workshops have received continual critical acclaim from our clients.

These workshops can stand alone or be incorporated as part of a long-range leadership development program. The administration of the Mayer Salovey Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT TM), in partnership with Evidence Based Psychology, forms a foundational part of the program and is a highly beneficial development tool. Developed by Dr’s Mayer, Salovey and Caruso in the 1990’s on the basis of their theoretical model, it builds on a comprehensive body of work-based evidence. It uses an ability approach to Emotional Intelligence that defines Emotional Intelligence as the ability to understand your own and others’ emotions and to use emotions to think more effectively. It consists of four domains: perceiving emotions, facilitating thought, understanding emotions, and managing emotions.

In addition, we maintain strong links to the Institute of Coaching based at McLean Hospital, Boston. This provides access to the constant developing knowledge base of the use of EI and many of the other cognitive tools and capabilities that can assist you and your organisation to be at the forefront of effective leadership development.
