Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a valuable tool for HR practitioners and managers. Like others, you might want to know "What can we do with EI?" Short answer: Plenty!
Consider this. Since research on Emotional Intelligence began, results overwhelmingly show that people high in various combinations of emotional competencies outperform people who are weak in those areas. When emotional competencies are used in leader selection, for example, performance and retention rates increase significantly.

Competency mapping is similar to Success Profiles in that EI is “mapped” to organizational competencies (and in come cases, individual competencies). Our work and other researchers have shown that certain industries do well because they have a particular set of competencies and/or culture. Mapping EI to particular competencies (culture) enhances an organization’s probability of success. To learn more, contact HPS.
Emotional Intelligence has a significant impact on team member relationships and their effectiveness in reaching a team’s goals. Understanding our own EI strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of other team members, provides a means for improving the interpersonal dynamics of teamwork. We often combine the EQ-i 2.0 assessment with the TESI® to provide a more complete picture of the team.
Customized EI training can help team members learn how:
- individual EI “fits” with the EI of other team members, managers, clients, etc.
- work assignments can be made and accomplished more effectively
- to improve communication
- to minimize the negative aspects of conflict
- to present information most effectively
- to design more effective problemsolving groups
- to assist team members in maximizing their individual and collective strengths
Emotional Intelligence significantly influences how we go about solving interpersonal problems. Thus, conflict in organizations often stems from EI differences. Understanding how to use our EI more effectively helps us solve interpersonal problems more effectively and efficiently and increases the overall effectiveness of work teams. When people understand the basics of how they are different from each other and their strengths and weaknesses, they can take steps to reduce conflict and become more accepting. Customized EI training to manage conflict might include:
- Overcoming EI Differences
- Problemsolving Dynamics
- Emotional Dynamics
- Working Together
- Conflict Models
