This technical support & helpdesk is created to support trainees who will participate or have completed in the “Discovering Emotional Intelligence at Workplace” course to actively increase your understanding of each EQ skill and assist you in developing your action plan.
The 4 – 12 EQ lessons will help you actively increase your understanding and capacity for improving each EQ skill. Emotional intelligence is very different from traditional intelligence (IQ). With IQ, it is understood that you are generally as smart now as you are ever going to be. People learn new facts but their intelligence, or their ability to learn, remains essentially the same.
Emotional intelligence is a flexible skill that can be readily learned. People increase their emotional intelligence by working on the skills outlined in the online learning system. Research shows that people improve their EQ most when the following conditions are present:
Change can be a little…

The rewards will outweigh these challenges because you will be better positioned personally and professionally than ever before.
How to handle it when you feel embarrassed:
Change can also be a little…
Frustrating – because old habits and behaviors (what you say and do) can be difficult to change.

After completing your Emotional Intelligence Appraisal®, here are a few next steps to help you develop your emotional intelligence skills. Emotional intelligence is a flexible skill that can be improved. You can increase your emotional intelligence by working on the behaviors outlined in your assessment results and assessing your EQ progress. Research shows that people improve their EQ most when the following conditions are present:
Create a Development Plan: Set actionable EQ goals and select the strategies you will practice for 6 months to reach these goals. Go to your results portal, select the EQ skill you will focus on first, and then select a strategy from a drop-down list of the 66 proven EQ strategies included in Emotional Intelligence 2.0. A summary of your plan will be stored. Collaborate with a mentor or coach: Using your results portal, share your EQ action plan online with others and invite them by email to comment or share advice. Practice every chance you can!
Watch and Learn from EQ Lessons (results portal): If you’d like new insights into Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Management skills, watch and learn from EQ lessons that include movie clips demonstrating EQ in action. These lessons have been designed to increase your understanding of each EQ skill actively. Just by completing these lessons, you will raise your social awareness skills. Practice every chance you can!
Practice repeatedly until better EQ behaviors become habits.
Assess Your EQ again: Six months from the date you completed your Emotional Intelligence Appraisal, you will receive an email inviting you to retake the assessment. Your retest results will provide you with new EQ scores to compare with your previous EQ scores. The results will also provide you with 3 new EQ behaviors to work on and 3 new EQ strategies to practice.
