Hiring for EQ

Hiring for EQ


While IQ and technical competence will always be important selection criteria for promotions and hiring decisions, such competencies don’t predict who will emerge as a star performer or who will cause major headaches. Emotional Intelligence research provides several key findings that offer organizations a competitive advantage in the marketplace if they adjust their hiring practices to screen for emotional intelligence.


Hiring for EQ offers your organization insight into how to make sure you are bringing in the right people, blocking those who will be destructive, and properly developing new hires. Hiring for Emotional Intelligence is a one-day follow-up session to Mastering Emotional Intelligence Level 1.
