Assessing Emotional Intelligence in Leadership

Leadership is fundamentally about facilitating performance. Research has proven that a leader’s emotional intelligence is key to their capacity to facilitate emotions in others that drive high performance and employee engagement. 

This is more than just a moral compass; it’s also a recipe for success. 

Organisations with emotionally intelligent leaders achieve a critical lever of sustainable competitive advantage: a high performance culture and customer loyalty.

In high performing organisations people feel significantly more engaged, cared for, valued, proud, and motivated than those in low performing organisations. 

Conversely, in low performing organisations people feel fearful, stressed, dis-engaged, dis-empowered and uncertain.

Assessing the Emotional Quotient in Leadership

At Lynch & Associates Ltd. we use the Genos Emotionally Intelligent Leadership survey - the best measure of emotional intelligence for leaders. 

It measures how well they demonstrate emotionally intelligent leadership competencies in comparison to others. The more often they demonstrate the competencies measured, the more effective their leadership is.
