The New EQ-i 2.0® Experience

The New EQ-i 2.0® truly exemplifies these core principles. In fact, it is so far beyond what is available in the market today that we prefer to talk about the EQ-i 2.0 in terms of providing a new experience rather than a new product.

A New Experience

Why is it a new experience? It’s an experience because the EQ-i 2.0 provides you with an array of services and client-focused offerings, all delivered through an easy-to-access online portal. This new experience not only provides you with a newly updated emotional intelligence assessment, the additional services will help make you an expert  in emotional intelligence, thereby giving you  a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Like with any good development process, we didn’t come up with this overnight. In order to really understand what this  experience should look like, we needed to  get our information straight from the source.

Motivation Assessment

What it Is

The Genos Employee Motivation Program is a unique model and assessment of motivation, combined with inspiring development programs that lift levels of employee engagement.

How it is Used

  1. To improve employee engagement. Our motivation assessment and development programs improve employee engagement by creating greater awareness of motivation and greater alignment between what people are motivated by and what they do at work.
  2. To develop leadership. Our Motivating and Engaging Your Team program improves leaders’ understanding of engagement and how to lift the engagement of the people they lead by better understanding what individually motivates them. High levels of employee engagement are most quickly and efficiently achieved when leaders facilitate an individualized approach to it. This in part is what our motivation solution is – a development program for leaders comprising an assessment, process and tool kit that helps them understand motivation at an individual level and increase employee engagement on that basis.
  3. Team building. Organizations provide teams the assessment and a development program to help them understand each other’s motivations and how to work best with each other on that basis.

MIKE’S PROFESSIONAL COACHING SYSTEM IS OPEN TO EVERYONE!

Want to be an effective successful leader?

You understand about emotional intelligence and recognize how important it is for leadership. You know that organizations want people who are emotionally intelligent and not just those with a high IQ. You also know that you are going to have to do things differently or you will lose the respect of others.

But you recognize that you have one or two behaviors that you want to correct, such as your impulsive anger, irritation or frustration at people who don’t see things the way you do or who get in your way.

Or perhaps you just want to get on better with people and not get them off-side. Maybe you freeeze up when you need to give a presentation. You may like your work, but are not proud of the way you are working – your short temper, bluntness or overall conduct. Perhaps you don’t suffer fools gladly!

My program will give you the emotional skills you never learned in any formal leadership course to better manage your behavior. Leadership is relationship. But while it’s all well and good ‘knowing’ what leadership is, it’s something else to be in control of your emotions and be able to use them to lead and empower others.

First you must build a trusting relationship with your followers through being predictable and wise and they will respond because they know, like and trust you.

I am passionate about emotional leadership. I believe it is the secret to empowered leadership. The process that I will coach you through is the same one I have used with leaders in companies around the world. This is a proven science-based process. If you stick to my system, you will reach a new level of self-understanding and greater effectiveness in your personal and professional life.

The Emotional Leader Program (ELPro) will help you gain the discipline to achieve positive, measurable, long-term improvement in your own leadership behavior – and help you be more successful than you already are. You’ll also discover the fast track to reducing your stress and improving your emotional health. And you will become unconsciously skilled at applying your emotional intelligence.

Once you have mastered your own behavior, only then will you be equipped to lead and influence others, taking them to new heights.

I’m not talking about some old ideas you’ve already heard before. I’m talking about finding just one annoying habit – one small flaw – that’s keeping you from where you want to be and getting it fixed so you are back on track and no longer held back from achieving your desired goal.

I have now personally coached and mentored clients from different nationalities worldwide. I’m now training emotional leaders globally to succeed through behavior change – To get from where you are to where you want to be!

ELPro combines research from my Ph.D. study into the emotional intelligence of managers, evidence-based emotional intelligence constructs, and cognitive-behavioral insights, PLUS practical hands-on emotional know-how learned through life’s experiences. Coaching clients will have access to my online coaching resources at EmotionalLeader.com and my extensive emotional development resources at EmotionMatters.com

The best way to learn anything is through experience. The discipline that is embedded within the leaders I coach is equally relevant in my own behavior. In simple terms – What is good for you is good for me. You will gain the confidence you need through step-by-step actions to choose the right goal, change your perceptions, build your emotional leadership habits and live the lifestyle of your dreams.

Here are eight compelling reasons why you must choose ELPro.

Discover how to develop these personal habits:

  1. Recognize emotion in yourself and others

Is Optimism Contagious?

This guest post is by Dr. Marshall Goldsmith of Leading News.

In the past I’ve talked about the value of optimism in life and at work, how the two intersect, and different challenges that crop up to sway even the most confident and consistent optimists. I examined a high-ranking executive who’d had some setbacks, but was able to get over them, excel further than another, shall we say, crabbier personality, and create significant value for his organization and workforce.

What’s interesting about this is that many of us are already irrepressible optimists, at least when the subject is ourselves. Psychologists call this “optimism bias,” and it’s one of the more well-researched concepts in behavioral economics. When people judge their chances of experiencing a good outcome — landing a big account, getting promoted, having a successful marriage, making a good financial investment — they estimate their odds to be better than average. When they consider the chances of something bad happening — losing a big account, getting fired, getting divorced — they assume odds lower than what they estimate for others.

Optimism bias inflates our self-confidence. It is the reason 90 percent of drivers think they’re above average behind the wheel of a car. It’s why some years ago when my two partners and I estimated our individual contributions to our partnership, the total came to more than 150 percent. It’s why almost all newlyweds believe there is zero chance their marriage will end in divorce, even when they know 50 percent of marriages self-destruct. This is true even for the newly remarried, who have already been divorced. It’s the reason most smokers, despite the surgeon general’s warning on every pack of cigarettes, believe they are less likely to die of lung cancer than most nonsmokers. Their optimism extends to believing they are better than others at cheating death.  It’s the reason new restaurants in big cities continue to open, despite well-documented failure rates as high as 90 percent. Restaurateurs know the numbers, but they do not think they apply to them.

Successful people also tend to be optimists. That’s a good thing too. Without it, people wouldn’t get married, or plunge their life savings into a start-up business, or devote 10 years of research to developing a cancer drug. A society that doesn’t take risks based on optimism is doomed.

But something happens to our optimism when we stop evaluating ourselves and begin evaluating our peers’ chances of succeeding. We’re not as optimistic when we take ourselves out of the equation. In fact, we can become pessimists and cynics. As evidence, gauge your level of optimism when you present one of your cherished ideas in a meeting. It should be high, or how else would you have the courage to air the idea in public? Compare that to your level of optimism when an arch-rival presents his or her best idea in the same meeting. It’s probably not as high.

You may greet the idea with skepticism, perhaps cynicism. You’ll compare its value to your idea and find it wanting. Part of this is predictable envy and competitiveness; we don’t mind a rival succeeding, but not more than us or at our expense. Part of it is the difficulty in being optimistic about someone else’s abilities where we have no control over the outcome. But much of it is simply our failure to be generous in extending our optimism to others. That’s the downside of optimism bias. We may see everything that could go wrong with the other person’s idea while remaining blind to what could go wrong with ours. It’s not a quality that we should hang on to.

If we can take the positive spirit inside us toward what we are doing now and extend it to what other people are doing — in other words, make our optimism contagious — then each of us has a better chance of becoming a person who can rise from a setback that might crumble others, a manager who doesn’t yield to the standard cynicism and negativity, and a leader whom others will follow.
