Measuring Opportunities

Emotional Intelligence Assessments

Pre-employment, post-hire, or for personal use: get the information you need to hire, develop, and promote with the EQ-i2.0.


The EQ-i2.0 Model

Ovation Coaching uses the internationally recognized EQ-i2.0 model and assessment test to frame emotional intelligence in terms of fifteen individual, learnable skills and five composite skill sets:


Self-Perception: self-regard, self-actualization, emotional self-awareness


Self-Expression: emotional expression, assertiveness, independence


Interpersonal: interpersonal relationships, empathy, social responsibility


Decision Making: problem solving, reality testing, impulse control


Stress Management: flexibility, stress tolerance, optimism

Note: The inclusion of the last two composites, decision-making and stress tolerance, differentiate the EQ-i2.0 model from the others I’ve investigated, making it much more useful in workplace environments.

The EQ-i2.0 assessment test is a Level B instrument, vetted by research, conforming to standards set by the American Psychological Association, and administered only by Certified EQ-i practitioners.

The test scores the participant on four levels:

  1. the fifteen individual emotional intelligence skills;
  2. the five composite skill sets;
  3. well-being and happiness;
  4. and overall emotional intelligence.

It also points to imbalances in skill sets that may amplify problematic behaviors. For instance, someone with low impulse control and high emotional expression might come off as a drama queen, while someone with high optimism and low reality testing may often find themselves getting in over their heads.

The beauty of the model is that it provides a vocabulary to describe behavior without judgment, positions the scores as a way of illustrating which skills are over- or under-utilized, and encourages assessment of both the benefits of practicing EQ skills in a balanced way, and the costs of not doing so.


The test is administered online, and takes 15-20 minutes to complete.
