Understand each person’s ability to balance emotions with logic and reason and use emotions to enhance thinking and problem-solving.
It’s important for you to know the people you’re hiring are emotionally capable—particularly for roles where interpersonal interaction is an important factor. Brilliant minds don’t necessarily make brilliant leaders.
Employees with high levels of emotional intelligence tend to be more productive, more stable, better at communicating and solving problems, and easier to work with.
Testing the emotional intelligence of your candidates allows you to make an informed decision. You can confidently offer the position to someone who understands empathy but won’t collapse as soon as the pressure gets switched on.
Hire, promote and manage employees with high emotional intelligence.
People with high levels of emotional intelligence create and manage relationships more effectively.
They tend to work well with others, regulate their emotions appropriately, understand how others are feeling, and can influence and inspire people. Studies have linked emotional intelligence to job performance, customer satisfaction and aspects of effective leadership.
You can’t fake it, only make it
The MSCEIT is an ability-based measure of emotional intelligence that assesses a person’s capacity to effectively reason about emotions and to use emotions to enhance thought and to solve problems.
While most emotional intelligence tools require an individual to self-report on their perceptions of their own emotional intelligence, the MSCEIT presents individuals with a series of tasks that require them to identify, process, understand and effectively use emotional information to achieve particular outcomes. This means it’s highly resistant to ‘faking’ and is rarely affected by response biases such as attempting to present oneself in an overly positive way.
No doubt emotional intelligence is rarer than book smarts, but my experience says it is actually more important in the making of a leader. You just can’t ignore it.
Pre-empt and resolve conflict and personality clashes.
Accurately recognising own emotions and emotions of others
Emotional perception involves paying attention to and accurately decoding emotional signals in facial expressions, tone of voice and artistic expression. The MSCEIT measures the appraisal of emotions in others and in images which is related to accurate perceptions of emotions in oneself.
Employing feeling to enhance cognitive thought
Emotions can assist in harnessing more effective problem-solving, reasoning, decision-making and creative ability and in prioritising tasks by identifying those tasks of greater importance. Emotions also influence the way we think and encourage a variety of perspectives while also fostering creative thinking.
Defining emotions and reasoning with them effectively
Understanding what leads to various emotions is a critical component of emotional intelligence as knowledge of how emotions combine and change over time is important in interactions with others.
Managing emotions successfully
This entails remaining open to emotional information at important times and closed to emotions when they may not be relevant. Managing emotions also refers to using emotions in a considered and rational manner, rather than choosing to act without the appropriate degree of thought.
