Thomas International, the global provider of objective management and assessment tools, has launched a new behavioural assessment – the Thomas Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire. The questionnaire is an accurate and objective way to measure emotional competence in the workplace.

It is underpinned by a leading International research programme led by Dr K V Petrides at the Institute of Education, University of London and Professor Adrian Furnham, University College London.

Martin Reed, Chairman and CEO of Thomas comments “IQ is only part of the story when it comes to predicting success. Success is down to technical skills, behaviour and emotional competence. Emotion and behaviour has a massive impact on an individual’s as well as an organisation’s performance. With the Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire we are now able to provide people with an accurate way to measure emotional competence in the workplace.”

Reed continues, “EIQ complements our existing assessments and means we are now able to offer a totally comprehensive view of a person in work – personality, behaviour and ability. Our strategy has always been to provide tools that impact a business at its heart – its people. The launch of this questionnaire underpins this.”

The questionnaire is comprised of 153 questions ranked through seven options from ‘completely disagree’ to ‘completely agree’, taking approx 20-25 minutes to complete.

Emotional Intelligence is an individual’s capacity to understand and control their own emotions, and recognise and manage those of others so that they and others around them can be as effective and productive as possible at work. It is the awareness of and ability to manage one's emotions in a healthy and productive manner. Understanding and developing the emotional intelligence of your staff will create and build an organisation that will succeed.

There are no right or wrong answers to the questionnaire, or good or bad scores, simply facets that may or may not contribute to a job role.

The questionnaire reports on 15 facets, four factors of broader relevance as well as providing a Global Emotional Intelligence score.

The computer generated report shows the results graphically – on horizontal bar charts – as well as numerically.
