One of the most popular tools in recent years to aid leadership coaching is the EQ-i, a behavioral tool that allows clients to measure/assess the amount of behavior they engage or display on 16 specifically selected scales. While many people seek the EQ-i to identify and address EQ elements that are underdone (yielding low scores), OKA has found that what is more pressing to many leaders/executives is their overdoing (an overly high score) a given behavior. At first glance, it might seem the best approach to overdoing a given behavior would be to do LESS of that thing, but it is actually quite difficult—if it is possible at all—to actively do less of something. Actually, and to many surprisingly, the real goal for someone who overdoes a given behavior is to learn to more actively engage the EQ behavior(s) that naturally balances whatever is being overdone. If I too much or too often overdo Emotional Expression, my development goal would be—not to be less expressive, but to engage better and more often my Impulse Control. The goal of EQ is never to do less of something, but to achieve effective balance.

This practical, interactive session introduces participants to the EQ-i model and points out the most often accessed balancing elements within the EQ-i. Whether an active EQ-i user or merely curious about what all the buzz around Emotional Intelligence is about, this session will be useful and fun.
