Thomas Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire

28 février 2007

Thomas has launched a new behavioural assessment - the Thomas Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire.  It is an accurate and objective way to measure emotional competence in the workplace.

The concept of emotional intelligence came from challenges that intelligence, or IQ, was one of the most reliable indicators of performance.  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. 

What is Emotional Intelligence?

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.

What is the Thomas Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire?

The questionnaire is comprised of 183 questions ranked through seven options from 'completely disagree' to 'completely agree', taking approx 20-25 minutes to complete.

It is underpinned by a leading International research programme lead by Dr K V Petrides at the Institute of Education, University of London.

There are no right or wrong answers, or good or bad scores, simply facets that are either acceptable or unacceptable in a specific job rob 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.

How will it help my people and my business become more successful?

Business is built on people and if your people can communicate well, relate to others, handle change and collaborate as a team then you will succeed. 

Emotional Intelligence will add to behavioural assessments, such as PPA, to give a more rounded view of an individual's potential.  PPA indicates the individual's preferred working style and Emotional Intelligence indicates how well they are aware of and can manage their emotions and those of others.

If your people are emotionally aware they will be able to:

  • Understand themselves and on anther
  • Communicate
  • Developing others
