BarOn Emotional Quotient Inventory® (BarOn EQ-i) for Clients of The Physician Executive’s Coach

What is the BarOn Emotional Quotient Inventory (BarOn EQ-i®)?

Based on 19 years of research by Dr. Reuven Bar-On and tested on over 85,000 individuals worldwide, BarOn EQ-i® is the premier scientific measure of emotional intelligence. BarOn EQ-i® measures one's ability to deal with daily environmental demands and pressures, and helps predict one's success in both professional and personal pursuits.

EQi is an array of non-cognitive capabilities, competencies, and skills that influence one’s ability to succeed in coping with environmental demands and pressures.  As such, it is one factor in determining one’s ability to succeed in life.  The model is multifactorial and relates to potential for performance.  Factorial components resemble personality factors, but can change and can be altered through conscious and concerted effort.

What does BarOn EQ-i® measure?

BarOn EQ-i™ includes four validity indices and a sophisticated correction factor rendering scores for the following components;

Intrapersonal Scales

What makes BarOn EQ-i® so useful?

Skills associated with emotional intelligence are acquired and can be improved through training, making BarOn EQ-i® a valuable instrument for identifying potential areas for improvement and for measuring the effectiveness of organizational development programs.

EQi is but one factor in determining one's ability to succeed in their role as a physician leader. Unlike IQ, EQ is made up of factors that can be learned, developed and improved upon. Enhanced EQ will be helpful in improving performance and effectiveness.
