Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence is a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way. Emotional intelligence is scientifically proven to be the deciding success factor for leadership in managing organisations.

Ascend is a primary distributor and certified training partner for EQi- 2.0 a tool that measures the interaction between a person and the environment he/she operates in. Assessing and evaluating an individual's emo¬tional intelligence can help establish the need for targeted development programs and measures. This, in turn, can lead to dramatic increases in the person's performance, interaction with others, and leadership potential. The development potentials the EQ-i 2.0 identifies, along with the targeted strategies it provides, make it a highly effective employee development tool.


While emotional intelligence isn't the sole predictor of human performance and development potential, it is proven to be a key indicator in these areas. Emotional intelligence is not a static factor — to the contrary, one's emotional intelligence changes over time and can be developed in targeted areas.

Applications of emotional intelligence include Leadership Development, Selection, Organizational Development, Executive Coaching, Team Building, Student Development.
