Happy New Year! In Part 2 of our series covering joint research from the Human Capital Institute (HCI) and Multi-Health Systems (MHS), we expand on the importance of EQ to Leadership Development.
In their report entitled “Leadership and Emotional Intelligence: The Keys to Driving ROI and Organizational Performance”, they found that “organizations that value and widely use Emotional Intelligence are 3.2x more likely than other organizations to have effective overall leadership development efforts.”
When they further explored the ROI of different methods of integrating EQ, they discovered that the greatest impact on EQ occurs from Leadership Coaching. The following identifies the overall increase in EQ performance between organizations that do or do not use these methods:
- Leadership Coaching on EQ leads to a 36% increase
- EQ Assessments lead to a 26% increase
- Training & Development on EQ leads to a 20% increase
Their research is based on an online survey conducted in April – May 2013 with 784 respondents representing more than 500 organizations worldwide. The complete study is available from HCI or MHS.
