The EQi Lessons I’ve Learned
Early on, I found myself eager to go directly to the EQi Results page with clients – and of course the client was equally eager to head right to the scores.
I soon realized this was an inefficient – but more importantly, ineffective – approach.
I’ve learned in my years as an EQi Consultant that relying solely on the Results page to develop an action is plan is too prescriptive. Instead, I now work with the client to identify which EQ elements are most important to that specific client’s success- and which elements may be holding them back.
The most interesting and important outcome: sometimes EQ scores are aligned with EQ priorities – and sometimes they are not. I’ve learned to use them carefully, as a starting point. Scores help me develop the questions- but they are never the answer.
What have you learned about using “scored” assessments (such as the EQi) with clients?
