The EQ-i 2.0, a scientifically proven emotional intelligence development tool, focuses on five key facets that work together to develop a level of emotional, social functioning and well being.

Before you can begin to understand others and your interactions and impact on those around you, self-perception and being in touch with your feelings is vital.

The EQ-i 2.0 emotional intelligence development tool provides key insights into your own behaviour allowing you to take a step back and reflect on your reactions to certain situations.
