Genos Emotional Intelligence 

Emotional Intelligence assessments and programmes from the internationally renowned Genos International.

Everyone has emotions. It‘s a simple fact - a part of our being human. And whether we realise it or not, these emotions impact us every day. They also impact those around us, both in the workplace and in our personal lives.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional Intelligence (EI) or emotional quotient (EQ) is a set of skills that help us better perceive, understand and manage emotions in ourselves and in others. Collectively they help us make intelligent responses to, and use of, emotions. These skills are as important as your intellect (IQ) in determining success in work and in life. Everyone, no matter what job function, has interactions with other people. Your capacity to understand your emotions, to be aware of them and how they impact the way you behave and relate to others, will improve your ‘people‘ skills and help you ultimately be more satisfied and successful.


Who wouldn’t want a higher level of emotional intelligence? Studies have shown that high levels of emotional intelligence boost career success, mental health, relationship satisfaction, humour, and happiness. Higher levels of Emotionally Intelligent Workplace Behaviour is also the best antidote to work stress and building your personal resilience. Learn how you can improve your emotional intelligence and how best to go about it.

Applied Emotional Intelligence

The difference it makes in the workplace

In the workplace, emotional intelligence underlies our self-awareness, empathy, leadership and resilience. In our world of ‘do more with less’, where continuous change is the norm and effective collaboration is essential, these skills are fundamental to our success. People who have been through Genos programmes feel better at work, facilitate more productive work environments, and better lead and engage others.

The Genos Emotional Intelligence Model

The Genos model shown below comprises a set of emotionally intelligent workplace behaviour competencies. Competencies represent skills and behaviours, based on underlying abilities and experiences, that are measurable and observable. The six emotionally intelligent competencies of the Genos model capture the skills and behaviours that manifest from emotional intelligence abilities. The Genos Model of Emotional Intelligence, including the six core skills is as follows:

  • Self-Awareness

  • Awareness of Others

  • Authenticity

  • Emotional Reasoning

  • Self-Management

  • Positive Influence

Emotionally Intelligent Leadership

Leaders in business looking to improve their organisation’s performance can do so by improving their emotional intelligence: that is, their skill at identifying, understanding and influencing emotions.
There is a direct link between the way people feel and the way they perform at work. This is one of the most robust and consistent findings in organisational research. In high performing organisations people feel significantly more engaged, cared for, valued, proud, and motivated than those in low performing organisations. Conversely, in low performing organisations people feel significantly more fearful, stressed, disempowered and uncertain.
Leadership is fundamentally about facilitating performance. Research has proven that a leader’s emotional intelligence is key to their capacity to facilitate emotions in others that drive high performance and employee engagement. This is more than just a moral compass; it’s also a recipe for success. Organisations with emotionally intelligent leaders achieve a critical lever of sustainable competitive advantage: a high-performance culture and customer loyalty.
