Revealing the Connection Between Agility and Emotional Intelligence
Most everyone can adapt to some situations, but there are others outside their comfort zone. People who find it easy to remain calm when big plans change, for example, may find it almost impossible to push back appropriately when the changes are ill-conceived. If they can learn to stretch, to rise to those less comfortable challenges, they’ll have more moves—which makes them more valuable to the organization, more marketable themselves, and more comfortable in new circumstances..

About the Agile EQ Assessment
Each participant in the program takes an assessment and receives a 26-page profile based on your results.
The profile provides each participant with a step-by step guide, a sort of roadmap, to improving your Emotional Intelligence.
Say a participant excels at the empathy mindset and supportive, one-on-on conversations but resists connecting with strangers at sales events. The profile outlines beginning, intermediate, and advanced steps they can take to make the outgoing mindset more comfortable.
Or say a participant is naturally resolute, great at withstanding doubts and criticism, but struggles to compromise with others. The profile helps them see what that weakness is costing them and how chipping away at it could open up new opportunities.
The profile acknowledges the participant’s existing strengths, making it easier to take action.
The program is powerful not only because it’s pragmatic, but also because it’s highly personalized. The profile shows a participant’s likely EQ strengths, based on their DiSC® style, but it goes further—with “effort meters” that show precisely how challenging each mindset is for that person. After reading the profile, the participant sees clearly the shape and scope of their comfort zone.
