Emotional Intelligence Assessment


As part of S3's commitment to placing the right people in your organisation, we recognise the importance of identifying a candidate's level of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and we therefore include an EQ assessment as part of our recruitment and selection process.

Whilst qualifications, skills and experience form a crucial part of the identifying suitable candidates, EQ is a key indicator of exceptional performance in individuals and organisations. Employees with high levels of EQ demonstrate strong emotional and social awareness and relate well to others. This is increasingly important in leadership/management positions where people are responsible for managing the behaviours and performance of others.

Raising people’s self-awareness and understanding of others unlocks potential and improves effectiveness, relationships and leadership capability.

What do we mean when we say "Emotional Intelligence"?

The 5 main elements of Emotional Intelligence are:
  1. Self-awareness
  2. Self-regulation
  3. Motivation
  4. Empathy
  5. Social Skills


The ability to know one’s emotions, strengths, weaknesses, drivers, values and goals and recognise their impact on themselves and others.


Involves controlling or redirecting one’s un-resourceful emotions and impulses and adapting to changing circumstances


Self Motivated leaders work consistently towards their goals, and have high standards for the quality of their work.


Leaders with empathy have the ability to put themselves in someone else’s position. Empathic leaders consider other people’s feelings.

Social Skills

Leaders who do well in the social skills element of EQ are great communicators. They are good at developing teams and understanding how to communicate for desired outcomes.

S3's team of Specialists offer EQ testing and can use this to provide you with a sound understanding of your existing teams' EQ levels or for an additional tool in the recruiting process.
