• Interpretation of results is engaging and readily accessible in beautifully presented reports.

• Results are both internally benchmarked and benchmarked against global norms.

• Raters provide free text responses for each competency assessed. These are captured in the Feedback Reports and help participants understand the context behind rater responses to assessment questions.

• Results come with Development Tips workbooks detailing how participants can improve their emotional intelligence, relationships and success at work.

Housed in a modern, responsive, online survey system, raters can complete Genos EI on their phone, tablet, PC or Mac, anywhere, at any time.  At 42 items in length Genos EI typically takes 10 minutes to complete.

The secure administration platform makes it easy to set up survey groups, monitor survey progress and download finished reports.

Key EI Competencies Measured

The Genos model shown below comprises a set of emotionally intelligent competencies. Competencies represent skills and behaviours, based on underlying abilities and experiences, that are measurable, observable and predict workplace performance.  The six emotionally intelligent competencies of the Genos model capture the skills and behaviours that manifest from emotional intelligence abilities.


The competencies of the model help people consistently demonstrate the productive being states (on the right of the competencies), as opposed to the unproductive being states (on the left of the competencies).
