The modern workplace calls for a new kind of Emotional Intelligence model focused on the most practically important aspects of EQ and focused specifically on modern workplace challenges. Research shows that the behavioral elements of EQ — the aspects of the model that focus on our actions — lead to the most visible and meaningful improvements. These same behavioral aspects have proven to be the best predictors of job performance and success.
TRACOM’s Behavioral EQ Model™ is based on the latest research in both brain function and performance. It focuses on the most important elements of Emotional Intelligence and those that can be successfully developed.
