The EQ Competency Framework has 9 EQ behaviours that are observable and measurable. We created this profile based on at least 15 years of performance standards and measurements so that each one who eventually takes this profile can influence change through clearly defined behaviours and corresponding actions.
The model consists of 3 zones.
1) The ‘Core’ Zone represents ‘Purpose’. We begin with Purpose because it forms the bedrock of why we are in this life for. When our direction is clear, our “Why” in life bears a deeper meaning and it gives us a drive that is engineered from within. This is where Passion and Purpose reside.
2) The ‘Self’ Zone represents EQ with Self. The 4 competencies represented are ‘consciousness’, ‘emotional management’, ‘optimism’ and ‘self-efficacy’. When your purpose is clear, it’s important to address the relationship we have with ourselves. In other words, the quality of our thoughts and feelings, how effective we are as a result of how we speak to ourselves and our ability to handle our emotional state and effectiveness at handling tasks.
3) The ‘Other’ Zone represents relationship with Others. The 4 competencies represented are ‘empathy’, ‘trust’, ‘influence’ and ‘connection’. When we are clear about our direction (Purpose), demonstrate emotionally healthy habits and have resourceful thoughts, our relationships with others are harnessed. We are then able to influence and build healthy relationships with others which forge long term growth and mutual respect.
