Insight

Richard Branson, Winston Churchill, Sir John Harvey Jones. None of them exactly sparkled at school – and yet it didn’t seem to hold them back. Maybe you know someone yourself who was a genius in the classroom but who’s made heavy weather of their career. The reason is simple. I.Q is only one aspect of doing well. The other is our ability to empathise, to fit in, to understand, to handle others - and ourselves. We call it Emotional Intelligence or EI.

It is the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well in ourselves and in our relationships. - Daniel Goleman, 1998

EI refers to the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions in us and in our relationships. EI describes abilities distinct from, but complementary to, academic intelligence or the purely cognitive capacities measured by IQ.

Traditionally, the emphasis when evaluating potential performance has been on intellectual; now compelling research indicates that emotional intelligence is twice as important as IQ plus technical skills for outstanding performance. When IQ test scores are correlated with how well people perform in their careers, the highest estimate of how much difference IQ accounts for is about 25%.

As a manager of a telecommunications company sums it up, "You don't compete with products alone anymore, but how well you use your people".

 

If you are serious about more effective performance, Edison have one of the most effective approaches. This programme of learning will take the best people and make them better. And take mediocre performing people and turn them into effective leaders.

So if you think that improved personal effectiveness may be your route to increased personal performance.

GETTING THE PERSONAL ADVANTAGE:

coaching Our coaches have worked with a wide range of organisations and coached CEOs as well as small business owners and business unit managers. The key to our coaching programmes is flexibility, which means that we have ongoing programmes that have lasted over two years to programmes that will last only for one or two meetings. During each coaching programme the participant is supported by online communication and ongoing activities through the Pathfinder web portal which is included in every coaching plan.

Why Use Pathfinder?
It can be stimulating and even enlightening to receive feedback— especially multi-rater competency feedback. However, many people have difficulty knowing what to do with their feedback once it is received. What is it telling them? Where should it take them? And, it is no easy task to create a development plan that people feel committed to. Once the plan is developed, it may be harder still to carry out the plan and monitor and update personal pathfinderdevelopment progress.

Pathfinder makes the development process easier and more fun than if the individual attempted to find his or her way alone. Personal development is a process and a journey. Rarely do people make meaningful progress on their development goals in less than a year's time. For this reason Pathfinder is a one-year programme with the ability to renew the subscription as often as needed or desired. Although the Pathfinder is designed so that any individual can use the site, those who are taking part in ongoing coaching will achieve the greatest success. The coach will be there to answer questions, clarify feedback, and provide direction and support for the development plan.

WHAT IS AN ECI?

Our coaching programmes are initially generated from the Emotional Competence Inventory (ECI). Prior to being assigned a coach, each individual carries out an ECI to assess their current emotional competencies. An reportemotional competence is a learned capacity based on emotional intelligence that results in outstanding performance at work. For superior performance in jobs of all kinds, emotional competence matters twice as much as IQ plus technical skill combined.
