Meet Canada's Leading Speaker on Emotional Intelligence       (Stoddart 2000, MHS 2003)


In a dynamic multimedia presentation, Dr. Steven Stein shows why emotional intelligence is important and how it can affect your life. Throughout the past 100 years, IQ or cognitive intelligence has been thought to be the key to success in life. Over the past 20 years, a vast amount of evidence has accumulated demonstrating that a different set of factors, now known as emotional intelligence, can play a more important role in our ability to succeed at work and at home.

The development of the world's first test of emotional intelligence, the BarOn Emotional Quotient Inventory® (EQ-i®), has played a large role in facilitating this new understanding. The identification of key emotional skills that relate to success in the workplace has had a major impact on many smart organizations. Factors that have long been regarded as "common sense" have been identified, defined and can now be benchmarked. Dr. Stein coined the term "emotional smarts" to describe these factors.

More and more organizations around the world are realizing how important it is to have emotionally smart people on board. The impact on the operational performance of their organizations is now being realized. In Dr. Stein's presentations you will learn more about the impact of emotional intelligence in selection, development, and leadership.

Studies looking at Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and job success have found that Intelligence Quotient has accounted for approximately 6% of the variance. New data looking at Emotional Quotient (EQ) and success on the job will be presented. The importance of the differences between Emotional Quotient, Intelligence Quotient  and personality will help you understand the unique contributions of Emotional Quotient to success.

Top Talent
In this new, dynamic presentation Dr. Stein demonstrates how emotional intelligence is used in selecting top talent. Specific success factors have been identified for a number of occupational groups including sales, customer service, collections, lawyers, dentists, and many others. You will learn how the US Air Force saved $2.7 million in one year by using emotional intelligence as part of its selection process of recruiters.

New research on what makes a successful leader (and why smart leaders fail) is part of this new presentation. Dr. Stein has tested members of the YPO (Young Presidents' Organization), YEO (Young Entrepreneurs' Organization), IA (Innovators' Alliance), and Naval Top Gun Pilots. This information along with a study carried out by the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) gives you new insight on today's successful leaders.

You will learn how managers are using their benchmarked results as part of their recruitment and retention process to make better hiring decisions.
