What Does This Inventory Measure?Screen Shot 2016-01-22 at 11.45.35 AM

  • The ESCI is one of the only 360° inventories that measures 12 key and critical components of emotional and social intelligence. Rooted in the research of Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., and Richard Boyatzis, Ph.D., the ESCI provides the foundation and informs the strategy for transformational coaching processes and leadership development.

Who is this Inventory For?

The ESCI is also an exceptional tool used for leadership succession programs where identifying and developing leaders is a strategic aspect of the organization’s continued growth and sustainability.

How does it work?

  • Because the ESCI is a 360° tool, the participant asks managers, peers, colleagues, reports, and clients to complete the inventory. All feedback is aggregated anonymously into a complete report for the participant. This comprehensive report provides detailed information on 12 key measures of emotional and social intelligence as viewed by the raters. Verbatim feedback on the participants strengths and areas of opportunity are also included in the report.
