At Everyday, we use evidence-based assessments to personalize the training experience to every participant.
Why are assessments so effective?
Assessments create a better understanding of each participants individual needs to enable a personalized training experience. Tailoring the training experience to each participant has shown to have a number of benefits, including higher engagement, increased learning, and improved transfer of learning.
How it works.
This is how we work with assessments during a typical training program.
Before training starts, we perform pre-measurements to get an initial understanding of each participant.
During the actual training, we maintain a feedback loop based on the participants behaviors to improve accuracy.
After the training is completed, we perform a post-assessment to evaluate progress.
Based on the insights gathered throughout the training, we provide a comprehensive followup report.
Example results of the Everyday EQ™ assessment.
Our assessment tool.
Our primary assessment tool for each training is Everyday EQ™, a 50-item test grounded in the evidence-based model of emotional intelligence. Everyday EQ™ uses a 360° survey to measure participants proficiency in five domains.
Self-awareness is all about knowing your emotions, your personal strengths and weaknesses, and having a strong sense of your own worth.
Self-regulation is the ability to control emotions and impulses. People who self-regulate typically don't allow themselves to become too angry or jealous, and they don't make impulsive decisions.
Motivation is, in its simplest form, the force that drives you to do things. It is what pushes people to achieve goals, feel more fulfilled, and improve overall quality of life.
Empathy is the ability to identify with and understand the wants, needs, and viewpoints of those around you. People with a high level of empathy are good at recognizing the feelings of others, even when those feelings may not be obvious.
People with strong social skills are typically team players. Rather than focus on their own success first, they help others develop and shine. They can manage disputes, are excellent communicators, and are masters at building and maintaining relationships.
Why assess EQ?
When picking a scientific framework for measuring leadership skills, our research led us to emotional intelligence (EQ) and how it's rapidly becoming the key skill for a thriving workplace.
We need leaders who are emotionally intelligent and able to model and champion co-operative working. They'll coach, rather than command; they'll be driven by empathy, not ego. The digital revolution needs a different, more human kind of leadership.

Where people often fall short is on the EQ. A lot of management skills are EQ, because management is all about how people function.
The single most important factor for star performers in a company is not IQ, advanced degrees, or technical experience, it is EQ.
Emotional intelligence matters over-and-above psychological constructs that have been measured for decades like personality and IQ.
