The Emotional and Social Competence Inventory (ESCI) is a multi-rater tool designed to assess emotional intelligence in leaders. The ESCI is based on the work of Dr. Daniel Goleman and Dr. Richard Boyatzis. The result is an assessment and development tool of unmatched precision and authenticity.
The ESCI provides clients with precise and focused feedback on their strengths and limits. Based on the feedback from a variety of rater groups (i.e. self, manager, direct reports, peers, others), the ESCI indicates the specific emotional competencies which are strong and those where development is needed to enhance the individual’s leadership effectiveness.
The ESCI 360° assesses an executive in the following competencies:
