The EQ Competency Framework (EQCF) has 9 EQ behaviors that are observable, learnable and measurable. The model consists of 3 domains.
- At the ‘Core’ domain is Purpose. We begin with Purpose because it forms the bedrock of why we are in this life for. When our direction is clear, our “Why” in life bears a deeper meaning and it gives us a drive that is engineered from within. This is where Passion and Purpose reside.
- The ‘Self’ domain represents EQ with Self. The 4 competencies represented are consciousness, emotional management, optimism and self-efficacy. When your purpose is clear, it’s important to address the relationship we have with ourselves. In other words, the quality of our thoughts and feelings, how effective we are as a result of how we speak to ourselves and our ability to handle our emotional state and effectiveness at handling tasks.
- The ‘Others’ domain represents relationship with Others. The 4 competencies represented are empathy, trust, influence and connection. When we are clear about our direction (Purpose), have emotionally healthy habits and resourceful thoughts, our relationships with others are harnessed. We are then able to influence and build connections with others which forge long term growth and respect.
