Solving the People Problem: Emotional Intelligence Survey

How well do you understand and honor the differences in people? 

To solve the people problem, you must increase your awareness of yourself and others, and apply that awareness to choose your actions wisely and adapt your behavior for mutual benefit.

In our book Solving the People Problem, we introduce the concept of DISC-EQ, a synthesis of two powerful ideas. The first is emotional intelligence (EQ for short), which is the degree to which one understands and manages human emotions and behavior. The second is DISC, which is a construct that explains personality styles and provides a common language for us to talk about those human emotions and behavior.

If you are like most people, you spend as much as 85 percent of your working hours interacting with your colleagues. You go to meetings together, flesh out strategies over the phone, and send updates over email. Your work is the work of compromise, camaraderie, and communication.

To be successful in today’s workplace, you must understand how you and other people behave, and why we all behave that way. After all, we each have natural tendencies and preferences when it comes to things like decision-making, communicating, and dealing with conflict.

The best way to understand the power of DISC-EQ is to recognize that DISC is the tool that enables people to grow their EQ over time.

Like any other skill, emotional intelligence can be learned and improved over time. And the best place to start is with an accurate baseline measure of where you stand right now. Enter your access code above and answer a short set of questions (the process takes most people about 5 to 10 minutes).

Once you finish, you’ll receive a personalized report that shows your areas of strength and your opportunities for improvement, along with specific ideas for how to apply and expand your knowledge and skill.


BONUS: By answering the questions, you'll be contributing to Brett and Evans' ongoing research about how people act, react, and interact. Thank you for helping us with this important work.
