OVERVIEW of Team Emotional Intelligence

The increasing complexity of teamwork in the 21st Century means that teams are unlikely to achieve superior performance through chance or the skill-set of an able team leader…..What matters is how the team manages Emotion.

Team Emotional Intelligence (Team EI), developed by Professor Vanessa Druskat and Dr Steven B. Wolff, has been shown to be critical to the functioning of high-performing teams.

Team EI Survey is designed to help teams perform at their highest potential.

CLIENTS who have experienced the quality of our Accreditation programme:

Manuelle Charbonneau

Manuelle Charbonneau, Ph.D. Founder and Principal at Charbonneau Leadership Consulting, French-American Executive Coach, Leadership Development Innovator, Inter-Culturalist

"I researched many team assessments before selecting the Team Ei accreditation. The Team Ei reports combined the data driven, research-based foundation my clients and I wanted while being sensitive, user friendly and action-oriented without being simplistic. A delicate balance which demonstrates a high level of experience and wisdom about teams in organizations. I participated in a live virtual accreditation which included participants from around the world. It was seamlessly organized and structured while being engaging and personable. Drs. Bharwaney, Wolff and Prof. Druskat have put enormous amounts of thought and care in the delivery of the program, which combined depth and understanding with practical application, both during the live breakout sessions and in the subsequent “homework” exercises. I am planning to use Team Ei Survey for a client next month already. Thank you for a great learning experience and highly effective preparation!"
