Emotional Intelligence (EQ) Profiling tool: EBW
In leadership development, better team working and personal engagement with the world of work, emotional intelligence, or EQ, is a vital factor in success.
The ability to choose and control our emotions. To display empathy as we work with others. When our relationships flourish, our productivity and personal performance increase.
Yet understanding the way the emotional brain works alongside our logical selves is not enough. EQ profiling and skills development go hand in hand. Emotional intelligence is develop-able. It's not fixed for life. Our EQ tools will support you to develop your own EQ, the EQ of your leaders and managers, and the EQ of their teams.
About the EBW Tool
The EBW is an accurate and reliable assessment of emotional intelligence in the workplace, based on 8 key factors. Read more here. Working with our qualified coaches, we'll help your leaders and managers make sense of their report, identify their strengths and development areas.
Leading with Emotional Intelligence Workshop
As well as identifying EQ strengths, developing emotional intelligence in your leaders will have the biggest positive effect on your people.
Our two-day programme 'Leading with Emotional Intelligence' is a practical, EQ skills development workshop that we can tailor to your needs.
We can help you measure the impact of your development. One client outcome was independently measured by Gallup™, who discovered that leaders who had attended a 2-day Forton workshop were not only in the top employee engagement scores in the organisation, but that they maintained those high scores over time.
We can work with you to identify and measure the impacts of your investment in EQ.

Personality Profiling with Type Dynamics diagnostic tools
Why use Type Dynamics
You may be familiar with a product called Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). TDI is a similar, updated and more accurate version of that. The Type Dynamics Indicator (TDI®) is the most up-to-date measure of Psychological Type.
It captures the essence of Jung’s original thinking to provide a flexible yet penetrating assessment of a person’s personality. Underlying patterns are revealed by exploring the interaction of four dynamic preferences:
- What attracts and energises us: Extraversion-Introversion;
- How we see the world: Sensing-Intuition;
- How we make decisions: Thinking-Feeling;
- The way we manage the world around us: Judging-Perceiving.
New thinking about personality profiling
Personality isn't fixed. It's develop-able and context-related.
As well as giving a sharp focus on the fundamental preferences, the TDI is designed to help people identify their most natural style.
This is based on the premise that a person may express their personality in different ways in different circumstances.
TDI offers "Is/Want" options - allowing respondents to rate their response according to how they see things today - and how they would like to develop tomorrow.
Use Type Dynamics assessments to:
- Develop your test-taking skills
- Find out more about your abilities
- Understand your learning style and how you can become a more effective learner
- Explore your personality preferences and how they relate to the world of work
- Find out about your interests and the kinds of work you may find appealing
- Find out what sort of work you may be best suited to
