    Properly selecting and developing employees are critical aspects to promoting overall success in an organization. Traditionally, Human Resources Departments and Industrial/Organizational Consultants have relied upon insights provided through personality assessments and scores on skills-based ability tests to determine a job candidate’s suitability for a given role and/or to establish employee development goals. Doing so is valuable; however, one aspect of ability that is often overlooked, yet as research shows, is highly correlated to success in nearly all occupational roles is Emotional Intelligence. Emotional Intelligence involves being aware of and effectively managing and using the emotional states of one’s self and others to achieve goals. It encompasses the ability to effectively manage stress, resolve conflict, and solve problems; consequently, it is of critical importance in public service roles, especially sales, customer relations, politics, and law enforcement. This presentation is intended to discuss Emotional Intelligence matters in further detail as well as introduce to attendees the well-validated Genos International Model of Emotional Intelligence. Moreover, this presentation will discuss how PAN, a provider of assessment solutions, has applied the Genos model to create an Emotional Intelligence selection report and 180- and 360-degree developmental feedback reports, specifically for clients in the protective services sector.
