In addition to identifying areas of strength and areas for improvement, the instrument provides detailed descriptions of emotionally and socially intelligent behaviors when present and when lacking, as well as extensive suggestions for development, helpful for coaches, HR professionals and the individual receiving the results. The 78-item SEIP is available online as both a self-report and 360 multi-rater format. Three versions are available: Adult, Youth (for ages 11 – 18), and Workplace (which uses business language). All reports are administered online, and results are immediately available to view online or download in PDF format. For teams and organizations, we will also provide, if needed, a team report on the strengths and development needs, so that training dollars can be directed to target the areas that most needed, at no additional cost.
