We all experience a wide range of positive and negative feelings at work as we interact with colleagues, customers, suppliers and others. These feelings influence our decisions, behaviour and performance in interesting ways. Positive feelings have a ‘broaden and build’ effect causing us to think more broadly, engage more deeply and perform better. Negative emotions tend to have a ‘narrow and limiting’ effect, causing us to be more closed-minded, less engaging and poorer at performing. At a collective level, these emotions impact the bottom line. In high performing organisations, people experience more positive emotions and less negative emotions than those in low performing organisations.
The Emotional Culture Index (ECI) has been designed to measure three dimensions of emotions at work:
How often your people experience certain feelings at work
Fair and reasonable emotions
How often your people think it’s fair and reasonable to experience these feelings at work given the nature and context of your workplace
How often your people think they should ideally experience these feelings in your workplace in order to be effective
The visual index displays the levels of positive and negative emotions staff are experiencing
Examples of use:
As part of an ‘Introduction to Emotional Intelligence‘ session with stakeholders
To measure the emotions of staff within an organisation, especially before and after an emotional intelligence development program
