Crosby & Associates is also excited to kick off 2009 by offering our new Emotional Intelligence (EQ) profile. Unlike other instruments, which measure your opinions about your EQ, our profile measures your emotional reactions to a series of on-line video scenarios, thus painting a valid and reliable portrait of your EQ strengths and weaknesses. Coupled with personal coaching, this tool is a powerful asset in building upon your strengths and diminishing your weaknesses. The following is a sample of one of the graphics generated by the profile:

We look forward to working with many of you in 2009, and wish you a peaceful and prosperous New Year!
