MSCEIT Accreditation - Sydney

Measuring emotional intelligence

3-day intensive training


The value of measuring emotional intelligence is becoming increasingly recognised.

Emotional intelligence (EI) lies at the heart of high performance, effectiveness and wellbeing. People who are self-aware and able to manage their and others' emotions have far more impact and capacity to manage stress and complex relationships.  Yet people tend to assess their own EI or others' inaccurately. 

The Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT) is the only abilities-based test measuring emotional intelligence. This individual performance measure doesn't give perceived or subjective EI results, it gives results of actual measured EI skills, like an IQ test.

The MSCEIT was developed by Peter Salovey, Jack Mayer and David Caruso, the originators of emotional intelligence theory. 

Widely used in Australia and globally, the MSCEIT model and  tool can be used to:

  • enhance performance in coaching
  • increase the effectiveness of training initiatives
  • help people gain awareness of their emotions and capacity to manage emotions in self and others
  • aid recruitment and talent selection
  • augment counselling intervention

Participant feedback: Mayer-Salover-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Accreditation, Oct 2012

Anastasia Chye, Senior Manager, Strategy & Projects at Westpac

I finished the MSCEIT accreditation feeling confident in my ability to use my emotions intelligently and very excited by the prospect of applying a new type of thinking that I believe will benefit my colleagues, teams and customers as well as my family and friends. I was greatly inspired by the level of sharing and insights gained over the three days. I had a lot of light bulbs go off and the brightest one for me was the realisation of lost opportunities - how little I use my EI skills and abilities on a day-to-day basis.

What excites me the most is knowing and understanding my personal ability based on the MSCEIT, then imagining the potential for generating positive outcomes for myself and those I interact with through the thoughtful and strategic use of EI in ways that I had never imagined before. I feel my perspective has widened and this has ignited some very positive feelings of possibility when considering all aspects of my life. In being able to better manage my emotions and being more strategic in how I apply the various skills around EI, I have the privilege of being able to create positive interactions for others around me.

I aim to spread my new learnings with my team, colleagues, family and friends through simply talking emotions and encouraging them to do the same. I think there is an intrinsic fear about talking emotions, yet it's about spreading the word that positive and negative emotions do not equate to good or bad emotions. I believe we can have more productive and constructive conversations that produce win-win outcomes and motivate great performance.



Powerful learning

This intensive, specially designed programme will give you an in-depth understanding of the MSCEIT tool and a thorough grounding in how to apply it. 

You will also learn neuroscience and psychology-based research mrevealing why we react emotionally and how these responses can negatively impact relationships, leadership and decision-making.

Highly experiential and fun, the programme will integrate practical tools for developing EI skills and brain-based exercises to engage emotions and widen perspective.

You will have the opportunity to discuss and practice real casestudies and challenges you or your peers may encounter.

You will also discover your own emotional intelligence abilities with a personal assessment, report and debrief.

The MSCEIT tool

Designed to measure abilities that make up emotional intelligence, the test will return feedback in four areas:

  • Perceiving Emotions - your ability to recognise emotions in yourself, in others and the environment
  • Using Emotions - your ability to generate emotions, and use them to enhance reasoning and other cognitive tasks
  • Understanding Emotions - your ability to understand the complexity of emotions and the causes of emotions
  • Managing Emotions - your ability to manage emotions in yourself and others. Managing the way you or others react and respond, particularly in interpersonal interactions and decision making
