Women account for more than 50% of the U.S. Labor force and 60% of college graduates in both the U.S. and Europe. Yet, women hold only 5.0% of CEO positions at S&P 500 companies.

In addition, research has identified an individual’s emotional intelligence as a key aspect and driver of leadership effectiveness.

EQ assessment have found men and women to be equally emotionally intelligent, but strong in different areas. These differences often advantage men and disadvantage women at work.
