He recognizes (along with leaders in the industry) that the EQ-i 2.0 Model can be a powerful compass for anyone wishing to explore and productively grow their emotional and social skills while increasing their overall success in life.
Here’s what some of his readers have said:
“Emotional intelligence is term that you hear a lot about these days. However, when asked to go deeper than just the term itself, the waters can get “murky”. Steve has done an excellent job of going deeper by taking the Sub scales of the EQ-i 2.0 and making them refreshingly clear – thus making emotional intelligence much more understandable.”
– Dr. Hank Clemons, President, Society for Emotional Intelligence, Tampa, FL
“Asking leaders to dive into the work of Emotional Intelligence can trigger some neuroscience angst just by the language of EI/EQ. Steve Whiteford has the creative ability to translate technical terms into practical strategies for action. Integrating leading edge work from the disciplines of mindfulness, neuroscience and leadership he’s been able to design a great guide to help the reader strengthen their EI – like having an EQ coach in your pocket!”
– Laurie Hillis, MA, PCC, CDWF-C, Megatrain Inc., Calgary, Alberta, Canada
“Steve Whiteford has done an outstanding job of translating a complex emotional intelligence model into one that can be used for a wealth of personal learning and development. His descriptions of the 15 MHS EQ-i 2.0 subscales are concrete, using easy to grasp language that can be applied to many real business situations. I especially value the linkages he makes between subscales, creating an integrated model for personal growth.”

“Steve Whiteford has written an outstanding guide for those of us who are not professionals, in understanding Emotional Intelligence. This entertaining and informative book simplifies and provides clarity to a complex assessment and the interconnections of its scales and subscales. It is written in such a way as to provide a way for everyone to increase their emotional intelligence, whether or not they know anything about EQi 2.0. Whiteford’s practical knowledge of EQi 2.0 has been a boon to my agency and the case managers we train.”
