  • At an American insurance company, agents who tested strong in 5 of 8 key emotional competencies, sold twice as much insurance as those who tested average  

    • $114,000 per annum  versus $54,000 per annum
(Hay/McBer Research and Innovation Group 1997)


  • Sales people at Metlife who rated highly in the emotional competence of ‘learned optimism’ sold 37% more life insurance in first two years (Seligman 1990)


  • At a national consulting firm, the partners who scored above the median multiple emotional competencies delivered 139% more profit than the average - at a value of $1.2million (Boyatzis, 1999) 


  • In an article published by Harvard Business Review ‘How Bell Labs Creates Star Performers’ managers who undertook the training doubled their productivity against the control group.
