Reuven Bar-On, Ph.D.
Founder & President, Bar-On Test Developers
Major, Israeli Defense Forces (Ret.)
Honorary Commissioner, The National Command & Staff College

Dr. Bar-On is acknowledged as one of the leading pioneers, researchers and practitioners in the field of emotional intelligence (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reuven_Bar-On). During his doctoral studies in 1985, he coined the acronym “E.Q.” and introduced the idea of an “Emotional Quotient” to measure emotional intelligence.

He has examined the impact of his model of emotional intelligence on a wide range of behavior and performance including physical and psychological health, cognitive functioning, innovative thinking, academic and occupational performance, resilience, job satisfaction, as well as organizational effectiveness and productivity. For many years moreover, he has focused his professional interest on studying, measuring and enhancing various aspects of performance, teamwork and leadership in the corporate world as well as in the military.

In 1998, the U.S. General Accountability Office submitted a Congressional Report to the Senate Committee on Armed Services recommending the application of the “Bar-On EQ-iä” throughout the U.S. Armed Forces. Additionally, a team of psychometricians at the University of Oxford recommended to the British Department of Education using another one of his assessment instruments in schools throughout the United Kingdom.

In addition to his efforts to determine the most robust emotional and social contributors to human performance, Dr. Bar-On has continued to explore a greater array of key factors and has developed 12 psychometric instruments to assess these factors since 1978. An example of his interest in evaluating and enhancing a wider area of performance is the development of a multifactor conceptual and psychometric model of performance based on the following five composite factors that comprise a total of 22 individual factors: (1) physical fitness and stamina; (2) cognitive functioning; (3) intrapersonal strength; (4) inter-personal compatibility; and (5) motivation and drive. He developed the “MMPä” (“Multifactor Measure of Performanceä”) to measure this expanded model of human performance.

The following is a selected list of well-known organizations that have applied Dr. Bar-On’s products and/or services: FBI; Royal Canadian Mounted Police; U.S. Armed Forces; Israeli Defense Forces; Irish Defense Forces; Canadian Forces; World Bank; Harvard Medical School; Walter Reed Medical Center; British Foreign Office; Center for Creative Leadership; and NASA. His company, Bar-On Test Developers, is currently partnering with an American software firm for the purpose of developing a VR simulator to assess and strengthen emergency management. This project was recently granted funding from the National Institute of Health.

Dr. Bar-On has authored and co-authored over 50 publications and has presented research findings at numerous professional conferences worldwide. His publications have been cited over 9,000 times in scientific publications to date.

He has held adjunct professorships in the Medical School at Tel Aviv University, in the Psychiatry Department at the University of Texas Medical Branch as well as in the School of Education at the University of Pretoria. In 1998, Dr. Bar-On became affiliated with the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning at the University of Chicago. In the same year, he was accepted as the first non-founding member of the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations at Rutgers University. In 2005, he was also asked to be a consultant at the National School Climate Center in New York. Dr. Bar-On has joined the editorial boards of four different journals; and more recently, he was appointed to the position of Associate Editor in the Organizational Psychology Section of Frontiers in Psychology.
