Training, coaching and certification in emotional intelligence

Understanding your emotional operating system is the first step toward improving it. Whether you’re a CEO, a VP, a manager, an employee, a parent, a spouse or an entrepreneur, understanding emotional intelligence will be of great value to you.

Effective teams are emotionally intelligent teams

Emotional intelligence skills training can help you to become aware of the importance of your own emotional operating system and how to pay more attention to and impact positively the emotions of your direct reports, your peers, and your managers.

EI is a key factor in developing leadership

Most managers get to be managers because of their technical expertise and not because they are already a great leader. If you already have a great leader as a manager, you’re one of the lucky ones.

The Heart and Science of Leadership

The best way to improve your EI is with EQ coaching.

EQ Coaching can help you

It’s not always easy to change your behaviour. However, driving for the highest performance possible in the high stakes positions you find yourself can sometimes require a change in your deepest ways of being. Having a coach can help immensely with this.

Coaching can also help your team

Developing your managers and bringing along your executive teams is one the most important ways you can invest in the growth of your people. Coaching can accelerate that growth.
