Choose the third day: Leading with Emotional Intelligence

All EQ-i 2.0/EQ 360 Certification Courses are two days long and include certification with both the EQ-i 2.0 and the EQ 360 assessment tools.

Then there is the third day. We call this day Leading with Emotional Intelligence and highly encourage and  recommend it for professionals that want to take their ability to develop EI competencies through coaching and/or training to the next level.

About Leading with Emotional Intelligence

Purpose: To create a deeper understanding of how to assist clients/participants to improve their EI skills with a special focus on ‘leading one’s self’ and others. We all need to lead ourselves whether we have direct reports or not. Leadership is about making a choice to ‘step up to the plate’ and deal with whatever life puts in our path.

Methodology: Through role modelling, direct instruction, interactive exercises, the facilitator will take you through a one day course, explaining how and why we deliver the content the way we do. Through this process you will get ideas and approaches that you can use with your coaching clients and groups for any length of session. You will also receive the participant workbook, course outline, PowerPoint slides, video clips, exercises – all in modifiable form so you can edit and use these materials in any way that meets your unique needs.

Learning objectives

Participants will:

  • be able to create a workshop, course, or Key Note presentation designed to introduce and develop EI skills (again with the focus on leadership development, but can be easily modified for your specific purpose – and we’ll coach you on how to do this if you have questions)
  • obtain all the materials in modifiable form to create participant workbooks, handouts, course outlines, PowerPoint presentations, exercises for  specific learning points and understand at a deeper level what is required to create real sustainable EI skill development for individuals and groups
  • receive post-course support to address challenges faced in creating EI development programming for clients


EQ-i 2.0 Workplace Report

Included with the course is your own personal EQ-i 2.0® Workplace Report, which places your EQ results in general workplace language.

EQ-i 2.0 Leadership Report

You have the option to also request your Leadership Report, which compares your EQ results with other leaders and compares your EQ results with a transformational leadership model. If you work in the area of leadership development you will be very interested in this report.

A Wonderful Course

CoVibrance, Vibrant People Powerful Results

Really enjoyed the EQi 2.0/EQ 360 certification course in Ottawa in February. David did a wonderful job teaching the course and left us feeling that he had exceeded our expectations completely. Also, the other participants were a joy to meet and interact with in the exercises. We look forward to meeting up again sometime soon. We would solidly recommend the course to anyone looking for EQ training.

I have had the pleasure of working with David as well as attending an EQi certification course he facilitated. David’s well honed facilitation skills and level of professionalism are exemplary. His leadership skills and dedication to promoting the understanding of emotional intelligence and his extensive knowledge set him apart in this field. I highly recommend David’s work and ability to inspire.
