The top ten employment skills are emotional intelligence skills

“Overall, social skills— such as persuasion, emotional intelligence and teaching others—will be in higher demand across industries than narrow technical skills, such as programming or equipment operation and control. In essence, technical skills will need to be supplemented with strong social and collaboration skills.” – World Economic Forum


What a great asset this tool is for us to be successful in service to our clients

I thought too – it was just an exceptional group to work with. I found the way this was presented and the interactive nature of this really beneficial and the breakout groups, and opportunity to practice with each other, I thought there was a great spirit of enthusiasm and engagement and mutual support in that environment. So I really, really relish that piece of the exercise. And, you know, less lecture style was really effective and meaningful for me. And I’m looking forward to it.You know, it’s really built my confidence in, a, taking the exam and then secondly, really keen and anxious to get out and start utilizing the tool as well, both by way of the individual but also the group which will be focussed in on next week, which I’m attending as well. And what a great asset this tool is for us to be successful in service to our clients.

Very grateful for what I have gained/learnt

It is very rare that I walk away from a training program feeling “light”, that some weight has been lifted off my shoulder. The three days we spent together did that and more: It helped lift a weight I did not even know I was carrying. Thank you! I remain very grateful for what I have gained/learnt thus far and look forward to its impact on both my personal and professional life.

Transformative learning experience

Participating in the EQ-i 2.0 / EQ 360 certification course was a transformative learning experience! I appreciated the experiential activities that had us interpreting assessments and demonstrating the components of effective feedback and debrief best practices. Each day surpassed my expectations of the workshop providing incredible insight into how emotions and their impact influence various aspects of our lives! This was truly a fabulous course!!!”

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.

David Teed


Thank you very much for the amazing job you did leading the EQ-i 2.0/360 training last week in Toronto. I have been to MANY training sessions in my career, and yours was by far the best. Quite honestly, I am still somewhat ‘deer in the headlights’ in terms of the material, but I am a huge fan of anything that forces us to dig a little deeper. It was quite epiphanous for me, both personally and professionally.

Impressed with course content and facilitation

Wayne Townsend

I just finished the EQ-i course and am in the middle of the 360 Feedback. I really enjoyed hearing and seeing David Cory in action both in the three day training certification course and in the three hour phone conference. I am most impressed with how David handles the course content and the facilitation of the various questions that come from the participants. I am looking forward to using the resources and training provided with both my companies and the contacts derived from the connectivity. Presently, these two companies Peer Mentor and Faith Mentor are about mentoring, coaching and leadership training which directly involves emotional intelligence. The concepts developed and shared by David will be most useful as I link with other companies and leadership around the world. Thank you David.

Excellent balance of theory, science and practical applications

Todd Kettner, PhD Psychology

I just wanted to say thanks for a fantastic workshop! I really enjoyed the EI course which re-inspired me on a number of levels – personally, relationally and professionally. The many positive comments that participants were making to each other during lunch and coffee breaks is a measure of just how good this training was. David’s ability to present on EI with a deep respectful interpersonal presence and gentle humor made the hours fly by. Even though I came to the workshop with a solid background knowledge of emotional intelligence, this course’s excellent balance of theory, science and practical applications stretched me even further.
