Emotional Intelligence
Strategies to Enhance Professional Performance

Emotionally intelligent people communicate effectively, form strong relationships and create powerful coping strategies; emotionally unintelligent people don’t—no matter how high their IQs. Emotional Intelligence can be measured—more reliably and less controversially than IQ—and, unlike IQ, it can be substantially strengthened and developed.  


The Emotionally Effective Leader


Leveraging results from leaders’ EQ-i 2.0® Leadership Reports, participants of this session will learn the importance of emotional intelligence in effective leadership and leave with a better understanding of their strengths and areas to develop to enhance leadership skills, as well as an action plan on how to increase effectiveness.


Train the Trainer

This fast-moving, interactive course delivers a framework for training potential instructors or subject matter experts equipping them with the basic skills needed to train others in their organizations.



Competency Development

Competencies are individual characteristics including knowledge, skills, abilities, self-image, traits, mindsets, and ways of thinking, which, when used with the appropriate roles, achieve desired results.

In other words, competency models define what performance success looks like.


Applications of a competency model include:

  • Recruitment

  • Performance management

  • Training

  • Career development

  • Succession planning

  • Workforce planning
