To build emotionally intelligent individuals and organizations.
EI is the intersection where cognition and emotion meet. It makes possible our capacity for resilience, motivation, empathy, reasoning, stress management, communication, and our ability to read and navigate a wide range of social situations and conflicts.
Emotional Intelligence often matters more than IQ, and when cultivated, affords one the opportunity to realize a more fulfilled and happy life.
I've been in leadership roles from a young age. Whether those roles were leading myself, or leading others, each of them required emotional intelligence skills. I was 24 when I understood just how much, and that's when the tables began to turn.
What others truly needed from me was:
to show up authentically,
to mentor and guide them,
to listen to understand,
to connect with compassion,
to be flexible while asserting my beliefs,
to consider all perspectives fairly,
to set aside my emotions while deciding the next course of action,
to lead through change with insight, and
to create spaces for innovation and learning.
What is demanded by those we lead, is our EQ. When we develop those skills, talent quotient (TQ) grows exponentially. This has led to my personal brand:
There is no place that this is more evident than in leadership.
I build Emotionally Intelligent Organizations because I am an advocate for emotionally intelligent leadership that paves the way for organizations that are human first, human centered, human focused.
It is only when we can manage the whole of our humanity that we can tap into the excellence that exists within each of us.
