Emotional Intelligence

Mastery is the result of consistent effort over time; challenging the self to grow beyond the comfort zone of yesterday.

This is an evolution of the self, with mastery in the 5 realms and 15 skills of emotional intelligence.

Transformation results in a life by design with purpose and meaning at its center. EQ skills become integrated into the self as simply part of who and how you are.

30-Day Challenge for Well-being

These are opportunities for learning in a social environment, with and from others, while being guided by me into the through the content of emotional intelligence and it's applications to you and your life!


This opportunity has allowed me to take a good hard look at myself and work on myself so that I can have greater levels of confidence. I learned that it’s important for me to work toward a greater level of well-being because that is directly related to my confidence. When I’m confident, I am just better all around. During the coaching sessions I learned exercises to do that which helped me to further understand myself, my emotions, and how those were influencing my performance. I’ve been able to apply strategies on the job that have had positive results; dropping pre-conceived emotions that were getting in the way of problem solving and dialogue. I’ve noticed that I’ve been able to do these much better; before I would get stuck. This has been a great investment of my time.

I work in a performance-based job where the decisions of my team and myself directly impact the profitability of my company. After years of running a successful business, I found myself constantly reminding my team of the value of investing in yourself.

Reading, podcasts, seminars and courses were already part of my routine so I wanted to work with a professional who wouldn’t tip toe around but instead challenge me to build my emotional intelligence.

I couldn’t be more grateful to have the opportunity to work with Teresa, whether it be work performance, personal and family growth or social events, emotional intelligence has had such an important role in my personal development, my professional success, and my future goals.
