I’ve had the pleasure of working with Teresa, in the lEQdership program, over 12 months and she was able to make a clear impact right from the beginning. Teresa has had a profound effect on my ability to be the best version of myself as a leader.
I am humbled enough to know that my leadership style is one that is continually evolving, and despite previous successes, I welcome the dynamics because I don’t ever want to become a relic. My goal, walking into working with Teresa, was to be as open to the feedback as possible and to experiment with consistent action. I feel confident that I met that goal and I know that this mentality opened my eyes to bettering myself for those I directly or indirectly lead.
As I alluded to, I am grateful to have spent time with Teresa and I hope to continue that journey. The level of mental clarity I have now when walking into tough conversations far surpasses where I was as a leader previously. Her sessions will be a big part of our future success. My message to anyone who may be considering becoming a mentee of Teresa’s coaching is this: Rest assured that it is time well spent and if you go into it with an open-mind and are willing to self-reflect, look at things in a new light, it will allow you to become a better version of yourself. I can validate from experience.

Teresa attended a senior management meeting at our company to present the idea and the concept of her program. The concept of Emotional Intelligence training was new to us as typically our focus on training is production/output, not coaching/leadership/mentorship.
Since the training began it has been very refreshing as it has brought a new dynamic to the group. We spoke openly about our EQ report findings, we see the positive and negative aspects of the feedback and do address each others’ characteristics more head on.
Personally, I have found the program and follow up coaching sessions to be very beneficial. The feedback from the report was good and with Teresa’s assistance to review it provided some great insight into experiences that impact my responses and behaviours. I have found that with small changes and information gained from the coaching sessions with Teresa I have been able to make changes to balance out my management/leadership style and achieve quite quick results. It has helped me to evaluate situations accurately and get better results.
Overall it has been a great investment for the group and leadership of the company.
