This program enlists the foundational skills in emotional intelligence: impulse control and emotional self-awareness. By expanding one's proficiency in these skills, individuals begin to master themselves, their emotions, and their impact on others which positively influences trust, psychological safety, motivation, and performance.


There is a direct relationship between emotional wellbeing and performance. This relationship is known to all of us as we recognize that when we are in emotions of un-wellness, we find it difficult to engage our intelligence, make wise decisions, control our impulses, think creatively, address difficult problems with sensitivity, hold others accountable, or enrich relationships. In states of un-wellness we also 'beat up' on ourselves, allowing internal narrative to be a harsh critic of ourselves, others, and circumstances. This program focuses on the 4 key emotional intelligence for wellbeing: self-regard, self-actualization, interpersonal relationships, and optimism. By elevating proficiency in these skills, individuals learn how to actively create emotional wellbeing which directly leads to optimal performance; freeing up the individual to access their intellect, attributes, and skills.


Empathy is highly sought after for cultures of psychological safety. It is within these environments that individuals do their best work as they are free from the repercussions of a lack of trust...fear. Under the influence of fear, individuals, teams, and organizations fall victim to blame rather than solutions, shame rather than confidence, sabotage rather than teaming, avoidance rather than accountability. This program focuses specifically on deep development of the skill of Empathy and it's emotional intelligence partners: emotional self-awareness, reality testing, and emotional expression.

“The 30-day program facilitated by Teresa Quinlan was an excellent experience that has had a deep impact on my life and will continue to for years to come. Learning more about emotional intelligence and gaining an awareness of how my emotions are impacted each day was very powerful. From this challenge, I came away with a journaling routine that has added great value to my life already, and a deeper understanding of what is working, what isn't, and what I can do to course correct to live a life filled with joy. 
Thank you, Teresa, for sharing your knowledge with us. I highly recommend this program!”

Emotional Intelligence in Today’s Workplace

As professionals, human skills are the most sought after skills in the workplace. They allow us to flourish through all circumstances, with all individuals, no matter the day, time, environment. This interactive sessions addresses the ever pressing questions "What is emotional intelligence, how do we get it, and why does it matter so much?" Every participant will walk away with a clear understanding of what emotional intelligence is and 2 EI strategies for their self-awareness and self-management.

Emotional Fortitude and High Performance

We are all living in a time of fast pace, do it now, do it better, get to the finish line in the least amount of time, under budget, and with everyone smiling. Or at least we hope everyone can be smiling. The truth is, without emotional fortitude, we often don't cross the finish line and more often, lose people along the way. This far-reaching talk by Teresa Quinlan gets to the heart of how we develop emotional fortitude at any age and apply that directly to our performance capabilities. Furthermore, this talk taps into the power of emotional intelligence to lead others; the most important skill to navigating the every-changing landscape of people. All participants will walk away with 2-3 strategies for stress management, self-actualization, empathy, and flexibility to enhance their emotional intelligence and leadership effectiveness.

Leadership Excellence – Beyond the Title

Psychological safety is a buzz word used too often without understanding of exactly what it takes to establish a culture rich with trust. Every workplace, and every employee within that workplace, deeply desires an environment in which they can be authentic, capitalize on their skills, and be seen and heard. In this comprehensive session, every participant will hear what it's like to lead without a title; the characteristics of leadership excellence to influence anyone, anytime, anywhere. Each participant will leave this session with an understanding of the foundation of psychological safety from 3 pillars of emotional intelligence: empathy, assertiveness, and interpersonal relationships.

*Custom keynote presentations available.

"We asked Teresa to give a Lunch and Learn presentation on the basic tenets of EQ to our company. We weren't sure what to expect or how useful it would be for us but as soon as Teresa and I connected, we knew it would be worthwhile. We learned many valuable tools that we will most certainly utilize going forward. Teresa offers incredible value with her speaking presentations and if you're looking for someone to help your team with EQ, I would highly recommend Teresa. She is personable, approachable, honest and very down to earth. A wonderful presenter for any type of work environment and/or team."
