Emotional Intelligence

The key to the life you want... Most people think IQ is the best predictor of success - But that’s simply not true.


Most people think IQ is the best predictor of success but that’s simply not true. You can be a god-like genius but if you don’t know how to manage your thoughts and internal dialogue you’ll hold yourself back.  

Emotional Intelligence is a skill or a set of skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain relationships, cope with challenges, and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way that helps us achieve our goals.

Don’t make this up…...

Although you don’t need assessments to have Emotional Intelligence coaching I use the EQ-i 2.0® to help you improve your performance. It’s a psychometric assessment which measures your emotional intelligence and how it can impact people and your work. It’s been rigorously tested and validated which means we get a robust and accurate baseline for your development. We can re-run the assessment at the end to measure your success.


These can be stand-alone or incorporated into holistic coaching sessions to help you achieve your goals.
