Our Mastery Program - Leading with Emotional Intelligence - does more than scratch the surface.  This program helps you gain a profound self-awareness by digging deep into understanding why you do what you do, without judgements or criticism.   

This powerful personal insight can literally dissolve lifelong roadblocks to growth and change, amplifying your strengths and giving you the tools to manage the hurdles life throws are you, clearing the path for your true potential to emerge.

You will walk away and finally commit to removing the barriers that are preventing you from being the leader you have always dreamed of.  

Being an exceptional leader begins with having a clear understanding of yourself, and your emotional makeup. With this acumen, it gives you space to consciously choose appropriate and effective actions to lead in your organization.  

In this Mastery Program, we work through the EQ-i 2.0 model developed by Multi-Health Systems consisting of 15 emotional intelligence competencies within five composite scales - Self Perception, Self Expression, Interpersonal, Decision Making, and Stress Management.  

Leading with Emotional Intelligence is a comprehensive leadership program that takes you through 34 video lessons, exercises, homework activities, and knowledge checks throughout to test comprehension to ensure an all-inclusive learning and developmental experience that stays with you well beyond this training program.
