If you’re going to select one training with the greatest potential for both personal and professional payoffs, this is it!

Imagine if you could master your emotions & have a positive influence over the emotions of others. How much more effective would you and your team be? Since emotions drive behavior, they may be harnessed to prevent or overcome problems and deliver extraordinary results.

An Emotional Epidemic:

70% of us do not handle conflict or stress effectively, and just 36% understand emotions as they happen. The greatest challenges are at work, where just 15% feel respected and valued by their employers. (Source;TalentSmart)

We live in a time of complexity. Stress is rising. We have incredible technology to communicate, yet people feel isolated. This combination makes people more volatile, more impatient, more likely to fight, flee, or freeze. This makes it harder to solve the real problems we face individually and collectively.

The emotional challenge is growing – around the world, at work, at home. Even children are experiencing greater distress. Maybe once-upon-a-time there was little need to actively learn the skills of emotional intelligence. In this world of growing complexity, however, we all need to develop more insight and skill to handle our own and others emotions effectively. That’s where emotional intelligence comes in.


An ever-growing  body of research is confirming that high Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the best predictor of personal and professional success. It’s no wonder that most Fortune 500 companies and many other businesses are investing in EQ training for their employees. Along with all of the intangible benefits, many see an exponential return on their investment.  Emotional Intelligence is often called “the other kind of smart” and decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack.


Ignoring EQ Has Consequences

“If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far“. -Daniel Goleman / Co-author Emotional Intelligence 2.0

“75 percent of careers are derailed for reasons related to emotional competencies, including inability to handle interpersonal problems; unsatisfactory team leadership during times of difficulty or conflict; or inability to adapt to change or elicit trust.”  -Center for Creative Leadership

Here is what others are saying...


"I have been mulling over what we have learned...For myself it is probably the overview of emotions that stands out most. It really opened my eyes to some that I am still lacking in and (huge key for me) understanding why I am still lacking those from my childhood. The positive emotion brainstorm has been super helpful for me because even though I am lacking "amused and fun-loving or silly", I find my true self loves this kind of thing and is very happy to be allowed out." - Elizabeth

"The biggest lesson that has changed my behavior is the simple domino effect of thoughts producing emotions that are metabolized. It is nothing more than subconscious repetition of self-sabotaging thoughts which keep me in an emotional funk for days on end. Before, I had thought that emotions were capricious, that if I was feeling depressed or joyless for days on end, there was nothing I could do but put on a brave face and toughen through until it passed. I had no concept of slowing down, paying attention to my thoughts, and changing them - or of how quickly emotions can be turned around. I am excited and hopeful for how this will change my thought patterns, in the months ahead." - Hannah

"I am still processing what I have learned. I loved everything about this course, and find myself still processing. Thoughts from it keep resurfacing at times. I am amazed to get a view into another layer of God's  amazing design in creating us, and love how it explains so much about the power we have to influence our own thoughts. If we can observe our thoughts, then we can influence them and shape them. I love the power of this, that rather than being a subject of my emotions and thoughts, I can lead them, and in learning to do this well, lead others." Abigail

"For me it was Challenging Your Defaults. 'Thought is the first level of creation...' I have been challenging my defaults ever since and have noticed a positive influence in my business and personal relationships. My old default was to react instantly. I'd try to fix everything quickly or would internalize. I thought I was fooling people but I wasn't. I've been practicing a short pause to THINK before I react. What I've found is that it gives me a moment to change m defaults and CHOOSE my thoughts. This one is making me a happier person and a better business owner. My decision are more conscious." - Tom
