What do you mean with EQ ?

EQ is the emotional quotient, a (notional) measure of a person’s adequacy in such areas as self-awareness, empathy, and dealing sensitively with other people.

According to science, Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is a set of emotional and social skills that collectively establish how well we perceive, and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges, and use information in an effective and meaningful way. EQ is not a measure of cognitive intelligence (IQ), professional aptitude, vocational interest or personality preferences.

Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is a higher predictor for success in life than IQ, therefore you need both. You can have a sharp mind, but without common sense in navigating human interaction, you are likely to become isolated in life. IQ allows you to enter the elevator, but it is your emotional intelligence that fuels your elevator’s upward trajectory.

Why is EQ so important in life?

In the digital age where disruptive technologies such Artificial Intelligence are bound to replace many of the human cognitive functions (e.g., your intellectual capacity in your brain), EQ is the one thing which every single human being can develop, navigate and maximize.  Humans are not machines; we do have emotions and research shows that we can’t control triggering of our emotions. Managing those same emotions in both our professional and personal life, is fundamental for our overall wellbeing.

An elusive reality is to believe that we should be happy and perfect all the time. A better reality is to learn and navigate both your positive and negative emotions through enhanced self-awareness and better self-management.

Developing your EQ will help you manage your energy, cope with pressures and demands in your lives, such as stress, dealing with change and transitions, developing healthy relationships with people and possessing the tools and coping mechanisms so you can thrive in life.

Why should I work with you?

Well, because I am a remarkable, kind, passionate and funny human being. No…not convinced? Ok, I get it. There are so many coaches who claim to change lives, and many of them do so perhaps.

I help diverse professionals across the globe to leverage their emotional intelligence and navigate life in all areas. When we are fulfilled at a personal level, we will thrive at a professional level. And vice versa. Well-being is the sum of all parts in life.

I won’t tell you HOW to live your life, because this is your journey. Instead, I will help you navigate the obstacles in your life and on your terms. By recognising, understanding and processing both your negative and positive emotions, I will help you be in a much better position to achieve your desired outcomes in life.

Ok, I am interested. But I still want to learn more about your credentials and experiences. Where can I find this?

Sure, check out my biography…


How are you going to help me?

What’s my silver bullet? You are. I am going to help you discover yourself, discover your character strengths, discover what comes naturally to you by developing and maximizing your emotional intelligence.

I don’t do one-size-fits-all, because I believe each human being is uniquely talented and gifted. During our Discovery Session, we will discuss your primary objective for coaching. If you think I can help you, then you will have my complete devotion and support to unlock your best version.

On the flip-side, if I feel I am not the right fit for you, I will discuss this with you, and recommend a different coach or approach. Honesty and integrity are at the core of building trust with my clients and is at the heart of my practice.

A snapshot of some examples of how I can help you..

  • Navigating your transitions in life after divorce, loss of loved one, loss of job, or any other major change in your life;
  • Recover from burnout  and help you manage and balance your energy across all areas in your life wheel;
  • Navigating your career by becoming aware of your character strengths, personality type and by leveraging and maximizing your emotional intelligence;
  • Helping you set well-formed outcomes through a unique way of goal setting by leveraging your emotional intelligence;
  • Navigating and transforming your limiting beliefs (e.g. lack of confidence, I am not good enough, I have no experience, etc.) and provide you with new empowering behaviours to go after your dreams;
  • Navigating your networking and influencing skills and help you build lasting professional and personal relations (e.g. non-violent communication, intercultural communication and collaborative communication).

I just want to test my emotional intelligence…

I don’t really need coaching, but I am very interested in assessing my EQ. Tell me more!

Emotional intelligence is assessed through a scientifically tested and validated framework, which is the EQ-i 2.0 model. Your assessment can help you better understand your own emotions and those of people around you. After our feedback session, I can help you develop a strategy and action plan to balance out all of the Emotional Intelligence elements so you are better equipped to navigate complex situations in your professional and personal life.

Those people who have taken the assessment and worked on a development plan report healthier relationships with their loved ones, family, friends, and colleagues; increased capacity to deal with stress at the workplace and in developing critical soft-skills such as resiliency, empathy, managing their unconscious bias and fostering collaborative communication.

That’s all very well, but how can I trust your credibility and the assessment’s accuracy and validity?

I am a certified EQ-i 2.0 Coach, and I provide my clients with emotional intelligence assessments and feedback. Hold on a second…what is the EQ-i 2.0 model?

The EQ-i 2.0 model of Emotional Intelligence is comprised of sixteen specifically defined components of your socio-emotional functioning, each of which plays a critical role in your personal and professional effectiveness. Rooted in extensive psychological and behavioral research, the EQ-i 2.0 is a tool that enables you to quantify these behaviors, comparing yourself to a selected norm group and showing how your behavior differs from others around you.

Unlike many other assessments made up of right and wrong answers or that seek to measure skill and ability, the EQ-i 2.0’s results require interpretation and context. The result is a deep dive into a model and vocabulary for self-awareness that reveals potential strengths and growth opportunities. Whereas IQ (e.g., your brain’s intelligence) and “personality” assessment scores tend to be unchanging, EQ-i 2.0 results not only can change, but should, with maturity, development, and skill-building.

That’s where I come in, and help you navigate your emotional toolbox so that you can thrive in both your professional and personal environment.
