Emotional Intelligence experts
Our goal is for you to bring your best to work. So many organisational and people issues result directly from poor Emotional Intelligence. Let us be your guide, your partner to reveal & improve where needed most & so build powerfully engaging cultures. Whether your goals relate to effective leadership, high sustainable performance, exceptional relationships or wellbeing, EQ works.
Why we’re different
Specialists in EQ coaching & development since 2006, whilst many others see EQ as simply an add on.
In-depth corporate experience including management consultancy, change-management & finance.
Research & development of EQ assesment tools, such as the outstanding social EQ assessment, The A.R.T.
Very few coaching consultancies combine psychological, consultancy, financial & EQ testing expertise. This rare mix means we’re uniquely placed to understand high performance & your needs from all key perspectives.
Tailored to you
We’re able to offer the ideal EQ learning experience for you from insightful keynotes to profound culture-change programmes by putting together the right mix of components to best suit your needs.
We test, explain, analyse & develop critical human attributes proven to create success. Our training programmes are designed to teach the techniques, skills, behaviours & mind-set of high performance. We offer not one but two comprehensive EQ assessments revealing your overall EQ, using the EQ-i 2.0 & more granular social skills using the A.R.T. No-one else offers these. We’re simply better equipped to help you.
Emotionally Intelligent process
We put you first. We start & end with your goals, needs, issues & most relevant contexts using our unique Training Needs Analysis approach. We then adapt our approach & language to your preferences & sensitivities.
Breath, depth & balance
Our approach is eclectic, pragmatic & flexible, encompassing psychological (NLP, Mindfulness, Positive Psychology), research-based (Resilience, 6 Pillars, A.R.T.), leadership (Coaching) & business expertise (Consulting, Branding).
We focus on balance, with one eye on the wider context of well-being & one on your success. EQ development is naturally holistic.
Our values and beliefs

He developed a deep understanding & appreciation of how organisations manage change, use technology & develop their people, functions and processes to work best together. On realising that the ultimate resource, people skills, matter much more than technical or IQ skills, Philip intensified his focus on using human-change management to facilitate high performance & change.
