Emotional Intelligence Introduction

EQ training develops charismatic, self-empowered & resilient leaders – the skills managers desperately need but are rarely taught.

It inspires and challenges on both an intellectual & emotional level. It’s designed to spark thinking in novel ways & encourage high performance & leadership behaviours that work for life & work.

Training details

Training overview


Emotional Intelligence is just being nice to people, right? Absolutely not.  It’s so much more. Emotions are our key internal feedback mechanism. Emotions indicate, & help us facilitate, change. To make the most of change we need to understand & work with this mechanism.

Emotional intelligence is the capacity to recognise, discern between, work with, manage & express emotions appropriately, in yourself & with others, to support the quality of your thinking & behaviours.  Sometimes called EQ, it helps us understand what’s most important to us, to navigate our lies effectively to perform well & succeed.


Our approach is unique.  This great introduction course educates, inspires, challenges & teaches emotional awareness & management from different key perspectives. Unlike most which still focus somewhat on the cognitive, we teach EQ holistically. We focus on mind-body as well as cognitive-emotional development techniques.

Live Session Logistics


Do you have a pulse? Then this course is for you. In truth, sceptics are often converted on this course, but we’d prefer you to be curious already & ready to see yourself, others & life differently.

Course Length

This course now runs for a full 4 hours. We pack a lot into this seminar. On completion you’ll realise not only how much we cover but also how much more there is to learn leaving with lots of food for thought & practical tips. 1 -4 day tailored in-house courses are also available.

Before & After

Embedding change

To get the most from this training be open, use the comprehensive guide as directed after the session & practice the key tools & techniques daily. Combining this with EQ testing & coaching is the ultimate way to make significant changes you’ll feel, & others will notice.


There is no required pre-reading but you’ll receive a pre-course questionnaire to help you take stock & think about areas you may wish to focus on. Bring this along on the day. But don’t worry you’ll not have to share anything you don’t wish to.

Additional Option: Taking one of our online EQ psychometric assessments will give you a baseline of your EQ attributes which can be developed further with one-2-one coaching & any changes can then easily be monitored going forward.  It’s not necessary for the course but will help embed learning.

Want more comprehensive EQ programmes?

In-depth programmes

Whether you’re looking for introduction EQ courses or more comprehensive programmes, we’ve got you covered.

We run tailored in-house EQ master classes & both in-house & private coaching programmes which take this learning deeper & more closely aligned to your needs.

The ultimate change-maker programme combines this training with EQ testing & coaching. These profound leadership training programmes aim to bring out the skills that matter most for particular roles, people & their teams.

We can actually reveal often complex team dynamics & distil them into easily understandable insights & training programmes. EQ programmes leverage the psychometric tests that we use to uncover exactly what’s needed & also prove what’s improved.  Again, our approach is unique here, by utilising not one but two profound EQ psychometric assessments you & your team uncover both overall personal, as well as detailed social, attributes.

Immediately after the course, something clearly had just clicked. (It was remarkable) a reformed character. He then also went on to gain a new role where he applied EQ concepts and practice and became a much greater pleasure to work with.” Clayton Smith, Head of Transformation, The Land registry.
