Training details


Why EQ?

People ask: Why do we need a few days ‘just’ to learn EQ?  And therein lies the challenge. Once you experience the first hour of training you’ll likely never need persuading again about how fundamental EQ skills are to all areas of life & work.

EQ skills sit firmly at the heart of effective leadership. Research* reflects that at least 80% of success in a leadership role is down to EQ skills. This should not be surprising when we understand that emotions drive our awareness & facilitate our values & behaviours. EQ development naturally builds all-round human performance & well-being.

Attitude & Buy-in

These workshops can be game-changers to management teams & cultures. But we need you to buy-in & preferably your organisation’s leaders. Cultures are a reflection of, and created through, the behaviours of the most senior & influential people.  We can help you leverage your internal early adopters & champions to bring EQ to your organisation.  They best understand, so are able to motivate, their colleagues, to take part in this powerful culture-change programme.

Course structure

These courses typically run from around 2- 5 days in length or can be broken down into half/days running close in time over several days or perhaps weeks. The core elements are outlined here.


Everything we think, say and do happens through the filter of our self-awareness;
We cover key areas of emotional awareness & how we build this:

• Exploring emotions – why they’re so important
• Motivating ourselves & others
• How emotions drive behaviours
• Continuous self-calibration & feedback
• Exploring core values – bringing out the best in self/others

Body & Mind

Our bodies & minds are linked more than most realise. We help you understand this & build connection.

• Body & Mind connection–experiencing & understanding the neuroscience


Calming & thus managing ourselves effectively enables not only ‘vision’ but connection to all key ei elements. For instance, this allows people to support & work well with others too.

• Importance of self-management
• Breathing techniques
• Uncovering our HOT buttons
• Building positive mind-set & experiences


Most communication has little to do with words – we’ll show you what real communication is;

• Rapport-building using NLP
• Reading emotions in faces & voice
• Understanding our effect on others
• Learning to ‘magically’* read people’s preferred learning & communication styles

* – Ok so it’s not magic, just powerful

Embedding Learning

EQ Tests

Participants take EQ psychometric assessments well before the sessions. Their EQ scores are analysed & their profiles created. These can be either presented & worked on during workshops or afterwards in confidential one-2-one sessions where they are carefully taken through their results & create a development plan.

Master classes can utilise development activities which are either based on core EQ training modules or designed specifically tailored to participant’s personal & group scores & EQ dynamics.  This approach is highly effective at pin-pointing needs & developing teams with exactly what they need.
Our comprehensive on-line EQ assessments look at both overall (EQ-i ® 2.0) & relationship skills (A.R.T.) respectively, something virtually no other EQ consultancy does.

Confidentiality & Sharing

Please note this is a fun, highly engaging & experiential programme, certainly not lectures or lessons in dry theory; far from it.  They are held in a confidential, supportive environment with both personal & group activities.  People do not have to share personal information unless previously agreed & sessions are carefully designed & organised to accommodate sensitivities & needs.  It’s essential we discuss in advance exactly how the workshop will work & take in detailed understanding of groups & contexts.

Included: Comprehensive branded EQ Guide. This hard-bound workbook is excellent for learning, practice, notes & further development. Engagement & pre-course questionnaires may also be used which build commitment, look at well-being & encourage attendees to buy-in, & engage both during & after sessions.
