What separates peak performers from the rest?


According to research, Emotional Intelligence:

  • Matters twice as much as technical expertise or IQ

  • Accounts for 67% of the abilities necessary for superior performance

  • Determines the quality of our business and personal relationships 

  • Is directly linked to successful financial performance

Emotional Intelligence is the ability to be aware of our own emotions, to be conscious of the emotions of the people around us, and to manage our emotions effectively in professional and personal relationships, especially when those relationships become difficult.

Move forward faster with executive coaching.

Why work on your own when you can work with an ICF certified Professional Coach and get to where you want to be faster? 

Not all coaching is the same.  ICF certified coaches follow a strict code of ethics and standards designed by the International Coaching Federation.
