Emotional Intelligence Training & Coaching for Professionals

Learn more about our approach

Our Approach

Blindspots are behaviors in which we engage and of which we are unaware. We all need help identifying our blindspots and course-correcting, because if left unchecked, we ultimately undermine our influence, limit our effectiveness, and damage our relationships!

For years, we have been dedicated to applying strategies and building solutions that help professionals, businesses, and leaders increase their self-awareness and grow their Emotional Intelligence (EI). The result is men and women enjoying deeper relationships, with more fulfilling interactions, who are leading more productive teams.

Here is how we make that happen:


Dynamic speaking engagements built around unleashing influence through emotional intelligence. Keynotes are delivered as stand-alone engagements or as part of an on-going series. We introduce your team and organization to Emotional Intelligence and help you develop a framework for self-awareness.

Training Environments

Interactive learning environments that help you and your team develop the necessary techniques for identifying undermining tendencies and becoming healthier leaders. In these large group sessions we collaborate to develop personalized growth plans and make the move from self-awareness to self-management.

Coaching Cohorts

Intentional communities gathering to learn and discover how to build healthy teams, culture, and relationships. We work together in a small group setting to become leaders worth following, who build teams worth leading, and shape cultures that last. Additionally, each session helps you understand how to deploy Emotional Intelligence in every aspect of your life (family, friends, peers, coworkers, and community).

Executive Coaching

Customized coaching that takes our core lessons and learnings and applies them directly to your specific team, culture, and circle of influence. These individual sessions are designed to tackle live-issues and help you avoid undermining tendencies. We work with you to maximize your influence and equip you to reproduce healthy leadership as a leader who is built to last.
