Social + Emotional Intelligence is about being aware of ourselves and others, in the moment, and using that awareness to manage our behaviors and to manage our relationships with others.
While the concept of emotional intelligence has become more widely understood, many are still somewhat unsure of exactly how it can add to their success in the workplace and in their personal lives.
The truth is, the most successful people have the ability to manage their responses in challenging situations and are intentional about how they interact with others during those times.
Social and emotional intelligence (S+EI or sometimes referred to as EI or EQ) encompasses many skill sets, including stress management, resilience, managing conflict productively, powerful influencing skills, catalyzing change, teamwork and collaboration, building trust and much more. All are essential leadership competencies.
Unfortunately, we see it most when S+EI is lacking – think of the boss who explodes when a deadline is missed, or the co-worker whom no one trusts. These people are limited by their lack of S+EI skills.
The good news? S+EI can be learned and strengthened throughout our lives. It’s never too late to add these essential skills to your career strategy, and research concludes the fastest way to enhance your S+EI skills is through coaching.
We begin with an assessment of S+EI skills. We use the most comprehensive S+EI assessment instrument on the market today, the Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile® . The SEIP® measures the 26 competencies identified as critical in socially and emotionally intelligent individuals, teams and organizations. See the 4-quadrant model below.
The 78-item SEIP® is available in a self report and 360 multi-rater format. This gives us immediate insights into our client’s strengths and potential development needs when it comes to social and emotional intelligence, allowing us to target the most important areas for development first.
Once we have identified strengths and development opportunities in S+EI, we work with our clients to create a development plan for strengthening the areas needed for their role and desired outcomes.
This comprehensive coaching program is guaranteed to quickly enhance our clients’ awareness of themselves and others, and better manage themselves and their relationships with others. Over the course of our coaching engagement, we provide activities and tools to accelerate learning and growth.
In addition to the coaching program, we also offer training in S+EI. We would be happy to facilitate an interactive and highly informative session to introduce the concepts of social and emotional intelligence in your organization. During this time we can also provide participants with their very own Social + Emotional Intelligence Profile® so they can identify their strengths and potential vulnerabilities in S+EI.
Few leaders understand how vital, intelligent, quality conversations are to the health and productivity of a company’s culture. Unhealthy conversations are at the root of relationships characterized by distrust, deceit, betrayal, and avoidance—leading to lower productivity, decreased innovation, and diminished results.
A simple act as "having a conversation" has the potential to build, change or destroy a company’s culture. By learning how conversations trigger different parts of our brain, and how they either catalyze or freeze our brains in protective patterns, we can develop conversation that propel individuals, teams, and organizations toward success.
Since our words are so powerful, we infuse the Conversational Intelligence® framework into our coaching and provide workshops to groups and organizations.
