When change is constant, learning is the ultimate skill.
Since an organization's success is a result of its employees, having the right people is paramount. The "right people" arrive via hiring and accelerate via development.
An individual is hired for a job due to the a hiring manager (1) seeing that individual's work history and (2) estimating that individual's future promise. The future promise is held as organizational expectations of the employee. The more demanding and intelligent the organization, the higher the expectations are for its employees.
Organizational expectations are formed from pressures including customer feedback, board directives, staff requests, competition, and self imposed goals at all levels. Employee performance must constantly meet or exceed the organization's expectations to achieve high levels of functionality and morale. Employees earn the right to be in an organization, ultimately, from their individual performance levels. So what are the most effective behaviors and traits that drive personal performance in a work environment?
"I've never experienced any training for our organization as incredible as this. The depth and thought that went into every part of every employee's coaching was nothing short of amazing."

Turning smart concepts into effective production is not a given from any training. For an individual to change and make that change habitual, it requires emotionally intelligent coaching, because behavioral research shows that all of our actions are critically effected by our ability to manage and harness our emotions. EQ coaching focuses on understanding internal perceptions and triggers (i.e. responses to stimuli) about how work tasks, environment, customers, colleagues, and oneself are perceived. Emotionally intelligent coaching is change management at an individual level.
Psychologically transformative development provides the longest lasting change in our brains by addressing roots of perceptions and behaviors. Individual EQ development has been proven most effective via one-on-one coaching work, not group sessions.
Who they are is hired. Who they will become is learned.
Emotionally intelligent coaching is designed to:
- Establish understanding and agreement about why coaching is a useful option
- Illuminate relevant beliefs and behaviors that impact personal or team achievement
- Provide understanding around alternative beliefs and behaviors for new results
- Build new habituated behaviors
- Show the results of how these new behaviors influence group dynamics and self
