“Showing up as a leader means being even more comfortable in your own skin as the self-awareness journey allows you to stand loud in your authenticity, be empathetic, and exemplary all at the same time. There will be pressure, but you were built for this!"

emotional intelligence

Emotional intelligence (EQ) plays a vital role in leadership, professional and personal success. Today organizations recognize the importance of EQ in inclusion, modern-day leadership, communication, team collaboration, and managing relationships with colleagues and clients.


Strong emotional intelligence can positively impact professional relationships with colleagues, and personal relationships family, friends, spouses and partners.

We want to recognize that beginning to reflect on your potential or your team's potential is a significant first step
