Emotional Intelligence Coaching

Emotional Intelligence refers to the capacity to blend thinking and feeling to make optimal and effective decisions. In essence, it’s being smarter with feelings.

Emotional intelligence is key to having a successful relationship with yourself and others. Numerous studies have linked emotional intelligence to critical life success factors, such as better effectiveness, relationships, wellbeing and quality of life.
