What is Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the ability to perceive emotions in ourselves and others. It facilitates the learned ability to utilize the appropriate emotions to manifest intended outcomes in different contexts. Practicing EQ helps you to understand how your own reactions create predictable outcomes which are within your control. Having higher EQ helps one accept challenges and adapt to new situations quickly. Upon learning and practicing Emotional Intelligence, you will more easily recover from setbacks and handle situations with a clearer mind and awareness of its causes and potential consequences. You will also have the tools to think resourcefully and adapt to adversities that come with significant stressors faced in the course of the day. 
Leader as Coach
A fundamental function of leaders as coaches is to nurture the strengths and gifts of their charges to perform at optimal levels and stay consistently at high levels. One of the fundamental skills to achieve this is through the art of High Performance Coaching. A high competence in coaching greatly enhances the support and guidance that is needed to raise one’s capacity to achieve much higher level of confidence and performance when using his/her unique gifts. Many leaders tend to prescribe and recommend to others what should be done based on their own achievements, not recognizing that people have a unique brand, style and personality. EQHPC combines a unique blend of diagnosing underlying issues, asking laser questions to trigger “deep seated answers”, setting parameters and strategies to address gaps in performance and then setting a timeline for execution and manifestation of results. Be equipped with a full range of tools to help people find their purpose, passion achieve fulfilment with what they are doing.

The 2 Models We Use

The EQ Competency Framework
The EQ Competency Framework (EQCF) has 9 EQ behaviours that are observable and measurable. The model consists of 3 zones. At the ‘Core’ is Purpose. It forms the bedrock of why we are in this life for. When our direction is clear, our “why” in life bears a deeper meaning and it gives us a clear direction. This is where Passion and Purpose reside. 
The ‘Self’ Zone represents EQ with Self. The four competencies represented are consciousness, emotional management, optimism and self-efficacy. When your purpose is clear, it is important to address the relationship we have with ourselves. In other words, the quality of our thoughts and feelings, how effective we are as a result of how we speak to ourselves and our ability to handle our emotional state and effectiveness at handling tasks. 
The ‘Other’ Zone represents your relationship with others. The four competencies represented are empathy, trust, influence and connection. When we are clear about our direction (Purpose ), have emotionally healthy habits and resourceful thoughts, our relationships with others are harnessed. We are then able to influence and build connections with others which forge long term growth and respect.
The Enneagram 9 Points of VIEW
A powerful feature in this program is the use of the Enneagram and the 9POV profiling tool (9 Points of View). The underpinnings of this research is that you are born into one of 9 distinct types and have traits and qualities of all the styles in varying degrees. The system demonstrates your innate behaviors which explain many of the results and consequences of our decisions and behaviors. The system will clearly explain your style of leading and behaving and is able to detect whether we are functioning from a healthy or unhealthy way of leading. The exercises that follow will make connections to the way we think, make decisions, explain how energetic we are, how much we naturally engage others or prefer to work alone, etc. Most importantly, it teaches you how to get out of the unhealthy box and lead from a style which is grounded, matured and makes healthy connections with others.
