Stress, anger, frustration, feeling like a victim of circumstance: All this and more can be part of day’s work for the average person. This reality does not come without a cost. In business, unchecked emotions affect customer satisfaction, employee retention, management engagement, leaders' stress level and health…Face it: The lack of emotional mastery in leaders can affect the bottom line in profound ways. Once considered a “soft-skill,” Emotional Intelligence is increasingly being recognized as a key differentiator in the workplace in the 21st century. This training will lay a solid foundation to foster a greater sense of self-leadership and ownership for participants in their businesses (and lives).

Don't mistakenly think this is just about business. After one of my trainings, a man said, "I get this in business...what about with my kids?" Yes, that's where emotions can really affect us. It all seems so personal and so critical, doesn't it? Challenges in our personal lives can leave us stressed out and unable to see clearly through our fog of emotions. As I know all too well, it can be really easy to create wreckage in our relationships when we're in that state. This training will help you navigate those muddy waters.

Ultimately, Emotional Intelligence Essentials teaches the skills of self-leadership...and you take your Self wherever you go.

Laura spoke at our conference and her training was the most useful and inspiring experience of the event. Laura clearly explained the process by which stress occurs and gave us concrete EQ tools to alleviate stress by taking control of our responses to unavoidable daily stimuli. I’ve been using her training ever since and I can attest to its efficacy. Thank you Laura!
