Unlocking Emotional Intelligence

Being Smarter with Feelings

“Emotional intelligence, more than any other factor, more than I.Q. or expertise, accounts for 85% to 90% of success at work… I.Q. is a threshold competence. You need it, but it doesn’t make you a star. Emotional intelligence can.” – Warren Bennis

This applied workshop employs the 6 seconds model to turn EQ theory into practice for your personal and professional life. This model of EQ-in-Action begins with three important pursuits: to become more aware (noticing what you do), more intentional (doing what you mean), and more purposeful (doing it for a reason).


Clearly seeing what you feel and do. Emotions are data, and these competencies allow you to accurately collect that information.


Doing what you mean to do. Instead of reacting “on autopilot,” these competencies allow you to proactively respond.


Doing it for a reason. These competencies allow you to put your vision and mission into your daily action, so you lead on purpose and with full integrity.

“Under” the three pursuits live eight specific, learnable, measurable competencies.
