Emotional Intelligence Coaching
Build your EQ to match your IQ
The best interactive workshop you’ll do in 2019.
Why would I (as a developer) need to improve my emotional intelligence?
In everything we do, our software is ultimately used by other people – and they use it because it adds value to their work and their lives. Once we see this truth, we start to realise that the most important part of software development is “People over Process” – one of the
core tenets of the Agile Methodology. The best way to work with people is to understand and empathise with them. How do we do that? By first understanding ourselves. These are the core tenets of emotional intelligence.
Why would I (as a developer) invest in an emotional intelligence course?
Technical skills can only take you so far in your personal and professional development. A higher EQ will propel you towards promotion and higher earnings far more effectively. According to Daniel Goleman, the prominent author and researcher, two-thirds of job performance delta between low and high performers is due to emotional intelligence. In leadership positions, this grows to 80%.
Sadly, other developers are spending their time (and money!) only investing in technical skills. Dare to be different and avoid these common pitfalls! If you can become the developer that adds value to the business through human connection, empathy and influence you will
be the developer who gets promoted first. Be the developer who uses emotional intelligence to optimise your current technical skills.
Why should I choose you instead of your competitors or just reading an EQ book?
We personalise our content and workshops to meet your individual needs. We do this by providing a fully interactive learning experience. Our Pillar Leaders EQ Psychometric Test ® gives you the perfect start. We will inform you of your current emotional intelligence score across four EQ pillars. Our expert facilitators will then take the time to answer your specific questions and provide you with a step-by-step approach to boosting your emotional intelligence. After leaving the workshop, you will have a clear road map for development.

assume you’re a human if you’re applying to this course, but if not, then we are an equal
opportunities trainer… *beep boop*.
