Jun 18, 2020

Reading time 3 min.

Emotional Intelligence is one’s ability to understand and manage their own emotions as well as those of others. If you know what you are feeling, what your emotions mean and how they can affect other people, it means that you have a high degree of emotional intelligence.

Becoming emotionally intelligence can be even more important than having a high IQ because we live in a society where we are constantly faced with having to communicate - interviews, meetings, conversations. In other words, your ability to interact with others may determine your success in life.

We made this list of some amazing people specialising in Emotional Intelligence to help you find a credible source where you can get the information on how to increase your EQ.

1. Daniel Goleman


Daniel Goleman is literally the star of EQ. He coined the term and wrote a bestselling book Emotional Intelligence. He is definitely the best person in the world to follow if you are interested in becoming more emotionally intelligent.

Also, if you are an aspiring coach, Daniel has his Emotional Intelligence Coaching Certification Program. The program is in-depth, akin to a professional degree, and is intended for coaches or those interested in coaching for Emotional Intelligence. It draws upon evidence-based behavioral change theory, positive psychology, unconscious bias, compassion training, neuroscience, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Techniques, and Emotional & Social Intelligence. Students will be trained in these concepts and applications, as well as in a defined coaching philosophy they will practice with clients.

Wellness Coaching
$20 USD
50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.
