Imagine the body – you, your team, your organisation – as a complex machine.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the oil that lets the machine run smoothly. It reaches every working part, reduces friction and prevents breakdowns.
Surprisingly, research shows that IQ or technical skills account for only 6% of our success – while EQ accounts for a sizeable 35%. But the real real eye-opener is that for Leaders 66% of their success is attributable to their use of EQ.
Science suggests IQ is hard wired and very difficult to improve, but EQ responds well to Coaching. The benefits go beyond the workplace too. We know EQ Coaching boosts general happiness, mental and physical health, while also reducing levels of the stress hormone, cortisol.
A kind of soft power for the whole body.
