Unleash emotional intelligence to work better, together.

When emotions run high, they change the way our brains function, diminishing our basic cognitive abilities, decision-making powers, and even our interpersonal skills. That is why even the most talented people can underperform when faced with triggering relationships, rapid change and disruption, or high-stakes (and high-stress) projects. 

IHHP helps you harness the emotions that stand in the way of building trust, collaboration, and engagement across the organization. We function as an extension of your team, ensuring that your people build the skills of Emotional Intelligence so everyone can perform at their best even during great challenge and change.

Why Investing in Emotional Intelligence Training is Essential

Emotional Intelligence is the key to having a positive impact on your team and organization. It is foundational to developing people, teams, and cultures that can adapt and engage, no matter what challenges are encountered.

In today’s rapidly changing world, organizations need to develop leadership competencies that enable their leaders to proactively respond rather than react and demonstrate the empathy and care for their people that is more essential than ever.

In order to build a workforce that is resilient at all levels, organizations need to invest in emotional intelligence skills like collaboration, decision-making, conflict management, and motivating. This will ensure the organization has the trust, communication, and engagement that will allow people to perform at their best, in any circumstance.

Hallmarks of Emotionally Intelligent Organizations

Organizations with high emotional intelligence have five key qualities that enable people to perform up to their full potential and leaders to extract discretionary effort from teams, even in situations fraught with stress and uncertainty.


Team members trust one another.

Transparency and accountability are pillars of trust. On emotionally intelligent teams, people are open to asking for help, admitting mistakes, and sharing concerns. Team members commit to authentic collaboration, give credit and recognize peers, and communicate often. No need for micromanaging on these teams.


People are able to communicate openly even when the stakes are high.

This is a clear sign of psychological safety. An emotionally intelligent team will be able to take risks in order to innovate and learn. Furthermore, the ability to seek new opportunities, especially in times of uncertainty, is an indicator of the team’s optimism and drive.


Teams are unafraid to take initiative.

This is a clear sign of psychological safety. An emotionally intelligent team will be able to take risks in order to innovate and learn. Furthermore, the ability to seek new opportunities, especially in times of uncertainty, is an indicator of the team’s optimism and drive.


Everyone is able to foster diversity and inclusion.

Emotional intelligence creates three of the core skills required for DE&I: self awareness, empathy and self regulation. Individuals with high EQ are aware of their biases, able to empathize with different people, and able to regulate their emotions and reactions to better manage interactions. This creates an environment where people have a higher regard for diverse groups and are more inclusive.


Curiosity and innovation are common throughout the organization.

If people are consistent in asking thoughtful questions, seeking constructive criticism, and showing patience when listening, the organization likely has a learning culture. Curiosity counters stress and negative thinking, which only increases the resilience of both the individual and the organization.

EI is what’s going to differentiate us as a great leader. It helps us achieve the type of legacy and impact we desire. It’s reassuring to know that EI is a skill we can build and, regardless of where we are on our emotional intelligence abilities, we can always improve. This is a very engaging program from start to finish. The energy was great and I appreciated the amount of preparation

From the perspective of a learning professional, it adds an additional layer to the way I currently speak about emotional intelligence. The metaphors (such as the bridge) that were used during the course were very useful, and the tools were very practical, in terms of how it feels – from an emotional standpoint – how does it feel in your body. I think it’s really helpful, from that perspective, to really dig deeper into emotional intelligence. Overall, I would recommend to people; definitely. I think it’s inherently practical.

I’ve personally seen team members leverage the EQ strategies in high pressure situations and always set the better example as a result.  They are enabled to not to get triggered by people, challenging them to stay calm and come up with innovative solutions more collaboratively.

We’ve seen significant benefits of investing in developing these people skills. The employee populations who experience these programs tend to have higher retention rates, increased performance and even higher promotion rates. I’ve had a number of program participants tell me that the training not only made them a better leader at work but also a better partner/ spouse/ parent/friend etc. – more equipped to navigate the world we live in.
