Change your life with emotional intelligence


Show up at your best. Everyday. No matter what.

You get up every morning intending to show up at your best. You want to be the best partner, parent, colleague, leader, and friend you can be.

No matter what your intentions are though, something gets in the way. You are not able to manage your emotions and communicate effectively – something goes wrong. It is so easy to become stuck or get derailed.

It may even feel like you are never reaching your full potential. You can change this and we can help you.

This program was very engaging and very interactive.  It  was all very professional and when you’re dealing with emotions, there’s a connection with the people. I love that; it worked really well for me. It  felt like everybody else did, too.- I feel like our class should have a reunion! After the class I felt very motivated and excited about what I learned.

The breakout groups worked out really well. I was impressed by the Zoom platform to accommodate fully functional breakouts. Overall, the program felt really fluid and synergistic, even though we were all in different locations.  The participants were engaged, and it was great to have a host monitoring the chats.

What You’ll Learn in Each Module

Module 1: Self-Awareness

In this module you will learn why Emotional Intelligence is a key driver of success – both professionally and personally. You will build your self-awareness by understanding the brain science of emotions and you’ll be able to describe how your amygdala becomes hijacked. You will learn to identify your triggers and default behaviors under pressure, and how that impacts your decision-making, cognitive ability and behavior.

Module 2: Managing Emotions Under Pressure

In this module you will learn how to manage your emotions more skillfully when there is tension, conflict and pressure. You will learn the S.O.S.S. strategy, which IHHP co-developed with the U.S. Navy, and participate in activities to help you develop your own S.O.S.S. strategy. You will learn how to recognize when you are under pressure, so that you can apply the strategy, and show up at your best when it matters most.

Module 3: Emotional Connection

In this module you will learn what it means to truly connect to the emotions that drive the behavior of others. You will understand how to connect to their perspective, and learn how to help them manage their own emotions in high stake situations by applying strategies that re-engage the prefrontal cortex. These strategies will help you build inclusive and agile teams, and get the best performance from the people you lead – at work and at home!

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.

This program has participants raving – But don’t just believe us,

check out what a recent participant had to say about our live online program.

Virtual Delivery 

“This program was packaged (2 hours over 3 days) just right for a person like me who’s really busy in a big company with a million things to do.  Two hours a day allows you to immerse yourself in the learning and balance your work and family priorities.”

“I really enjoyed the virtual program as it was very different. There was a personal touch, where the facilitator and participants are willing to get in front of the camera, because of that, when you’re actually in it you get that sense that you can do it. You’re committed to the other participants; they’ve seen your face. It helps people stay in the game. The facilitator was excellent and was able to keep people engaged and feeling they were in this together.”

Who should take this program? 

“What I love about it, is that it is a good fit for a number of different size organizations and types of organizations. Anyone and everyone could benefit from this program. This program would be a steal for any professional who wanted to invest in themselves and develop the skill of emotional intelligence. The virtual delivery format would suit anyone in an organization. Where the rubber really meets the road would be mid level managers, those who engage with people every day.”

The Science of Emotional Intelligence 

The program goes deep enough into the concepts where individuals or teams can grasp the emotional intelligence skills that they need to show up to be their best selves. This is a program that I can absolutely see bringing behaviour change  – change that comes from within. With all of the changes going on now in areas like IT, emotional intelligence may be the best tool to have in your toolbox at this time.”
