As a coach, OD consultant, leadership development or HR professional, you do what you do for the possibility of making a meaningful difference in the experiences of individuals, teams and organizations. You are willing to take personal risk for the benefit of your client’s growth. You have the skills, tools and training that other professionals have and you are ready to stand out from the crowd by extending an offering with transformational potential for your clients.


Perhaps the single most critical aspect of our clients’ success at work, their health and well-being at home is their relationships. And certainly their most important relationship is the one they have with themselves. But how do we come to understand how this most crucial aspect of our client’s lives operates? How do we learn our clients' triggers and the habituated internal response that follows? How do we come to understand something so hidden and opaque, yet so vitally important for our clients’ lives, especially when they can’t tell us?


That’s why we created the EQ Profile and EQ Certification Training.

EQ and Relational Intelligence


As coaches, we have a variety of tools to help our clients see their behavior and impact on others more clearly. But how do we hold up the mirror to our client’s internal experience, especially when it’s largely outside of their own awareness? How do we help our clients see the common denominator of what’s not working in their lives, when they can’t see it, don’t want to see it and don’t have a language for it?


The EQ Profile was designed to do just that! The EQ Profile captures what goes on inside of each of us in an interpersonal conflict. It captures our conditioned internal responses that inform and motivate our behavior. It reveals the patterns that drive our actions in ways that feel “right” to us in the moment and turn out being destructive for us over time.


We created the EQ Profile to reveal what we don't know and can’t see about ourselves. Because when we are aware of our habituated patterns, we can bring more conscious choice to them and we can change them and our relationships and in doing so, our lives. We don’t have to live out the “default settings”, created by those in our past when we had no choice of our own. We can live a life of conscious choice supported by new awareness generated by the EQ Profile.
