You made an investment of time and money to attend EQ Profile Certification. Are you using what you learned?  

Maybe not and that’s OK. It can be a lot to take in.

Even if you never purchase another EQ Profile (though we hope you do!), what you could learn in our newly revised EQ training has the potential to change your life and your coaching for good.

We don’t just teach you about the EQ Profile anymore, we go deeper, further.

We’ve created a new, more experiential training, that allows you to understand yourself and the EQ Profile from the inside out. Our training now extends into how each of us has been shaped by the relationships of our lives and how our interpretation of ourselves, others and the world impacts our contentment, our relationships, and or coaching. 

When you attend refresher training, you’ll be leveraging your initial investment to gain a deeper awareness of yourself and the hidden drivers of your life. Plus, you can use your newfound knowledge to create those same impactful awarenesses in your clients.  You’ll leave the training feeling qualified to use the EQ Profile with clients because you’ll experience it from the inside out.

Leverage Your Initial Investment to Deepen Your Coaching

» Explore your unique inner experience with interactive, experiential sessions, focusing on the "Self as Coach"

» Deepen your expertise in the unique niche of EQ coaching to support your ability to secure more work

» Go beyond the EQ Profile and gain awareness of the common denominators of your clients' derailing behaviors and how you can uncover them in generative ways for your clients

EQ and Relational Intelligence

Perhaps the single most critical aspect of our client’s 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 this most crucial aspect of our client’s lives? How do we learn what triggers our clients and derails with their relationships? 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.

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 at the moment and turn out to be 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 choices 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.

Leverage the impact of your coaching by going deeper faster with the EQ Profile, the only assessment that doesn't rely on self-reporting.

During training, we give you best practices for integrating the EQ Profile and the Journey of Relational Awareness into your one-on-one coaching or making it a part of your work with teams.

What You Can Expect

EQ Training Curriculum

The EQ Certification Training is a live, highly interactive, and experiential 12-week experience presenting a cutting-edge curriculum designed to re-engage your knowledge in this unique niche of coaching that will support you in securing more coaching engagements requiring deep relational and emotional intelligence expertise.

Session 1

The Journey of Becoming and Belonging: how our brains are shaped, how patterns and narratives form, and how the EQ Profile reflects those patterns.

Triggers and habituated patterns, how the EQ Profile captures our triggered responses, and how to interpret patterns, which is understanding the pattern of thinking, feeling, wanting, and believing that is reflected in your client’s EQ Profile.

Session 3

The Journey of Relational Awareness to understand the hero’s journey, the role of emotions, and the language of our internal experience.

Session 4-6

An introduction and guided journey through all of the dimensions of the EQ Profile and how to divine your client’s implicit Ladder of Inference as revealed by the EQ Profile.

Session 7

Relationship strategies, relational and boundary elements, and nuances of the EQ Profile.

About Learning In Action

Learning in Action is committed to healing the divide within and between people. Healing the divide within and between is the work that connects the world. Healing our dividedness from our essence will heal the dividedness between us. We dream of a world in which when one of us hurts, we all feel it. And we run to the aid of the other just as we would to our own. We envision a world in which there is a realization that we are separate and connected and ONE.

We do this work by providing coaches, consultants, OD professionals, and other change agents with the tools and resources to capture what goes on inside each of us in an interpersonal conflict. 

We believe 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.
