Event Description

Michele Vitti, MA, instructor

Understanding and improving emotional intelligence (EQ) can have a profound and lasting impact on career success.  In a cross-industry study, researchers found that in all levels of management, increased emotional intelligence accounted for at least 20% more productivity. EQ, self-awareness and sensitivity toward others, are critical to effective leadership. This session is for practicing coaches and other professionals who wish to learn more about how to help clients raise their emotional intelligence. The program will cover principles of EQ and review current research and its implications for evidence-based coaching. Participants will use individual and small group exercises, role plays and examples to explore practical and strategic moves for improving EQ competencies.


Upon completion of this program participants will be able to:

·        Describe the four EQ competencies

·        Explore the business importance of EQ

·        Assess their own EQ profiles

·        Examine how to work with clients on improving EQ

Prerequisites:  Participants should be practicing or student coaches.


Program Code: EQ30

Fee: $120, (includes the cost of the administration of the EQ-I instrument before the session)

Location: at MSPP, Newton
