We specialize in certifying, assessing, developing, and coaching the hard skills of emotional intelligence (EI). We believe emotions are data and should always be considered when making important decisions and leveraged to help build trust and strengthen relationships. We believe there are no good or bad emotions, and ALL emotions can be helpful, when we learn to embrace and leverage them to reach our goals and objectives.
We use the ability-based model of EI developed by Peter Salovey and John (Jack) Mayer. They defined emotional intelligence as “the ability to monitor one’s own and others’ feelings, to discriminate among them, and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and action.” (Salovey & Mayer (1990). Over the years, their theory was applied to create the “EI Blueprint” (Caruso & Salovey, 2004). When we use the EI Blueprint, we have an essential tool and framework to help us tackle challenges in the best possible way – through and with emotions!
