Emotional Intelligence

IQ gets you hired. EQ gets you promoted.

How well we deal with our emotions governs how well we manage ourselves and our relationships, and is a prerequisite for our professional and personal success.

Emotional Intelligence – the ability to recognize and manage our own emotions, to understand the emotions of others and harness that information to build effective relationships – is at the heart of leadership, performance, effective teamwork and client satisfaction. As one of the most compelling and effective approaches to human understanding, growth and problem solving, I have developed it as one of my primary resources over the last 15 years.

Research clearly shows that the best decisions are made when we engage our emotions as well as our intellect, and that the most effective and productive people are those with high Emotional Intelligence. It also shows that unlike IQ, we can consciously and thoughtfully build our Emotional Intelligence throughout our lives.

My Emotional Intelligence workshops have consistently been rated among the very best by clients including Bombardier Aerospace, McGill University, TELUS and Brother Canada, as well as by the many participants who have attended the public 2-day Emotional Intelligence workshop I deliver at the McGill Executive Institute.

With my individual coaching clients, I employ the EQ-i 2.0 assessment tool for measuring emotional and social intelligence. This analysis helps to establish the need for targeted development programs and measures, which can result in dramatic improvements in performance, interaction with others, leadership potential and personal and professional satisfaction.

Feedback from clients

“Jane was instrumental and engaging as a leader in emotional intelligence. I was a participant in two of her courses, for which there were many takeaways which I practice today and which have greatly assisted in personnel matters. The situations are living examples of workplace challenges and Jane is particularly poised to assist in the most difficult cases.

I have recommended Jane’s courses to many colleagues who exude the benefit of the time investment. Jane is most personable and a subject matter expert in human interaction and communication means.

Her courses are a MUST!”

Christiane Tinmouth, Associate Vice Principal, McGill University

“I was interested in learning more about Emotional Intelligence and had the opportunity to take the EQ-i 2.0 assessment. With Jane’s assistance and very insightful debrief, I found this to be an eye-opening exercise.

Building greater awareness of how I operate and how better to deal with others gave me valuable information that I could instantly incorporate into my work and personal life.”

“…..emotional intelligence is not the opposite of intelligence, it is not the triumph of heart over head – it is the unique intersection of both.”
