Emotional Intelligence, commonly abbreviated as EI, is best defined as our capacity to perceive, express, understand and manage our own emotions and the emotions of others in an effective and appropriate manner, both in the workplace and in our personal lives.
Where do we most commonly get stuck in our lives?
Dealing with our feelings, or the feelings of those around us!
EI is simply being smart about our feelings and the feelings of others.
Emotional Literacy and Emotional Intelligence are the key.
Decades of behavioral decision research has consistently shown that emotions, more than any other contributing factor, are what motivate us to act. Every decision we make, every choice to act or not act is determined by our intention to manage our feelings in one way or another, to either feel better or to avoid feeling badly. Emotion is the single pivot point upon which rests our entire experience of the quality of our life.
"Low self-esteem is a 'doing' wound. We don't believe or feel we are capable and competent.
Low self-worth is a 'being' wound. We don't feel worthy of love and respect, from ourselves or from others.
Both have profound consequences for how we live our lives, for how we treat ourselves and how we treat others.
The remedies for low self-esteem and low self-worth are both similar and unique, and truthfully, they are not that difficult to repair. Together they create the foundation for the presence or absence of that essential confidence we need to venture forth into the world and create the lives we want and deserve."
I have chosen to focus on emotional intelligence coaching because I see EI as the most consistent and effective gateway to authentic being for my clients. Being one's most authentic, powerful and creative self is the foundation for everything else in our lives. If we get that part right, the rest simply falls into place.

I typically coach three categories of Emotional Intelligence clients:
- Highly Motivated Individuals: Men and Women who are deeply committed to their own personal transformation, who want nurturing relationships, who want to create joy and meaning in their chosen work, and who want to be their most powerful, creative and authentic Self. Additionally, these clients frequently have some level of intention to contribute to others, to make a difference in the lives of others in a way that really matters -
- Experienced Coaches: If you are an experienced coach, you are already deeply committed to your own personal transformation. You want nurturing relationships, you want to create joy and meaning in your coaching work, you want to stand for optimal results for your clients, and you want to be your most powerful, creative and authentic Self. EI coaching with me will shift your consciousness and open your heart even more than it is already, and this in turn will empower you to be far more effective with your clients than you are now. -
Coaching the Coach
- Highly Motivated Leaders: Business owners, individual senior executives, executive or manangement teams, managers of marketing, sales and customer service teams. My corporate and business clients are deeply committed to improving their leadership and interpersonal skills in the workplace, not only as part of their business development strategy, but as part of their intention to be their best authentic self as a leader -
