 Specialists in Social and Emotional Intelligence



Enterprises that are continually the best in their field develop exceptional people at all levels.

This capability is driven by leaders who lift the organisation from its very core by the way they lead.  They understand the value of highly engaged, empowered and talented people, to drive and sustain superior levels of performance and stakeholder value.


A key characteristic of all successful leaders is Social and Emotional Intelligence.


The capacity to understand our own behavior and how what we do and say influences others.


Social and Emotional Intelligence is fundamental to success at work.  It is about being aware of ourselves and others, in the moment, and using that awareness to manage ourselves (our behavior, our responses to stressful situations), and manage our relationships with others.


Emotional intelligence (EI or EQ) encompasses many skill sets, including powerful influencing skills, catalyzing change, teamwork and collaboration, building trust, stress management, resilience, managing conflict productively, and more.


Social + Emotional intelligence is a form of intelligence that drives our success in work and in life and in our relationships with others, according to Laura Belsten, PhD founder of the Institute for Social + Emotional Intelligence®.

 “Cultivating a culture where leaders have high social and emotional intelligence creates proven results in increased productivity, increased sales and profits, reduced healthcare costs, increased employee satisfaction and improved employee engagement to name a few,” says Belsten.  She goes on to say, “Managers with high scores in the relevant relationship management competencies of communication, building bonds, building trust, and inspirational leadership, are better equipped to manage their employees in a manner that brings out the best in individuals and teams.”
