Our signature EQ development program is focused at personal development in the key areas of leadership, emotional management, critical thinking and decision-making. we make use of various assessment tools, including the integrative enneagram and TEIQue, followed by intensive one on one coaching
After the initial assessments, the first week, consisting of an hour session, focuses on developing self-awareness with regard to one's emotional profile. We look at the 5 steps in how our emotions start and how they lead to behaviour and consequences. We then identify the stimulus for each emotional response identified as problematic or beneficial. This is accompanied by self-discovery work done by the client at home
The second week focuses on how we perceive the emotions of others. Here we look at the benefits of identifying emotional states and triggers in colleagues, teammates or family members. This skills is highly beneficial in mitigating conflict, understanding the emotional energy in a room and adapting our behaviour to be more fitting in these situations.
the emotional management week leads on from week 2, in that we now develop the skills to not only perceive the emotions of others but also to manage the emotions of others. Emotional management refers to managing and influencing the emotions of those around us. This is highly beneficial in leadership, group work and in careers such as sales.
The last week focuses on developing the ability to effectively express our emotions. The focus in this week is to learn how to communicate effectively, share our feelings effectively and mitigate conflict. We then cover the ability to communicate based on the emotional state of others in the conversation and reaching solutions that best fit everyone, regardless of the situation.
The Integrative Enneagram creates self-awareness and uncovers the patterns of behaviour that sub-consciously drive and motivate us to act in certain ways. When we make these patterns and motivations conscious, we are able to transcend them and develop richer, more supportive ways of being. Working with the Enneagram empowers individuals to take responsibility for their own behaviours and growth, from a greater understanding of why they act and react the way they do.
As a framework, the Enneagram also speaks to the journey of integration and development in a profound way. It is able to uncover the uniqueness of each individual and his/her journey. It does not only reveal what holds an individual back, but also offers insights into the journey towards strength and liberation, connecting us to our strengths and higher selves.
The Enneagram is, therefore, a sense-making tool or a framework that enables the development of self-knowledge and meta-awareness. We offer the opportunity to complete a comprehensive enneagram assessment with an accredited facilitator, followed by a thorough debrief, coaching or counselling program that allows you to develop your personality and thereby live a healthier, more meaningful life.

The TEIQue is based on K. V. Petrides' trait emotional intelligence theory, from 1998. It is one of the world's best-researched and most widely applied psychometric instruments. Petrides’ theory views emotional intelligence as a group of emotional self-perceptions that are located at the lower levels of personality hierarchies. Trait EI assesses the emotional world of an individual comprehensively.
Among other psychological characteristics, the TEIQue assesses our beliefs about our emotional abilities (e.g., how good we believe we are at identifying, understanding, and managing our own and other people's emotions). These beliefs are strong predictors of a range of behaviours and achievements, which are vital in the workplace (job performance, job satisfaction, job stress, leadership, organizational citizenship, organizational commitment, teamwork).
The Thomas TEIQue is a self-report questionnaire. Individuals indicate their level of agreement on a 1-7 Likert scale (1 'disagree completely' to 7 'agree completely') with 153 unique items. The TEIQue report reflects what an individual thinks of themselves. The scores are compared to the responses of a representative working population sample then reported under the headings of four main, broad Factors. These are made up of fifteen more focused Facets and 2 independent Facets that don’t contribute to a Factor: Adaptability and Self Motivation.
THE FIFTEEN TRAITS MEASURED BY THE TEIQue:
EQ development leads to personal growth and self development, building self-esteem, confidence and effective behaviours
