Welcome to MikeGosling.com!

Think about the people you know who aren’t great at reading non-verbal communication, those who are oblivious to how their constant negativity and annoying behaviour wears on others, those who cannot function well when anxious, or the people who get angry when having to deal with feelings of being attacked, misunderstood or criticised. 

Are you one of these people? This kind of stuff happens all the time, but only truly emotionally intelligent individuals know how to respond in a way that steers the situation toward a positive outcome. 

If you want to succeed in life, it helps to have high emotional intelligence and basically, it’s how well you understand and manage your own emotions and those of the people you interact with. When you’re keyed-in, observant and reflective when it comes to emotions, you can be a better leader, spouse and overall human being. Unfortunately, not everybody has this ability.

Do people fear you and are cautious around you; or are you held in awe and respect?

Are you haughty in your walk; contemptuous, rather than humble and respectful?

Have you been unrestrained in your reactions to events; or reflective, managing your emotions?

Are you fearful of your authority; or a great teacher helping others design the life they love?

Are you challenged to be more like your heros; or not thought about how you impact others?

I’m the only coach in the world using emotional intelligence data, brain science, as well as psychology, scripts and templates to help you be a better person at work and at home. With four decades of experience helping people overcome limiting beliefs and behaviours to achieve greater success, I’m committed to helping 1,000 great leaders have high emotional intelligence by 2026, as a key leadership skill for building personal relationships.

My mission is simple. I want to help successful people achieve positive, lasting change in behaviour; for themselves, their people, and their teams. I work with relationships between people, so I want your life to be better by helping you stop one annoying behaviour – and making a measurable positive change. 

As an executive educator and coach I help people understand how appraisal of our beliefs, values, expectations and the environments we operate in can trigger negative behaviours and disconnected relationships.

In this program I lead you on the journey to self-improvement through behavioural change; improving performance for leaders, coaches and the individual.

Emotional constipation (stress) has debilitating effects on our health and relationships. Stress depletes our immune system; negatively effects our Autonomic Nervous System – gut, bowel, reproductive system and inability to recover from stress; lowers serotonin; and leads to lowered self-esteem.

We’ve all had situations where our emotions got the better of us. Often it’s because we’ve conditioned ourselves to respond to events in a certain way and are unaware of the impact our annoying behaviour has on others.

Often we don’t realize what is happening until our “emotional trigger” sets us off. We’ve also resisted change because we think, “I am what I am and you can’t change that”. Wrong! Change is a process we can choose to participate in or stay as we are. If you choose not to change, how’s that working out for you?

Using science-based emotional intelligence (EI) assessments, brain science as well as psychology and feedforward simple and practical advice, I help leaders achieve and sustain positive behavioural change; and get that promotion, earn way more money, and enjoy a better lifestyle – faster!

Travis Bradberry, co-author of Emotional Intelligence 2.0, conducted a study where his team tested the EQ (aka EI) of over 42,000 people and compared their scores to their annual incomes. In his report, Bradberry states, “The road to higher income is paved with the quality of your relationships. People earn more money as they become more emotionally intelligent.” Bradberry found that people with high levels of emotional intelligence earn an average of $29,000 more annually than those with less emotional intelligence. Research just gave you 29,000 good reasons to improve yours.

The best time to handle a negative emotion is when you first begin to feel and experience it fully, identifying the situation that has occurred. That way you can deal with it and it won’t keep popping up time and time again. Dealing with your emotions and the emotions of others is what emotional intelligence is all about and is what coaching can help you change.

I believe in and understand how vital sound relationships are to your future life goals. Coaching helps us build sound relationships through managing the parts and pieces of our life — emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual — in designing the lives we love.

Delivering executive coaching for over 20 years, my passion has been guiding leaders – no matter how successful you already are – to BREAKTHROUGH and OVERCOME annoying limiting beliefs and behaviors to get the most from your leadership, relationship, family, and life goals.

Within a culture of being professional, open-minded, knowledgeable, resourceful, non-judgmental, and experienced I help you develop and apply your emotional intelligence abilities to better manage your emotions at work and at home, change annoying behaviours, and inspire you to take your life and career to the next level.

The impact on others of your new skills is them feeling more worthy, valued, validated, supported and motivated, resulting in greater loyalty and happiness at work and a healthier less stressed lifestyle for all. Better collaboration at work leads to better ideas, better morale, and a more successful profitable company with increasing seniority and higher paying opportunities for you.

If you want assistance to manage your behavior at work or at home then please get in touch. I help leaders experiencing difficulties with higher-ups, colleagues, direct reports and partners win and succeed at life, live with confidence, and enjoy higher paying jobs.
