My Mission

Emotional Intelligence Coach Dr Mike Gosling has a simple mission. My mission is to help successful people achieve positive, lasting change and behavior; for themselves, their people, and their teams. Also, I will help you make your life a little better. Furthermore, with two decades of experience helping CEOs and executives overcome limiting beliefs and behaviors to achieve greater success, I do this because I love helping people!

As an executive educator and coach, I describe how our beliefs and the environments we operate in can trigger negative behaviors with resulting serious physical effects felt in our body. Most of all I help you upgrade your emotional skills and awareness. So you grow your emotional intelligence and become a powerful communicator applying conversational intelligence techniques.

I help people achieve and sustain positive behavioral change through simple practical advice and guidance.


My passion is to help people develop and apply their emotional intelligence using The Emotional Leader Program. Also I’m assisted in this by Dr. Marshall Goldsmith’s Stakeholder Centered Coaching process.

Great leaders influence us by tapping into our emotions. Since everything in life has to do with emotions – how we feel about something is central. Research has shown that outstanding leaders are not just technically smart or lucky, but more often than not rely on their emotional intelligence.  Therefore, emotional skills can be taught and learned.

I help successful people change behavior. ThereforeI teach you how your emotions will get you to your goal! And when you learn and apply my eight emotional leadership habits, you will become unconsciously skilled in emotions. I empower you to grow without limits with ongoing success and influence in your work, family and community relationships using my eight habits centered on emotional intelligence and the neuroscience.

I am the author of four books and manuals:

  • Emotional Leadership. Using Emotionally Intelligent Behaviour To Enjoy A Life Of EASE.
  • EmotionMatters. How To Reduce Your Stress And Achieve Wellness.
  • Enjoy A Life Of EASE. Master Emotional Leadership.
  • The Emotional Leader Program. A Practical Guide to Successful Leadership Through Emotional Intelligence.

As an executive educator and coach I am disciplined by foundations of:

  • Character: A culture of empowering people in community.
  • Spirit: My moral qualities that guide my business conduct.
  • Integrity: To act with honesty, objectivity, and courage.
  • Methods: A systematic body of science-based knowledge and application.
  • Maturity: Applying wisdom and professional judgement.
  • Confidentiality: A code of privacy and security.

Emotional intelligence (EI) in the workplace

In organisations emotional intelligence is now regarded as the core ability for leadership. Emotional Intelligence Coach Dr Mike Gosling says EI is vital to being an effective and high-performing member of any team. Most noteworthy, intellect and business expertise can only carry you so far if emotional intelligence is lacking. Therefore, my programs focus specifically on the behavioral level; on performance at work. In addition, people who understand the connection between emotions and actions can produce a ‘step change’ in embedding desirable cultural changes. As a result, these changes help implement the transformational goals that are set by an organisation.

I am a Certified Administrator of:

  • MSCEIT™—Mayer, Salovey, Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test
  • EQ-i 2.0®—Emotional Quotient Emotional Intelligence Test
  • Genos Emotional Intelligence Test
  • Genos Employee Motivation Model

I bring together the strength of emotional intelligence research, cognitive-behavioral constructs, conversational intelligence and stakeholder centered coaching. Hence, this combination of skills is especially relevant in organisations dedicated to improving and embedding successful emotional leaders worldwide.

My primary focus is the application of knowledge needed to recognize, use, understand, and manage emotions in ourselves and in others. My experience working with people from 85 nationalities has allowed me to transform leaders and culture in organisations around the world. While my work is based on scientific and clinical evidence and I always incorporate the voice of lived experience received from my clients. Therefore, I aim to significantly increase the application of emotional intelligence and empower all people to live the most mental healthy successful life possible.
