Executive Emotional Intelligence Behavioural Coaching is designed to serve a Client who is a key contributor with a powerful position in an organization and is accountable for highly complex decisions with a wide scope of impact and influence on others within an organisation.

The focus of Executive Coaching is often on the mastery of fundamental leadership and interpersonal skills and their application to the coordination and development of teams; or on the mastery of functional skills such as marketing, sales processes, and strategic planning.

I fill in the gaps in an MBA program or other technical qualification, that may be holding the Executive back from a promotion and realising their full potential.

My Executive Coaching clients often have formal technical training and qualifications in management, but have sometimes bypassed emotional skills; how feelings can be harnessed for personal development. We are always looking for little life hacks that will help us perform better – to learn faster, work more productively, and communicate more effectively.

New research in psychology and neuroscience is showing that our emotions are instrumental in our ability to perform well on a range of tasks. Emotions, we now know, play a critical role in every aspects of our high-level behaviours and decisions.

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.

And why do you want to grow your emotional intelligence? Because the World Economic Forum has stated that emotional intelligence is one of the top 10 skills required in organisations in 2026. New research is showing that EI is the strongest predictor of high performance and explains 58% of a leader’s success (Gallup).

Research shows that emotionally intelligent leaders who become more emotionally skilled make $30,000 more a year than leaders with lower levels of EI. So, on average, every point increase in EI adds $1,300 to an annual salary (TalentSmart).

My program, The Emotional Leader System,  focuses 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.

Emotional intelligence development is an opportunity for change. I work globally to build emotional capability and self-confidence in leaders; for themselves, their people and their teams. Emotionally intelligent leaders lead change effectively through understanding how the brain operates and how the emotional response system works in themselves and in others.

I equip leaders with specific skills and strategies to deliver solutions to problems such as:

  • Getting the organisation or team to accept the need for change
  • Initiating the change process and getting buy-in
  • Motivating individuals to stop resisting and engage with change
  • Ensuring engagement and morale stay high during change
  • Maximizing performance and minimizing resistance during times of uncertainty and transition

Specifically, Emotional Intelligence Coaching equips you to:

  • find one or two behaviors keeping you from your goal
  • understand and manage your emotional style
  • increase your emotional knowledge for use in problem solving and decision-making
  • improve mood and job performance
  • develop self-management so you become unconsciously skilled in emotions,
  • communicate effectively for increased personal and professional relationship satisfaction, and
  • maximize performance and minimize resistance during times of uncertainty and transition.

The Principles Underlying My Approach

My Emotional Intelligence Development programs are based on Dr. Mike Gosling’s coaching process – The Emotional Leader System.

The inspiration for The Emotional Leader System is to provide tips, tools, strategies, and resources that target emotional skills development for positive, measurable, long-term behavioral change. Furthermore, The Emotional Leader System course ensures that Emotional Intelligence is a major component of this growth.

Furthermore, The Emotional Leader System is structured on EASEQuadrant, an evidenced-based best practices model of emotional leadership. The Emotional Leader System was developed by Dr. Gosling in 2002, drawn from scientifically researched emotional intelligence (EI) constructs, emotional brain theory, and cognitive-behavioral insights. In addition, we now include conversational intelligence as an integral part of effective communication.
