The Emergence of this EI derivative called Emotional Quotient or EQ has had many leaders debate or jostle between EQ and IQ (Intelligence Quotient). A common perception that seems creeping up is that “EQ will likely replace IQ”. Our take, predisposed to an in-depth study of the subject and an extensive experience in resolving the underlying problems, differs here.

Our customized programs help you identify your existing blockers and resolve them for a higher performance as a leader.
Before you jump to conclusions or a dismissal, have a quick check on which EQ values you are enduring already and which ones you may be lacking.
