Did you know that 58% of success is due to EQ and only 42% to IQ? Join us for an interactive weekend workshop that provides a better understanding of Emotional Intelligence, which includes skills like emotional self-awareness, conflict resolution, and understanding different personality types. This workshop is not about a transfer of information, but about transformation. Our goal is to create growth experiences which challenge participants to engage EQ areas like communication, listening, and stress management. We want to see you achieve the success in your work, home, and relationships that you desire.
