Increase your self-awareness and leadership skills by practicing emotional intelligence. When a person's IQ only takes them so far, their EQ can take them farther. Top leadership qualities are cultivated when leaders engage in self-awareness and utilize emotional intelligence practices. Take your skills to the next level with exposure to a personal EQ assessment, and training that will impact both your personal and professional life.

  • Increase awareness of how your emotions impact behavior and performance in the workplace
  • Become a balanced leader by learning how to build healthier relationships and communicate effectively with your colleagues
  • Practice emotional intelligence in both your personal and professional life


"This is a workshop that applies to everyone. In a world where we are so aware of our differences, it is so important to try to understand one another better. This opened up my eyes to ways I need to better understand and regulate my own emotions in order to be better for the people I work with, live with, and support." - Jessie

"UW-Parkside's Office of Continuing Education offers timely, impactful programs that are very useful to alumni and community leaders. Abby Waters, of Grow Coach, offered an excellent session that balanced conceptual learning with opportunities to connect with other participants and to reflect on how to apply these concepts and learnings to our daily lives, both at work and at home." - Kelly

"Overall a great workshop! It was informative and engaging. Glad I signed up and looking forward to the next one!" - Rachel 

"Improving how I impact others, self awareness, and how to read other people is an on-going goal for me. This course provided great information and examples to follow. The personal touches before and during the course were better than others I've experienced." - Maureen
