Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
The ability to accurately perceive and understand others’ emotions; to understand the signals that emotions send about relationships; and to effectively manage your own emotions.
Self-Awareness is the first step in effective communication, enhanced emotional intelligence and cohesive teamwork. Understanding your own work & leadership styles provides for a better personal and organizational experience.
Teamwork can carry an organization through economic hardships, leadership transitions, and rapid change. Each member brings a unique set of skills, competencies and experiences that can add value, increase engagement through strong relationships, positively impact commitment and productivity.
Every personality has it’s own unique language. Foundational to successful teams is effective communication, where people are able to express themselves and be understood, feel safe to speak plainly and feel heard.

Step into your Intuition.

Evolution is a two day, 16-hour Applied Improvisation techniques workshop. It is designed for coaches, leaders, creatives and advisors who want to stretch their boundaries of creativity, intuition and connection. Where do you stop in being present? When do emotions get the best of you? Do they link you back to your own experiences? We coach you to be flexible and relaxed, even during unexpected or awkward situations.

Through advanced improvisational breakthrough exercises, you will have the opportunity to unlock your creativity, identify the obstacles that block you from being able to create meaningful shifts in a dynamic way. We all hold within us the power to change and manifest our vision. Any area of our lives we want to focus on; career, coaching, relationships, our body, finances or our time — the tools and strategies of the Evolution Weekend provides an experience that moves us into positive forward action.

This is a breakthrough opportunity for you to expand your capacity for staying present, being authentic, trusting your intuition and getting centered. Interactive exercises are designed to push you out of your comfort zone and experience what is available when you let go and play a bigger game.
