“Trying to lead without Emotional Intelligence is like trying to drive with your parking brakes on. You can do it, but you’re not going to get very far.”

The J.O.I.E. Method

Build A Foundation

What are emotions? How do they function? We all have them, but few know how to fully access the information and guidance they provide. Learn how to work with your emotions to reduce strife and stress while accessing your innate wisdom.

Master Communication

Once you can be present with and understand your feelings, you need to express yourself. Doing that in ways in which you are truly heard and understood is another key part of success and fulfillment in the workplace.

Thrive in Relationships

Change is inevitable, and challenging personalities will always be part of work-life. Emotional agility is key to dealing with all kinds of people. The J.O.I.E. Method deepens your ability to be flexible, creative and in integrity with your values.
