February 04, 2013 - EI Peer Coaching with Lisa Griebel and Karen Lanson

Frequently, EI Practitioners leave EQ-i Certification feeling both energized and overwhelmed because of ALL the possibilities. It is not uncommon for us to receive inquiries about next steps: How do I build Emotional Intelligence into my practice? What are good resources? How can I further develop my own emotional intelligence? These are all great questions and VERY relevant. If, in fact, your intention is to help make our world more emotionally intelligent, then you need answers to these questions (and more).

Crescendo Inc. is committed to building a strong EI Community of Practice that supports continuous learning and development in emotional intelligence. Last year, we introduced bi-monthly conversations (Crescendo Connect) focused on connecting emotional intelligence to other relevant topics. This year, we are introducing EI Peer Coaching as a strategy for EI Practitioners to focus and develop their personal emotional intelligence while enhancing their professional coaching/consulting practice.

In this Crescendo Connect Conversation, we will address the following questions:

  • What is Peer Coaching?
  • Why is Peer Coaching such a good fit with EI?
  • What are the benefits of EI Peer Coaching?
  • How does EI Peer Coaching work?

Diane NettifeeIn our November Crescendo Connect Conversation, Diane Nettifee, president of Magis Ventures (and certified EI Practitioner) will present and discuss her work with organizations on the interrelatedness of Values, Purpose and Emotional Intelligence.

Research shows the highest level of employee engagement occurs when individuals clarify their own personal values and purpose and can align it with their organizations values and purpose. Clarifying own personal values and purpose is a vital element to increasing and putting our Emotional Intelligence to work.

In this Crescendo Connect Conversation, attendees will learn...

  • The role that values and purpose play within the context of the 5 EQ-i2.0 composite scales (Self-Perception, Self-Expression, Interpersonal, Decision Making and Stress Management)
  • How increased awareness and intentional use of values and purpose enhances emotional intelligence development.
  • Helpful coaching tips to explore Values and Purpose in relationship to emotional intelligence.
