“In a very real sense we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels.” -Daniel Goleman

In the 90’s Daniel Goleman became a hit through his book, ”Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ.” In the book, he explains that we have rational and emotional minds, why Emotional Intelligence is critical to success in our work and relationships, and how EQ can be taught and cultivated.

I strikingly remember the buzz, as the topic was fervently discussed during a class at my university.

What Goleman was saying made sense, but what didn’t make sense was how long it had taken us to write about a topic that seemed like it should have been second nature to us. But was it?

The Need For Emotional & Social Intelligence

Fast forward many years, and it turns out that we’re still not experts yet on the topic of Emotional Intelligence. We are still far from aligning our rational and emotional minds to most effectively reach our highest potential.

And to make things even more complicated, we’re also not well-versed on what it means to be Socially Intelligent (anymore) – an art we’ve sadly lost in the day and age of screens.

As a human capital and human resource practitioner of 15 years, I continue to grapple with the question of why companies still haven’t shifted their focus from building skillsets to building mindsets. Almost anyone can be taught a skillset, but building a mindset (as challenging as it might be) is a whole new parameter to success.

Emotional and Social Intelligence (ESQ) builds and shifts mindsets to make radical transformations. Leading with ESQ will reap incredible value for organizations that are leading through times of increased complexity and change – like today. Studies and experience continue to show that building ESQ in your employees will be a game changer on every level.

What is ESQ?

At Experiential Insight, we’ve developed a thought leadership framework called HyperQ, and ESQ is a key Intelligence Type in it.

The seven Success Skills under ESQ include:

Want To Increase Your ESQ?

With increased ESQ, the opportunities for value creation in your organization are endless.

Just think about what it would mean to have employees who place value on and engage in dialogue, who are resilient, who are able to leverage both their rational and emotional minds, who are able to influence outcomes, and who bring global perspective to every solution.

If you’re looking for next-level impact, then it’s time to stop training for skillsets and start coaching instead for mindsets-- your business depends on it.

As we’ve witnessed first-hand through our group Executive Coaching tracks, Emotional and Social Intelligence (ESQ) transforms organizations for the better.

Let us help you transform your business by transforming the mindsets of your employees with ESQ.

In our modern and fast-paced world, organizations face constant change all the time.

Leading a company through ever-increasing complexity and changing economic models is no small endeavor. Having the right tools that enable you to push your human capital assets into new heights means introducing capabilities that are uniquely positioned.

So what makes a team uniquely capable beyond what they already know and do?

At Experiential Insight, we call this unique capability Visionary Intelligence, which is an Intelligence Type in our thought leadership framework called HyperQ.

In our experience working with the hottest startups, to the mid-sized growth machines, and the big enterprises too, it is increasingly clear that companies that lead with Visionary Intelligence (VQ) have an advantage over their competition.

What is VQ?

Visionary Intelligence or VQ consists of the following seven Success Skills:

What’s the Opportunity?

Building a team that embodies each of these Success Skills is where your greatest opportunity lies.

Being a visionary and having VQ are two different things. VQ enables your organization to look beyond, think bigger, never be satisfied, create experiences, and so much more.

This is a powerful place for both the individual and the company to strive for because it will create heightened employee engagement, and rapid next-level organizational results.

Are you ready to build the team that’ll help your organization adapt and grow?

Then seize the opportunity to let us build VQ in your organization today.

20+ years ago when I started my career as a Change Management Consultant, little did I know that I would eventually find my full passion through a life-changing body of work called Executive Coaching.

I’ve spent my career working with some of the most intelligent leaders and the best companies in the world, from Deloitte Consulting to Cisco, Silicon Valley Bank, Royal Dutch Shell and so many others. It’s always been an honor to develop bright minds to that next level of management and leadership.

And now as an Executive Coach with Experiential Insight, I am able to have an even broader impact, by bringing executive-level skills to every level of an organization, through intimate group coaching that is designed for transformation. I’ve had the joy of coaching a diverse range of people – from university students to corporate managers and directors.

What I find most rewarding with Experiential Insight is the culture of continuous improvement. At the conclusion of each hour of group coaching, not only do I know my rating as an Executive Coach, most importantly I know how much I have shifted the needle with my Coachees. In each coaching session we ask them how equipped they are to add value as a result of the session. It’s amazing to see the transformation in their confidence. Having access to real-time results like this also allows me to reflect on my own coaching style – what I should do more of and what I can do better. It gives me the opportunity to bring my A+ game to every coaching session.

It is also phenomenal to work for a company that is built on hiring the best coaches around so that we can learn from each other. We have a 39% Executive Coach acceptance rate, which means we only hire the most elite talent. When you’re creating massive impact around the world and changing the face of organizations and societies, the bar needs to be set high.

Our thought leadership framework HyperQ allows us to address impact both with our clients and within our own walls – this is the best part about working for a global leader committed to unlocking human potential.

I’m grateful to have this opportunity to make a difference, and look forward to creating more impact in the years to come.

As a human capital and human resource practitioner with 15 years of experience at Deloitte Consulting, Salesforce, Cisco, and others, I’ve spent my whole career entangled in the wheelhouse of anything and everything to do with the people dimension of running a business.

From behind the curtain, time and time again I’ve seen the challenges organizations face with increasing people value to better align with business value. And I believe that there is a better way forward.

The HR Challenge

One of the biggest challenges from an HR perspective has always been how to effectively create business value in a way that addresses the pain points. And from a business perspective, business leaders want to see that HR understands their priorities and comes to the table with the ammunition required to accelerate growth through their people.

The challenge for HR practitioners to date has been that the tools used to up-level talent for maximum business value hasn’t really added value. This is no fault of HR -- it’s simply because until now training has been the only available tool to up-level talent. Yet McKinsey data tells us that adults unfortunately only retain 10% of what they learn in a classroom, which means that they act on even less.

Building Mindsets Together

If we’re going to push value to the next required level, we need something vastly different than training that focuses only on traditional skillsets. We need to build mindsets, but not in a way that focuses on the individuals’ goals alone. Instead, we need to do it in a way that allows individuals to transform together with a business-centric focus.

One to one coaching models are popping up all over like mushrooms. However, when assessing them for your needs, the first question you should ask is:

Are they focused on life coaching, career coaching, or executive coaching?

These are all vastly different models of intent and focus, and if you’re a business your needs are highly likely geared towards executive coaching at every level, rather than life or career coaching.

The second question you need to ask is:

Are you focused on developing individuals for their own agendas and goals, or are you focused on building individuals that grow and transform together based on the organization’s goals?

It’s clear that the latter is more appealing for a variety of reasons including building a culture of learning together, psychological safety, group accountability, and fostering a team mentality.

So while one to one coaching has worked to date, with the predominant focus on coaching senior executives, it is not nearly as scalable, nor does it translate into rapid transformation for the entire organization.

That’s where group coaching comes in to play.

Scalable Group Coaching

Due to both its collaborative and scalable nature, group coaching is the future of HR.

It is an extremely powerful approach which can do the following things for you:

  • Build organizational cultures

  • Instill leadership visions

  • Create succession planning bench strength

  • Develop manager effectiveness

  • Solve for generational and global differences

  • Develop change agents at every level

  • Build customer mindsets

  • Reduce diversity challenges

  • Integrate acquired employees

That’s why at Experiential Insight we believe in investing in your people and your business by investing in our Group Coaching Tracks.

Ready for the Future of HR? Group Coaching is your answer.

As the great John F. Kennedy once said, “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”

At Experiential Insight, we totally agree. That’s why we believe that coaching and continuous learning are pathways to developing better leaders.

Don’t see how important this is yet?

Here are some shocking stats in terms of where your organization is right now:

  • 90% of your employees are not adding accelerated value

  • 51% of employees are actively looking for or are open to a new job

  • 90% of classroom training is not retained

  • 33% of everyday activities are wasted

  • 67% of change initiatives fail

  • 47% of jobs will be automated by 2034

Although the numbers may seem grim, there is hope to bridge the gap from where you are to where you want to be.

That’s why we’re so passionate about our group Executive Coaching Tracks, which facilitate continuous learning so that your employees at every level can develop as leaders who make an impact.

Let’s work together to get your organization to where you want it to be.

When you contribute to the growth of your employees, you’ll be able to:

  • Increase productivity, impact, and engagement

  • Create employee experiences that engage employees to do the best work of their lives

  • Create greater self-awareness, achievement, and bottom-line impact

  • Increase organizational alignment and strategic impact

  • Develop employees to become change agents

  • Successfully navigate increasingly complex environments

It’s a big leap, isn’t it?

The gap from where you are to where you want to be can be big and complex. You’ll need a long-term strategic partner who can partner with you to radically transform your organization within the next 12 months. And we’d love to help you get there.

Think bigger. Act bigger. Become HyperQ.

The influence and impact of a leader is fast accelerating into a new stratosphere of success. No longer will an individual rise to the top simply because he or she is a brilliant technician with a few good Success Skills at bay. Instead success will be recognized at the top because he or she demonstrates Hyper Intelligent Leadership. This is the Future of Leadership that will shape our future of work.
