Emotional Intelligence ( EI ) is the ability to understand and manage your own emotions and those of the people around you. People with a high degree of emotional intelligence know what they are feeling, what their emotions mean and how these emotions can affect other people. EI Coaching begins with an electronic questionnaire about yourself. The results are generated in a lengthy written report, showing your strengths and weaknesses. If you feel you need more coaching, in order to strengthen your EI , a plan will be developed, tailored to your needs.
