"Emotions Drive People, and People Drive Performance"
STRIVE FOR BALANCE:
There are a number of traits to look for when hiring, including a candidate’s past job experience, aptitude and culture fit. However, when it comes to ensuring equity and inclusion in the workplace, a person's level of emotional intelligence (EQ) should also be an important consideration. Working effectively with others in today's highly diverse workplace requires, not just the technical skills to do the job, but people skills as well. It is not always easy to work with people who think and act differently than ourselves, and being productive, while at the same time minimizing stress, and even burn-out, requires us all to maintain a balance of both IQ and EQ.
IQ + EQ = Wise Mind
We work closely with job seekers to help them develop their resume, cover letter, interviewing and networking skills, and to find employment in alignment with their natural strengths, skills and experience.
We work one-on-one with both job seekers and employees to help them recognize their strengths and manage their weaknesses to improve their interpersonal relations skills and advance their careers.

Our Why is to help ensure psychological health and safety in the workplace where people feel they belong, that their contribution is appreciated, and there exists a shared belief that the team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking.” According to the Gallup Organization, only 34% of employees are engaged in their work, and 16% are what we call actively disengaged. Many feel unappreciated for the strengths they bring to the workplace. Some of us like to work with facts and figures while others prefer ideas and people. When working effectively together, these cognitive differences contribute to the overall success of the organization. This means recognizing one's own biases, and appreciating not only our own strengths, but the strengths of others too. Having this understanding helps to increase collaboration resulting in improved productivity and well-being.
Cognitive differences are known as social styles and are represented by the four quadrants shown here. Each of these four social styles can contribute to the overall success of the organization.
Building strong relationships requires an understanding of our own social style as well as those of others, and then the versatility to be able to adapt to and problem solve these differences. It also requires us to develop hardiness and resilience to manage the stress of stepping out of our comfort zone to help meet the needs of others as well as our own.
