Business Emotional Intelligence is a practical, work based approach to Emotional Intelligence that helps individuals and teams understand why people behave the way they do and how to maximise their engagement with, and performance at, work.

Why Business EQ?

Are you struggling to identify your most effective leadership style?
Would you like to uncover the blind spots that stop the development of your leadership potential? Do you need to increase the effectiveness of your teams? Are you recruiting and developing the right talent to breed a culture of success?


Some people have been conditioned to believe that emotions are not welcome in the workplace and that work decisions should be based on cold, logical reason. Leadership research tells us that the lack of interpersonal skills and the inability to adapt are the two main factors in derailing careers.


With leaders in organisations spending up to 80% of their time talking and understanding others, changing the nature of how people engage and work with each other in an organisation can be the single most powerful way a leader can encourage performance breakthroughs.


Today there is more and more research in the rapidly expanding field of Emotional Intelligence at work, indicating that the proper understanding and use of emotions, is critical in helping leaders and teams become more effective and better communicators.


Now, more than ever, Business Emotional Intelligence is becoming the new standard in evaluating a leader’s impact on teams and organisations. 


Teamwork matters!

A Word From My Clients

Making use of the EBW assessment as part of my personal development plan was stimulating and educational. The comprehensive report I obtained was very accurate and useful in confirming multiple areas I need to work on. I highly recommend working with Jan, and the EBW approach, as it helped me generate a roadmap and to improve the effectiveness of my leadership style as well as my self-awareness.

Nick M. – Managing Director – Dec18

Jan has been invaluable in my quest for change. His feedback on my EBW Business Emotional Intelligence report was in-depth, balanced and open-minded.  His approach elicits creative solution finding; our sessions have been thought-provoking and motivational.  His skill as a coach was matched by his commitment to my success.  I would recommend Jan, with complete confidence, to anyone looking to develop highly functioning teams and inspirational leaders.”

Ceri H. - Mental Health & Wellness Consultant – Jan19

Jan, with his many years of experience leading complex and diverse teams in different geographies, is very well equipped to guide you on your career development journey. He genuinely takes an interest in his coachees’ development and through the use of the EBW tool, Jan was able to effectively point out my strengths and opportunity areas in a clear and concise manner. This has in turn allowed me to put in clear action steps to develop myself further in the workplace.
