Emotional Intelligence for Professional and Personal Development
Understanding what Emotional Intelligence is and why it matters is a key success factor for today’s organizations. MLEK can provide assessment using the Bar-On EQi 2.0 for staff across all aspects of any business. It is especially powerful for leaders and emerging leaders. If we can gain insight around our range of productive behaviours and learn where our blind spots are, we can leverage our strengths and develop our weakness. Assessing Emotional Intelligence is done online in conjunction with an EQ coach. The results are interpreted and shared with the respondents. In addition, MLEK delivers comprehensive workshops on how to use EQi individually and within organizations. To make the topic less daunting, MLEK provides clear and usable tools and strategies aligned to a comprehensive development plan for both individuals and organizations. Our goal at MLEK is to ensure that EQi becomes part of the culture of any organization. The higher the EQi in an organization, the more staff and stakeholders benefit.

Is Management for Me: Is It a Good Fit?
So often, individuals feel that to become successful that they need to move management. In reality, this is not true. More often it is true that to make more money one needs to move into management. This is very unfortunate because often when people are motivated by money they find themselves in a position that they are not well suited for. The organization in turn loses a good professional and gains a poor manager. Being a good manager requires the individual to understand the roles of being a manager, the interest to fulfill those roles but more importantly the ability and personality to fulfill them well. This 1 day program takes people through a set of exercises that helps them explore the role of managers and to determine whether or not they have the interest and personality to fulfill these roles.
