You didn’t go into your career for the overwhelm.
You went in to make a difference.
And with Emotional Intelligence, you can.
Dr. Jenny Severson has supported leaders in building the EQ advantage at:
Your IQ is sky-high. But your EQ?
That’s the missing link.
And it’s not your fault.
Whether you’re a leader in the educational world or the corporate one you were likely taught to excel at “hard” skills. Math. Science. Reading.
But as valuable as these skills are–and as far into your career as they’ve undoubtedly taken you–it’s likely you weren’t taught that they’re incomplete without the complementary soft skills of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and Social Emotional Learning (SEL).
Because here’s the thing–your IQ can be off the charts, but without a rock-solid awareness of your inner world and how it translates into creating your outward reality, your achievement plateaus. You can only get so far before becoming swept up in the demands of your job–which always feel like they’re shifting beneath your feet…
You can’t catch up to them by working twice as hard. You’ll just burn out.
(Trust me, because that’s what happened to me.)
Instead, by implementing the core competencies of EQ and SEL, you can work more efficiently with your team so that you can collectively achieve up to three years of progress in one.
You can make the lasting difference you went into your career to make.
Not by being a martyr to your work–but by first pouring your energy into yourself, so that you can assert control over your outward reality from a steadfast inner world.
Build a legacy you can be proud of.
Let’s work together
You’re tired of drive-by workshops and so am I. That’s why my brand of learning, growth, and results offers simple yet effective, evidenced-based techniques you can apply right away. What if everyone was working more efficiently as a team to make more progress? That’s my aim, and every minute of my presentation is on purpose and relevant to your exact needs.
Bring me in for an hour, a half-day, or a full-day event. Better yet, let’s plan for the year and really create huge gains in EQ, teacher efficacy, and student achievement.
Whether you’re an educational team or a corporate one, I’ll guide you through leveraging your team’s strengths so that you can collectively achieve a higher impact in less time. You and your leadership team will have my guidance on implementing EQ and SEL in a way that’s tailored specifically to your goals. Yes, you can achieve significant growth in the 3, 6, and 9 month packages I offer. Imagine that catalyst, that boost, in one school year–who doesn’t want that? In every interaction, I’ll be there to champion you.
I poured the details about my journey into the Educator’s 180-Day Gratitude Turnaround, a self-reflection journal, and Thrive, a collection of stories about falling down and getting back up. Use these books to gain perspective and maybe even laugh or cry as you explore your own story and narrative. The books are guides for finding more joy on your journey.
