What You’ll Get
When you enroll you get access to the next cohort of Building Real-World Emotional Intelligence, all inclusive of the one-time signup fee.
This is a systematic, two-week course that will help you better understand what emotional intelligence is, give you the tools to develop your EQ, and provide a plan for continuing to build emotional intelligence for the rest of your life.
You’ll hear interesting stories, discover scientific research, and most of all learn practical tips that help you understand and manage emotions in a way that can make you a better manager or team lead, teammate, husband, wife, parent, and friend.
We’ll meet twice a week for two weeks over Zoom, where I’ll present the core ideas and use real-life examples to demonstrate how they work. Then, we’ll discuss how each of these ideas can be implemented in different scenarios. There’s also at least two Q&A sessions per event where you’ll get the chance to ask questions directly to me, through chat or verbally.
There’s no homework or required reading (although I will provide some additional resources and links for those who want them). I know everyone is busy so we’ve packed these sessions with as much information and value as possible.
- Sessions: 4x live Zoom sessions over the course of 2 weeks.
- Session length: 1 hour (and I’ll stick around for a little after each session if there are still questions).
- Content availability: Each live session is recorded in case you miss, or just want to review.
- Instructor: Yours truly.
The next cohort will begin in the near future. Click the button below to join the waitlist and get updates.

What’s the difference between the courses Build Real-World Emotional Intelligence and The Rules of Emotional Intelligence?
The content of the two courses are 95% different from each other.
Build Real-World Emotional Intelligence (or, Build EQ), covers emotional intelligence in a comprehensive way, exploring all four abilities (self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management). Additionally, Build EQ is primarily live, so you’ll get to ask questions and get answers directly in class. (However, sessions will also be recorded for those who can’t make it live.)
The Rules of Emotional Intelligence (or, The Rules), does not cover emotional intelligence as a whole. Instead, the content focuses on two areas of emotional intelligence, self-management and relationship management. This course gives you a toolbox of “rules” or guiding principles that help you practice emotional intelligence. We will introduce and cover some of these rules in Build EQ, but not in as much detail as The Rules. Additionally, The Rules is an “on demand” course, meaning it’s all pre-recorded and there is no live element.
