    We are the bridge between affordable coaching & EQ skill building

    We realize that not every issue regarding emotional intelligence is black and white, so we have created a hub where individuals can learn new skills that they can apply immediately, receive guidance from certified coaches, and lean on the community for support and encouragement in their development.

    We exist to provide a resourceful and communal platform for individuals looking to increase their emotional intelligence in both work and life. We manifest this by offering engaging live group coaching calls, developmental webinars, and opportunities to connect with the brightest minds in the world. As The collEQtive, we are the bridge between affordable coaching, EQ skill building, and an impassioned community of individuals that recognize the power of EQ.

    Emotional intelligence may be the

    most powerful under-used force

    on the planet today

    Sadly, most were never taught that EQ is a skill that can be developed. Influence, motivation, engagement, confidence, self-awareness, relationship building, etc…the impact and success of these attributes are related to how much emotional intelligence we possess. Currently, we live in an EQ drought where there are very few resources available explicitly dedicated to provide you with consistent learning, live engagement, and community.

    With the collEQtive, you have an opportunity to upskill and accelerate the growth of your emotional intelligence like never before.

    Emotional Intelligence grows through perception. Look around at your present situation and observe it through the level of feeling.

    Anyone can be angry--that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way--that is not easy.
