Even the most intelligent and talented teams can struggle with communication and collaboration. So how do you equip your staff with healthy habits and tools that actually work? We guide teams through a paradigm shift, helping to change behavior from the ground up.

Recent research has shown that companies lose $500 billion annually due to disengaged teams. In fact, the number one cause of professional derailment is lack of Emotional Intelligence. Bringing your team together to align communication styles and build trust not only has a massive impact on your bottom line, but on your team's overall success and happiness.

Our Workshops

We offer three different workshops that focus on Emotional Intelligence growth, trust development and team building for groups of all sizes.

Organizations each have their own personalities, so we know that management solutions are not one-size-fits-all. We use a variety of tools that offer tailor-made solutions for each unique team; paramount among these is our Identity Mapping assessment. In combination with decades of experience and expert facilitation, we make short order of pesky management problems and produce thriving, healthy organizations.

Communicating and Collaborating for Results

You have a fantastic team but even the most intelligent and talented of individuals can struggle with communication. So how do you equip your staff with healthy communication tools? We guide teams through a communication paradigm shift, helping to change behavior from the ground up toward healthy communication that sticks.

Emergent's HeadWay Program™

In addition, we offer a six month leadership development program. Companies whose leadership actively utilize emotional intelligence (EQ) report 34% more profitability than those who don't. Emergent's HeadWay Program™ is designed to maximize the performance of leaders through our combination of learning, practice, and coaching. This, coupled with our cohort model and individual coaching, sets HeadWay™ apart from other coaching programs.

HeadWay™ is a six month leadership development program. Each month the cohort meets for a day of training, coaching and discussion helping build skills and knowledge as leaders. Additionally, each member of the cohort gets one coaching session per month, assisting them in their growth and struggles and supporting the practical application of new skills. The first four modules cover our core material; the remaining two modules are chosen by the cohort off our elective menu.

No two organizations are alike; our program formula allows for structure, yet flexibility, in meeting your organization's current and changing needs. We encourage commitment with content and connection that is relevant, enjoyable and readily applicable.
