Want to lead with emotional intelligence?

Emotional intelligence is the gamechanger in leadership

Have you ever wondered about… 

…how well you understand your own emotions and their impact on your leadership decisions and interactions? 

…how you could respond better to the emotional stories present in your team? 

…what steps you can take today to enhance your EQ and become a more emotionally intelligent leader in your organisation?

Emotional Intelligence, often abbreviated as EQ, refers to the ability to recognise, understand, manage and effectively utilise emotions, both in oneself and in others. It involves a combination of skills that enable individuals to navigate complex social situations, communicate effectively and build strong interpersonal relationships.

Studies have consistently shown that EQ plays a pivotal role in leadership effectiveness. Leaders with high EQ are better equipped to inspire and motivate their teams, resolve conflicts and make sound decisions. In fact, research indicates that EQ is often more critical than traditional intelligence (IQ) in determining leadership success.

While IQ is often viewed as something you’re born with, EQ can be developed and strengthened throughout your life. You can improve your EQ by becoming more aware of your emotions, practicing empathy and working on your communication skills. This means that unlike IQ, which tends to stay relatively constant, EQ is something you can actively work on and improve over time, making it a valuable tool for personal growth and leadership effectiveness.

Dive into the depths of emotional intelligence and equip yourself for your next level of leadership, in work and life. 

There is always a next level.

Why embark on a journey around emotional intelligence now?

You didn’t come this far to only come this far. But…What got you here will not get you there.

It is vital to understand that what got you to this point in your career or personal path may not be enough to take you further. 

To keep evolving and reaching new heights, we often need to dig deeper into who we are and who we aspire to be. By embracing self-discovery and self-enhancement, you take the next significant step forward and find greater fulfilment along the way.

The beauty of a transformation lies in how it presents itself, often through your dissatisfaction with the current state. 

All you need to do is acknowledge the signs and embark on your journey to the next level. To get unstuck, you need to start moving. 

What might you be experiencing right now that indicates you are ready for the next level?

At the core of Miranda Berkhof’s work lies leadership transformation. Miranda is deeply committed to guide leaders on their personal and professional journeys.  

With over 15 years of experience in developing leaders and transforming organisations, she understands that business/system transformation requires a personal transformation of leaders. 

In her words: “Life is a transformational journey, and so is leadership. In both, we are invited to learn, to add new discoveries through experience and to gain deeper insights about ourselves, and about how we relate to others and the world at large. Often, the best we can do is get out of our own way and allow ourselves to embark on the journey.”

When it comes to leadership transformation, most of my work is done with/for individuals with the financial means – or access to their employer’s financial resources  – for premium coaching and transformative leadership development programs.

However, my belief in the value of leadership extends beyond corporate settings. It’s not limited to large corporations, but also applicable to scale-up leaders; it’s not exclusively for executives but valuable for middle management; and it’s not solely for career purposes but equally beneficial for your personal aspirations.

To make transformative leadership development accessible to a broader audience in terms of affordability and convenience, I created the LeadershipIQ Academy.

Within the LeadershipIQ Academy, you will find self-development journeys that offer a treasure trove of profound insights, ideas and inspiration. These journeys are designed for individuals who prefer a self-paced and self-guided approach, eliminating the need for direct coaching or facilitation.

If you’re interested in exploring my other offerings, please visit www.mirandaberkhof.com or feel free to contact me at contact@mirandaberkhof.com or via phone at +31628747684. I’m happy to help you discover the right path for your personal and professional development.

Many employers offer reimbursement options for expenses related to learning and development, based on a personal budget or after approval by your manager. 

To reimburse the investment in yourself with your employer, you often need a Purchase Order Number (or any other reference) to track your invoice through the finance system of your organisation. If you indicate the required reference as ‘other details’ during the check-out process, these details will be displayed on your invoice.

Access to your selected journey(s) will be granted after payment. You can start immediately with the course and you will receive your invoice a few minutes after for a fast reimbursement of your investment.

This journey is designed as an individual experience, allowing yourself to delve into personal growth and leadership development.

While your entire team can certainly embark on this journey individually, you can consider to combine it with regular check-ins or conversations about experiences, learnings and application. This way you extend the individual learning journey into a collective leadership experience. Please note that everyone needs to gain access individually and will work through the content on their own pace. 

You can also explore the option of a custom, in-person team journey. Such a program would be tailored to your team’s unique situation, addressing the specific shifts and outcomes you aspire to achieve together. My only criteria for working with a team is that there is a transformation required or requested, and everyone in the team agrees on the transformational nature of this phase for the team. 

If you are interested in this customized team journey, please feel free to reach out to explore how we can create a program that perfectly aligns with your team’s aspired transformation.
