GROWING THE LEADER’S EQ – “I had no idea how badly I needed this.”

~ Dallen, New Grad Engineer

GROWING THE LEADER’S EQ – “I knew we had this group discussion today and wanted to go through it before speaking [with my co-worker].”

~ Derrick, Business Owner & Serial Entrepreneur

GROWING THE LEADER’S EQ – “I think I have always understood the value of emotional intelligence in relationships, but our sage was able to bring us to a deeper understanding of what it means and how to use it effectively. It was exciting to see a diverse group of individuals, from very different backgrounds and industries, achieve tangible markers of growth, both personally and professionally. I felt a connection with this group I honestly doubted was achievable through an online platform, prior to this experience. I’m hooked!.”

~ Brandi, Registered Nurse

GROWING THE LEADER’S EQ – “I have participated in a number of leadership development programs in the past that were both time consuming and expensive. LevellingUp’s unique format of online coaching combined with a round table dynamic allowed my leadership team to learn valuable skills from the comfort of their offices in only an hour a week. This cut out the need for travel time and reduced the overall cost while still allowing for the face to face dynamics of a group setting led by an expert.”

~ Mark, CEO

GROWING THE LEADER’S EQ – “It helps me stay accountable to myself. Not often do you have that opportunity!”

~ Alex, Financial Controller

GROWING THE LEADER’S EQ – “This isn’t a lecture that you just take away from. It requires you to engage in the discussion, and had been a real eye-opener for me. You should warn people about that!”

~ Gideon, Senior Team Lead

GROWING THE LEADER’S EQ – “My Accelerator Group has shown me where I’d like to be in my relationships versus where I am. While LevellingUp is all about being a better leader, the subject matter relates everywhere.”

~ Gideon, Senior Team Lead
