EI Experience creates comprehensive learning and developmental experiences that brings HEART into the organization. We will enhance your employees’ confidence, boost communication and cooperation, strengthen working relationships, improve decision making and productivity, and increase stress tolerance and emotional resilience.




What is different about EI Experience is that we build our programs with a foundation in emotional intelligence and recognize its importance in building well-rounded managers. While it may sound counter-intuitive to tune into and focus on emotions in the workplace, it is an active component in effectively managing in today’s diverse and virtual workplace. For leaders to increase the effectiveness in their organization, they must have the soft skills necessary to work with others and get the best results from their teams, and this cannot be done without emotional intelligence – connecting with your heart and the heart of others. These soft skills will allow your company to connect authentically, communicate effectively and thrive collectively.

Our goal is to create experiential, skills-based programs that ensure participants can learn, practice and apply what they learn into their jobs immediately. We understand that soft skill development is behaviour-based, which requires participants to have adequate time, support and tools to sufficiently implement the learning into their daily practices at work. 

We offer a combination of EQ Assessments, Private and Group Coaching Sessions, Live Training Workshops, Online Programs, Off-Site Retreats, and Inspirational Keynote Presentations. All of our programs can be customized to meet the needs of your organization.

Our mission statement is to Learn More. Be Better. Teach Others. It is a short statement of our primary purpose: it identifies the goal of our operation and includes our values and organizational philosophies.
