Seattle, WA – The key to personal and professional success is emotional intelligence: the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to manage interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.
Clara Doctolero, PsyD, is the founder of Ei Resources, an executive coaching practice specializing in developing and guiding emotional intelligence skills.
“Even great leaders can benefit from this coaching,” says Clara. “Unlike your IQ, emotional intelligence can be developed and improved.”
As a therapist, Clara specialized in dialectical behavioral therapy, or DBT, a more skills-based approach to therapy. When paired with DBT, all the skills are aimed toward developing higher emotional intelligence; decision making, stress management, emotional self-awareness, and interpersonal relationships are all enhanced by emotional intelligence.
And this skills-based approach is incredibly practical. In session, Clara will often utilize two unique assessment tools: the EQ-i 2.0 and the EQ 360, which measure emotional intelligence. The EQ-i provides both coach and client with hard data from which to begin the coaching process to develop goals, increase empathy and decrease impulsiveness.
Clara says the long-term of her practice is to help create a more emotionally literate society, a society of individuals who know how to manage anger, shame and change.
“I love seeing the reaction from my clients when they get it,” says Clara. “It communicates to me how much this work makes sense. My goal is for individuals to begin their emotional intelligence journey as soon as they can.”
