“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
— John Quincy Adams (6th President of the United States) —
Facilitated learning and growth applications for all employee levels including exco and senior leadership such as building a cohesive and coherent leadership team, how leaders can build cohesive and coherent teams, emotional intelligence training and testing, brain-based coaching, people managers’ employee recognition training workshops, or other custom-designed initiatives based on identified needs.
Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the ability to use emotions effectively. Research shows this blending of thinking plus feeling drives effective decision-making, engagement, and superior collaboration. There is clear evidence that emotionally intelligent leaders are more successful. One of the most important applications of EQ is in helping leaders foster a workplace climate conducive to high performance. These workplaces yield significantly higher productivity, retention, and profitability, and emotional intelligence appears key to this competitive advantage. While IQ and other factors are important, emotional intelligence is essential to optimal performance. Emotional Intelligence is more than twice as predictive of business performance than purely cognitive intelligence and is more predictive of business performance than are employee skill, knowledge and expertise.
Principles of Results Coaching
Brain-based coaching is all about helping coachees to achieve their goals by improving the coachee's quality of thinking through a brain-friendly, structured process that facilitates quality and quantity attention. Coaching can be done on its own or as part of a leadership team development process.

Employee recognition is largely misunderstood and untapped. It is not a programme. It is a leadership best practice. CultureCode trains leaders how to use employee recognition strategically and in alignment with your organisation's purpose and values, whether or not you have a formal recognition programme in place. No matter how well a formal recognition programme is designed and managed, if recognition is not incorporated into the daily practices of employees, and specifically leaders, employee engagement is not likely to be significantly impacted and therefore the potential productivity, retention, increase in values-aligned behaviours and ultimately performance gains may be a missed opportunity.
CultureCode can design and deliver bespoke interactive learning across a wide range of emotional and social intelligence topics grounded in neuroscience including, for example, Collaboration, brain-friendly conversations skills (for performance management, challenging conversations, etc.), creativity and innovation, change, diversity and tolerance, resilience, stress, care, employee engagement, employee recognition, rewiring your culture, best practices/ new thinking in people practices, etc. Contact CultureCode for your custom requirements from once-off 'mini workshops' to longer interventions for specific employee audiences or as modules within your existing leadership development programme(s).
