Many people choose to live a life of quiet desperation not knowing what causes them to behave in certain ways and not realizing how that impacts their relationships. I invite you to engage in the purposeful and challenging work of self-exploration discussed in this book.

What Our

EQ-i Clients Say

“With Roberta’s background in both business and psychology, she understood our environment and how to navigate it. She is a humble, grounded leader and she knew how to draw things out of individuals and then addressed those issues in a very professional, non-judgmental way. The coaching has helped our entire team…we have become more communicative, approachable, and thoughtful in our responses. This change has made people more comfortable bringing ideas to the executive team…and the more ideas considered, the more our business flourishes! We are better listeners, which has strengthened our relationships with each other and also with our clients.”

Gerard M Hempstead, CPA, CFP®, Managing Partner, Northwestern Mutual – St. Louis

“Now our culture is one where better up-front accountability explanations occur, with a softer, more human approach. The team communication and collaboration is greatly improved, resulting in better ideas, a more streamlined work process, and an enhanced workplace environment.”

“I first met Roberta through Focus St. Louis’ CORO Women in Leadership program and was immediately blown away by Roberta and emotional intelligence. Not only did I learn so much about myself and my emotional intelligence weaknesses, Roberta shared tips and techniques for how to improve. I have since invited Roberta to work with my own organization and our leadership teams. Thank you, Roberta!”

Carrie Gallagher Crompton, President 2018-20, Junior League of St. Louis

“I went into Roberta’s class not knowing what EQ was or how it pertained to me, but I left very interested in the subject. I purchased Roberta’s book and am very interested in exploring EQ subject matter and expanding my EQ. It was a great class and a great presentation. Thank you!”

Nathan Webb, St. Louis Branch Manager, dormakaba

“Roberta enabled my team to think introspectively about their contributions to the team and office culture, as well as helping us all understand how we can maximize overall performance as we refine our individual contributions using emotional intelligence. After her workshop, there wasn’t a single individual on my 23-person team that didn’t find Roberta’s explanation and activities helpful!”
