EQ-i Coach founder, executive coach, and author of Emotion at Work: Unleashing the Secret Power of Emotional Intelligence Roberta Moore’s EQ journey began when she was working as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in North Carolina. After learning about Dr. Reuven Bar-On’s research into the role of emotional intelligence in success, she began to notice that the professionals who came to her seeking help for personal problems almost always needed help with their careers, too. If they were having trouble communicating with their spouse or loved one, she found that they were, likewise, having trouble communicating with a boss or direct report. With this discovery, Moore realized the power that EQ skills had to transform lives and help people across all industries achieve both personal and professional success.

“My vision is a world where everyone is emotionally intelligent. Workspaces where emotionally intelligent people collaborate in highly meaningful ways, communicate effectively, and have fun interpersonal relationships.”
– Roberta Moore

Certified in Emotional Intelligence through Multi-Health Systems, Inc., Moore draws on her nearly four decades of experience in executive coaching, professional services, and psychotherapy to help her clients understand and unleash the power of EQ to achieve professional brilliance and build rewarding interpersonal relationships. Moore’s work earned her a 2020 Enterprising Women of the Year Award, one of the most prestigious recognitions for women business owners, as well as a 2020 Globee Women World Female Achievers Champion of the Year Award. Moore is also a contributing author to the 2020 book The Anatomy of Accomplishment: Your Guide to Bigger, Better, Bolder Business Results, an anthology of professional wisdom from women business leaders across the country.

For Moore, her work as an EQ coach is about more than just making businesses and leaders more profitable; it’s about sharing the power that EQ has to transform lives and help people across all industries achieve not only professional success, but personal happiness and fulfillment, too.

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.”

CEO of an EQ-i Coach not-for-profit agency client

“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!”

Nichole R. Mercier, Ph.D., Managing Director, Office of Technology Management, Washington University
