My name is Valerie Keels, and serve as Head of DC office Services with Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance in Washington, DC. As HR business partner for the DC office, it is incumbent upon me to both utilize emotional intelligence skills, as well as coach staff on the development of those skills. This led me to complete the EQ-i 2.0 certification program with Leadership Call. With all of the EI information available, I was not sure what to expect through this certification, but since the Leadership Call certification was accepted by both HRCI and SHRM, I felt this program was legitimate and “fit for purpose.” The program trainers, Ed and Chris Hennessy where knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. They provided a very thorough overview of the EQ-i 2.0 tool, and delivered comprehensive training on the interpretation and coaching of results. I am convinced that it was their knowledge of the tool, training skills, and impactful preparation materials and advice that led to my being able to successfully pass the certification exam. I am totally psyched and ready to use the EQ-i 2.0 in my work environments

Ed and Chris make a great training team – the materials were meticulously organized by Chris, who also ran the pre-and post-training activities flawlessly. Ed was a great trainer, kept us on perfect track while still being flexible and ensuring we had the info we needed in order to emerge from the class with confidence. Learned much more than I would have expected in such a short time.

I did my homework before selecting Leadership Call for my certification instruction and the program far exceeded the high expectations I had going in. From my initial telephone call, throughout the certification training and beyond Chris and Ed delivered excellence at every turn. They are overall wise instructors whose knowledge and skill prepare you to immediately begin using the assessment with your clients to its fullest. Ed’s knowledge of the tool, sharing of practical tips and strategies learned through experience and his overall knowledge of EQ is invaluable. I am certified in several instruments and this by far was the most focused, insightful, and information packed program I have experienced and it gave me the confidence and knowledge needed to begin using the tool to its fullest upon certification. Ed and Chris deliver more than just a quality program they are driven to do whatever it takes to help you succeed in becoming certified and into the future. I have no hesitation in recommending Leadership Call!

Thank you for opening my eyes to the ‘practitioner’ side of Emotional Intelligence. This program provided me with a practical and every day application of emotional intelligence and strategies for both personal wellbeing and career success, not just academic theory.

Ed and Chris make a dynamic team. Their depth of knowledge, passion for EQ-i, and attention to detail made the entire learning process effective. They create a warm, responsive learning environment underpinned by a strong professional approach and commitment to the learner’s success.

Between executive development programs, clinical certifications, & coaching programs, over the past 15 years - please know that you provided me with one of the most relevant experiences I’ve had in years. From your marketing which captured me, to Chris’ super communication & direction, the quality content, sequenced learning, to Ed’s focus, energy, and candor for the live-online sessions - I am thrilled with the quality. Above all, few classes provide an authentic experience but you two nailed it! The service you’re providing to ultimately make the world a more emotionally and socially intelligent place is appreciated!. I’ve already recommended that two coach-colleagues join you for an upcoming class (from Toronto and Singapore) and will certainly continue.

I am really excited about everything I learnt in this training. The materials were well organized and the team at Leadership Call was responsive, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. Out of this, I’ve gained a deeper understanding of myself, knowledge of how to help others gain similar insights, lots of helpful tools, a certification and some new friends. Thank you, Leadership Call, for a job well done!
