To start on the addEQ Program means taking time to reflect on your life, what it means, and how your feelings and emotions affect so much of your life: its quality, its depth, and its enjoyment. A main theme through the addEQ Program is the sentiment of Socrates: "The unexamined life is not worth living." Put positively, of course, the examined life is worth living. But this examination also means that we have the courage to look at ourselves in the mirror and choose growth over the status quo in our lives.


The notion of emotional intelligence popularly known as EQ has caught the public's imagination in a very dynamic way. Consider EQ as the emotional energy and grace that we bring to our relationships.

With our addEQ Program we want to give you a learning and development space to explore extraordinary relationships that resonate in your personal and business life.

The core inspirations of our addEQ Program are as follows:

  • Knowing how to learn is the key to life.
  • The human journey is a learning journey.
  • Knowing how to learn means knowing how to navigate life.
  • Learning can take you to places you never dreamed possible.
  • Learning, growth, challenge, excitement are rewards in themselves.
  • No one can ever take away what you embody in your heart and mind.
  • Learning is imagination in action, going places "no person's gone before."
What our EQ program includes:

The first part of the program consists of the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-iTM), which you will receive in hard copy form.

The EQ-iTM is a confidential self-assessment comprising 133 statements that provides you with an opportunity to describe yourself by indicating to what extent each statement is true of the way you feel, think, or act most of the time and in most situations. There are five possible responses to each sentence.

  1. Very seldom or Not true of me
  2. Seldom true of me
  3. Sometimes true of me
  4. Often true of me
  5. Very often true of me or True of me
Once we have received your completed self assesment back from you, we will send you your confidential 8-page Personal Development Report in hard copy form. This report will provide you with benchmarks for the following 15 Emotional Intelligence Competencies:

Self-Awareness Flexibility Stress Tolerance
Empathy Self-Regard Self-Actualization
Assertiveness Independence Problem Solving
Reality Testing Social Responsibility Interpersonal Relationship
Impulse Control Optimism Happiness

Our on-line EQ program will then allow you access to 15 separate modules that will provide you with interactive self-study material created by Dr. Michael Rock to help you improve your emotional intelligence capability. The total on-line program amounts to approximately 40 hours of self-study.

The on-line program has been designed to be your personal learning space that you can log onto 24 hours per day - 7 days a week for 6 months.
