Welcome aboard!

After thirty years in adult education and Jungian psychology, I was absolutely thrilled to experience the groundbreaking scientific research on emotional intelligence and how clearly it connected my personal and professional interests in education and psychology.

I believe that our addEQ Program will provide you with a learning journey to grow your emotional intelligence and make the future happen in the rich and wonderful way you would like it to be.

Enjoy the journey!

Dr. Michael E. Rock

About me:

I am an EQ coach and facilitator who is licensed and certified with the BarOn EQ-iTM (Emotional Quotient - Inventory)TM, the world's only scientifically, statistically and cross culturally validated measurement of emotional intelligence.
