Emotional intelligence gives us the edge to not only understand why change is difficult or problematic, but why we personally find it so difficult. Increasing your emotional intelligence will enable you to connect more meaningfully with those around you and improve how you make positive changes in your life.


This course has been designed with the aim to help you understand emotional intelligence by enabling you to recognise the need to change behaviours or thoughts. You will also learn how to leverage positives in your life to change the so-called negatives. Many people are dissatisfied with who they feel they are or what they have become. Many people want to change things in their lives but find that personal change is hard and sometimes scary; that is true for most of us. Through emotional intelligence, you can connect powerfully with others by being conscious of your intent and be courageous enough to try new things when you realise your old ways do not serve you.

Subject Expert

Keith Cunningham spent most of his career in heavy industry and corporates where emotional intelligence was not in high demand. After realising that what was important to him was not important to the people he worked for, Keith and his wife, Liz, left the corporate world, and spent seven months travelling around the world, exploring and reconnecting with themselves and each other. On returning to South Africa, Liz and Keith started EQuip – a company specialising in and focussed on emotional intelligence.

Keith has spent the last 15 years working with a range of companies, ranging from multinationals to start-ups enabling people to see beyond their comfort zones and find meaning in the work they do or making changes that serve them and the other important people in their lives. Emotional intelligence is learnable; we just need to make the subconscious conscious to start our journey and change our world.
