Advantages for your organisation

If you are responsible for harnessing the best from your organisation, we understand your needs.

The 21st century workforce is changing rapidly. As the labour pool becomes more diverse and the global struggle and searching for talent grows ever more competitive, it is especially necessary to meet the demand for well-trained employees with the right skill sets and competencies. Recruiting and retaining the right talent for companies to compete successfully is essential. Businesses around the world have confirmed they are facing a never-before experienced leadership gap.

Corporate cultures are shifting as the Baby Boomer generation retires and the Gen X and Y generations are left to meet the challenges of the new global economy. Fresh models for training and development, mentoring, and education must be found to meet the needs of the new workforce expectation. The new leaders for the 21st Century and beyond must be found and developed.

LM-EQ-Mentor is positioned to meet this demand by delivering value and quantitative results.

Companies must accept that they must reach outside their company confines to meet their own needs as well as those of their employees.

For working professionals, the demand for quality mentoring in an emotionally safe and retribution-free environment is priceless because presently, it mostly does not exist ~ until now ~ with LM-EQ-Mentor.

Our online asynchronous model allows for mentoring at the point of need for the working professional.

For a company, exposing their employees to outside intellectual capital in a collaborative but anonymous manner is also priceless, because again, it too does not exist ~ until now ~ with LM-EQ-Mentor.

In the May, 2010 edition of the Harvard Business Review, authors Meister and Willyerd discussed the benefits of mentoring Gen Y employees using approaches such as the ‘anonymous mentoring’ model employed by LM-EQmentor. They concluded that providing continuous opportunities for professional growth and development is critical for talent retention.

“What an exciting, innovative concept. LM-EQmentor provides a real-time opportunity to pull all the self-help, experiential, business savvy books that have been written over the years and turn that information into knowledge. Whether through personal experience or through mentoring – THIS is live, easy to use, a ‘point in time’ advice just when you need it. I love it and can’t imagine not having it” - EQmentor Client

Advantages for your employees

Amongst the top reasons why employees leave an organisation is a perceived lack of coaching and/or mentoring from their employer. By investing in LM-EQmentor, the ongoing and on-demand mentoring and support offers returns to employees both personally and professionally.

“One of the great things about LM-EQmentor is the safe haven to communicate concerns, connect emotionally, and release frustrations; not with a stranger on an airplane, but with a trusted mentor. It’s like Yoga for the Mind.”EQmentor Mentee

Working adults in general have four primary developmental areas: Physical, Intellectual, Spiritual, and Emotional. We have gyms, libraries, schools, books and places of worship, but where is Life’s Gym where an adult can safely explore experiences to harness knowledge and wisdom to make better daily decisions?

LM-EQmentor is the place for emotional and intellectual exercising allowing the working professional to learn at the point-of-need.

Consider mentoring as a wellness facility within a wellness programme much like your local gym. By working out at the LM-EQmentor gym with a mentor, a mentee can have the following expectations and results.

The best way to improve EQ, without doubt, is EQ Mentoring and perhaps Coaching.

Once individuals have an opportunity to learn about what emotional intelligence is and how it is critical to their success at work and in their lives, they want to improve their ‘EQ’ skills.

The very best way we know to improve your EQ is through one-to-one mentoring.

An EITC EQ Coach will meet with you in person or by telephone to review the results of your EQ-i or EQ-360 Report. They will then discuss with you your vision of where you want to be – your ‘ideal’ future. They will then create a step-wise plan for how you can get from where you are currently to your future desired state and set up regular one-to-one coaching sessions with you to ensure your success at reaching your goals.

Please meet our highly qualified and experienced EQ Coaches: Klaudia Williams and Kim Cairns by clicking on their names in the bar above.

Contact us to discuss how EQ Coaching can enhance your work – and life.
