The Foundation for Success

Almost ALL organizational, leadership, employee, and workplace struggles can be improved by raising emotional intelligence. It is the foundation for growth, inclusion, innovation, productivity, mental health, impact, and success. Sonya has spent her career educating others about emotional intelligence – what it is, how to embrace our human superpowers, and the way E.Q. can dramatically improve the workplace. It has been the foundation of all her work for 23 years. From intro workshops to deep leadership training, Sonya is a leading expert in the power of emotional intelligence.

Beating Burnout & Building Resilience

Burnout is a huge epidemic, with more than 70% of workers experiencing burnout in just the last year. Burnout leads to a decline in productivity, mental health, team cohesiveness and so much more. Preventing burnout & helping their team manage stress is now a “have to” for all organizations. But burnout is a complex topic and providing the right tools to navigate today’s work environment requires an expert who understands the cause of burnout & the right ways to build resilience. Sonya has helped thousands of leaders eliminate burnout & build resiliency in themselves & their organizations.

Emotional Intelligence is the bridge to DEI

Diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives are required for growth, success & sustainability in today’s workplace, but HOW you implement these initiatives matter. So often DEI initiatives are performative, they look good on the outside, but fail to deliver true transformation on the inside. If DEI is the destination, emotional intelligence is the bridge. Raising your organization’s E.Q is the foundation for building an equitable workplace & an inclusive culture. It requires navigating unconscious bias and building cultures of empathy & psychological safety. From whole employee events to intimate HR conferences, Sonya has the experience to make a difference.

Motivation, Mental Health & More

Increasing productivity requires an inside-out approach. Understanding human psychology & motivation, and prioritizing mental health & workplace culture have more impact on productivity than outside-in approaches like time management & changes to organizational structure. Sonya has been helping organizations shift the way they work for 23 years. She offers events around goal-setting, energy management (the new time management), mental health & well-being, and more. If you want an increase in productivity, you have to be willing to get to the roots of what creates real change.

From Transactional to Transformational

Transactional leadership is no longer sustainable, we need transformational leadership to navigate the future of work. Transformational leadership comes from our willingness to be “super” human leaders, not beyond human, but more human. It is about building a leadership model with empathy, connection & trust at the core. Emotionally intelligent leaders & managers know how to regulate themselves & relate to others. Sonya is brilliant at bringing these leadership resources to an all-employee event or taking it deeper and more specific for your Leadership teams.

We Need More Women in Power

Women in leadership change the world! Diversity in the leadership team has proven to bring more innovation, success & wisdom to organizations around the world. Empowering women isn’t about a hashtag or cheerleading, but about understanding & acknowledging the powers they bring to the table. Sonya has spent two decades advocating for women in the workplace, working to bridge the gender gap, and teaching organizations how to follow women’s lead. Her events are powerful for organizations ready for change, Women’s History Month or ERG groups focused on women’s issues.
