"I have questions about people, social influences, and social truths–a prober of intrapersonal and interpersonal behavior, I live in constant search for answers. I am a student of humanity..."
Hi, I am Tieko, an Educator, Corporate Trainer and Emotional Intelligence Practitioner partnering with organizations to (re)set the company culture. In the last decade of working closely with brands, I realize the hurdles we need to jump are rarely mounted because of technical skills. And that is because organizations usually put power, hours, and dollars into recruiting talent for their teams. The problem most teams face –and magnified in 2020– is encouraging the behaviors of people and their desire to work beyond talent in the most crucial areas of success like employee engagement, productive communication, addressing implicit biases, unboxing creativity, and adapting to change. Success-promoting behaviors, including emotional and social skills, have been scored as soft, but I'm convinced it's the "soft skills" that make the best people and best outcomes. Leaders are at the mercy of what they prioritize as worthy investments. Together we intentionally and unapologetically invest in people.
