"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 Emotional Intelligence Practitioner and Corporate Trainer and I partner with organizations to (re)set the company culture. In my work, over the last decade, I have observed that organizations prioritize putting power, hours, and dollars into recruiting the best talent for their teams. However, the highest hurdles are not mounted because of talent or technical skills. The problems that most teams face, all magnified in 2020, are what I call people-problems–trust, communication, conflict, bias, flexibility, engagement, and retention.
People-problems require a different set of skills; emotional and social skills that are rarely taught and often assumed. Together, I want to help shift the workplace, starting with the people in it.

skills by which people, teams, and leaders are able to thrive both personally and professionally, incorporating EI as a master tool for promoting emotional and social intelligence, social growth, and social change.
