Professional supervision and business coach for Nelson NZ

“I worked with Gina for 6 months, both myself and my team have seen a positive change in the way that we communicate. Gina was able to understand my issues and provide me with the skills to lead change” - MM, Team leader

“Having someone to talk to who could help me reflect on my leadership and plan a way forward with some of the challenges I faced was hugely beneficial. Gina has a very natural ability to help people unravel an issue, break down the core components and then package it back up as a planned course of action.”

“Your approach, understanding and ability to communicate with me is precisely what I have needed. You interpret what I am saying very well and I appreciate your considerate process, I feel almost capable when I am working with you.”

SC- Business Owner

"As a small business owner I have at times lacked support and I really get this from Gina. Gina is extremely passionate in her desire to see me do well and I have feel well supported, both personally and professionally. I know she will help me to create amazing success in both my business and personally.”

SN- Business Owner

"Gina is an engaging speaker and very inspiring. Her workshop content was well researched, specific to the participants and very informative. She is a valued member of any business group."

– Sarah Holmes, Manager, Nelson Tasman Business Trust

"I really like working with Gina for her enthusiasm, willingness to try new ideas. She holds a special interest in helping small business owners."

– Business Mentor

"Gina is lovely! So motivational. She’s given me direction and focus and also confidence I’m on the right track."

– RL Business owner

“Burn-out is something other people experience.  I had no idea that’s what I was going through or how it was affecting my productivity and ultimately my business. Gina was a god send, she got me moving again quickly and together we were able to meet some very significant deadlines”.

– Business owner

"My boss tells me that he can really notice the difference since Gina and I have been working together.  Apparently, my approach is much more ‘considered’.  Personally, I have found the new skills handy in lots of areas, not just work.” 

- Technician / middle management

What is Emotional Intelligence (EI)?

EI is our ability to be aware of our emotions, to understand why we are feeling a certain way and then to choose how we express and manage those emotions; both in ourselves and in others. EI is about ‘being smart with feelings’.

Key Concepts:

  • Emotions influence decisions, behaviour and performance which in turn affects our productivity.
  • There is a direct link between the way people feel and the way people perform at work.
  • In high-performing organisations, people feel significantly more engaged, cared for, valued, proud and motivated than those in low-performing organisations.  Conversely, in low-performing workplaces people feel significantly more fearful, stressed, disempowered and uncertain.
  • Leaders need to be skilled at identifying, understanding and managing emotions in themselves and others, to help drive the best decisions, behaviour and performance.

Core Competencies:

The World Economic Forum has listed EI as number 6 in the top ten skills required by 2020. Emotionally Intelligent leaders strive to improve their demonstration and application of the core EI skills of; Self-Awareness, Awareness of others, Authenticity, Emotional Reasoning, Self-Management and Inspiring the performance of others.  Our ability to work in these ‘productive’ leader states determines what drives performance.  When applied in leadership, Emotional Intelligence (EI) facilitates our ability to identify and use emotions, in ourselves and others,  to get positive results.

  • EI is more than twice as predictive of business performance than purely cognitive intelligence, and is more predictive of business performance than skill, knowledge, and expertise.*

Harvard Business Review, “Breakthrough ideas for tomorrow’s business agenda”, April 2003

  • Leaders with higher EI get better team engagement and Teams with higher engagement are;
    • 50% less likely to have high staff turnover.
    • 56% more likely to have higher than average customer loyalty.
    • 38% more likely to have above average productivity.
    • 27% more likely to report higher profitability.*
