Consulting in Organizational Emotional Intelligence (OEQ)

Emotional Intelligence is defined as the capacity to understand our emotions and manage them effectively as well as to understand and effectively manage the emotions of others. When individuals apply these skills, they achieve a higher level of self-awareness and the ability to regulate emotions to create better, positive outcomes.

As we move into the realm of Organizational Emotional Intelligence (OEQ), we begin asking how the organization as a whole can begin to operate in the same manner.  When activated, OEQ allows leadership to recognize, even anticipate, the barometer of things such as engagement, job satisfaction, openness, customer service and experience, retention, and loss prevention.

Saxus Leadership Development's Consulting is focused on one thing- bringing our clients to their switch-point with OEQ.

Our process consists of multiple tactics that include, but are not limited to:

  • Visioning: We facilitate visioning sessions with key stakeholders that build ground-level buy in and propel the organization into a "forward motion" state.

  • Coaching: We coach leadership to success by helping each individual navigate their own personal goals and barriers while keeping our eyes focused on the vision.

  • Meeting Facilitation: We lead high-energy, outcome-driven meetings with your leadership team.  We use these meetings to build excitement and cohesiveness between the organization and its people.



Step 1: Consultation

Before we can work together, we need to get to know your organizations needs and make sure there is a good fit.  Saxus uses a technique called Appreciative Inquiry to gain a deep understanding of what your needs are.  During this time, we identify 3 things:

  1. What is the overall culture of the organization?

  2. As an organization, where have you been, where are you now, and where do you want to go?

  3. Are the organizations stakeholders agreeable to the process?


Step 2: Stakeholder Interviews

As we move into the process and agree to work together, we will have a group interview and individual 60 minute interviews with key stakeholders.  During the interview time, we will gather data to help us put together an overall Organizational Assessment (OA).  The OA is a detailed look at the same three questions as above from the perspective of the individuals who make it work.  The OA is delivered to you in a digital format once all the stakeholder interviews have been completed.


Step 3: Building a Strategic Plan

Now that we know what the pulse of the organization looks like, we build a plan for engagement.  This plan can consist of a variety of tools and tactics as well as a schedule which includes regular check-ins to evaluate success.
