Do right by your people.
Leaders and educators* need strong emotional intelligence skills to thrive in their work, sport and life.
When you work with humans, your emotional intelligence needs to be the star of the show so that your vision and expertise can land and be absorbed (and used) by your people.
(* if you're a leader, you're an educator; if you're an educator, you're a leader.)
Did you say conflict?

Hi! I'm Iggy. It's nice to meet you.
Emotionally intelligent leadership can be challenging.
No one enjoys being on a team that is underperforming, struggling to maintain a positive culture, mired in poor communication and lack of trust, or working with leaders who are unable to find their authentic leadership voice. Literally no one. When everyone turns to you to fix these complicated issues who do you turn to?
Are you done with tolerating crap behavior from your co-workers and teammates?
You can create more trust and use your energy for fun, awesome and productive things instead of getting drained by the stress of trying to ignore, or not so effectively deal with, "that person" or "that situation".
Stop wasting your energy sweeping things under the rug.
Let's get to know each other and talk about your situation.

I work with people and teams. Here's what some of them had to say about the experience:
The best part has been intentionally looking at my own challenges, sharing them and having accountability and support in overcoming them. - Scar Trek, DC Rollergirls
I think the part that awed me the most was the culture we created amongst ourselves. We were all very vulnerable and upfront about our goals and ambitions and with that openness came a natural progression of important dialogue and feedback. It was very cool to see how comfortable we were with one another by the end of the whole thing. - Big Bang Fury, Rose City Rollers
"Working with Iggy opened lines of communication that were not even real last year - and that's what we needed so bad."- Jenna Specht
"Working with Iggy has been amazing. She really helped us identify where overall we are a pretty strong team and where our weaknesses are and helped us become even stronger." - Amber Sommer
Iggy's work with us has helped align our actions with our goals and build a driven and positive team culture." - Sarah Gaither
"What I like about your style in general is that in my 15+ years working in corporate environments sometimes I feel like teambuilding or coaches that are brought in are are a little bit patronizing and I've felt like "I ain't got time for this s$#!". I didn't even realize you were doing what you were doing at our last meeting. I was like, "Who's that person? I like what she's doing." It was as simple as that." - Ryan Sage
I work with people like these folks, in these types of places.
