Emotional intelligence, also called Emotional Quotient, is the ability to be aware of and to manage emotions and relationships. It’s a pivotal factor in personal and professional success. IQ will get you in the door, but it is your EQ, your ability to connect with others and manage the emotions of yourself and others, that will determine how successful you are in life.
We have all worked with and listened to brilliant people. Some of them were great and… well, some were not so great. The mean and the meek and all those in between can teach us more than they realize. When we look at the truly extraordinary people who inspire and make a difference you will see that they do this by connecting with people at a personal and emotional level. What differentiated them was not their IQ but their EQ – their emotional intelligence.

Capturing the magic…
“In March, several of my clients were really struggling. They had cornerstone marketing events disrupted by the pandemic. Incredibly quickly, Louis helped them to reimagine their conference, explore the possibilities of how a virtual event could capture the magic of an in-person event, and he showed them a path forward.” – Jeremy Miller, Sticky Branding

Please Mom – just stop!

So easy to work with …
I have been contracting LMT for several years now, primarily for sourcing venues to hold training. The service was always amazing and the team so easy to work with. It therefore came as no surprise that when our country was stopped still due to COVID-19, Louis and team were able to pivot and adapt so quickly. I now contract them for all my production needs as our training has moved to the virtual space. They are able to put our Presenters at ease with a new medium … folks who are used to standing in front of a class … and take away all production related worries, leaving them to focus on delivering material to our learners. Service provision in both English and French, across all times zones, has been awesome. It’s easy to see that as a company, they put great priority on being efficient and effective … booking and billing are as easy as actual classroom time. A pleasure to work with AND recommend. – Jane Bradbrook, Program Manager, MFD and PFS, RBC
We love giving pleasure …
“Learngistics team is always quick to respond and help, even at the 11th hour! They are a pleasure to work with and have been a great help in assisting with the virtual production of our larger online events.” – Shelby Gobbo, Go Roundtable
