Professional Intelligence

Customized training in Soft Skills

Because technical skills are only 25% of what a professional needs to succeed.

We promote key personal skills in the work environment: effective communication, new ways of working, emotional management of change, and much more.

What is Professional Intelligence? All those skills necessary to achieve a successful professional career. To become a person who exceeds the expectations of the position and is transformed into a key part of the company.

The difference between being an acceptable professional and being an essential professional. 

And this has been proven*. 75% of professional development is linked to emotional, social, and mental skills. To one’s ability to adapt to the environment. To the way we relate to others. To our way of dealing with problems.

Companies with a vocation for leadership understand this. 

Obviously the specific technical knowledge for the position itself is basic.

But in a complex world, which changes at breakneck speed and where technology absorbs many tasks, what we know is no longer so important, but rather what we are capable of doing.

Because the success of a company does not depend on having the most qualified professionals, but on having highly qualified people for collaboration, with a growth mindset, working for the benefit of the organization.

However, professional intelligence is not studied in universities or business schools.

And companies face the big problem of having highly qualified professionals, who nevertheless lack training in Professional Intelligence. 

For this reason, we develop tailor-made training programs that enhance the cross-cutting skills of teams.

From management positions, to middle managers, and the bedrock of the organization.

We guide the people management department regarding the contents and methodologies most aligned with the current (and future) needs of the organization. To raise their sights, accelerate development, and achieve a corporate growth mindset.

We detect the key transversal skills for the success of each company, we design tailored training and implement them with accelerated learning methodologies.

How we teach Professional Intelligence

Our hallmark is to always remain at the cutting edge by

importing newly-emerging ideas from the best business schools and international companies.

We teach with our own accelerated learning method, created after years of research and experience, raising professional intelligence in work teams.

We base our work on neuroscience and use digital tools to reinforce learning. Apps for gamification or augmented reality that energize training courses and surprise people.

We know that many training courses end up being ignored. That is why we focus 200% on shortening the distance between learning and behavior. We provide tools and channels that generate new habits right from the outset.

We adapt the training courses and conferences to the most effective form for your company. Face-to-face, online, live sessions, training pills, apps etc. We understand that professionals have little time and that each company is different. That is why we are hyperflexible.

Our Professional Intelligence Training Programs

We develop tailored Professional Intelligence programs, because each company needs to promote different skills.

We can adapt to what you need, but these are the themes that we master perfectly: 

Emotional skills

  • Self-knowledge:. It is the best work tool for a professional. The premise. Because the better you know yourself, the better you can manage yourself, develop new approaches, and transform habits. We use diagnostic tools such as Insight, DISC, or NBI to offer feedback on evidence and start a path of self-discovery.
  • Emotional management: Learn to manage emotions such as anxiety and stress in situations of uncertainty, based on Emotional Intelligence. Maintain energy levels and mindfulness to be productive in any environment.
  • Positive attitude: An injection of encouragement and motivation. Understand what happens in our brain when we live in situations of uncertainty and how to train a positive attitude.
