    I think in order to grasp a real level of understanding and mastery of positive psychology, the sailboat metaphor (explained in this masterclass) is a really lovely way of coming to a well-organized understanding. The way it’s organized, the way that you have put all of this together in this framework I think has been really well done.

    The Emotional Intelligence Coaching Masterclass is in a class of its own.  As with all of the PositivePsychology.com products it is well written, thoroughly researched, and practical.  It is suitable for both early career coaches as well as more experienced coaches who are looking to deepen their knowledge and hone their EI skills. Unlike so many other emotional intelligence resources, this EI Coaching Masterclass dives much deeper into the construct and provides excellent context.

    I love working with PositivePsychology.com s products, whether it is something from the Positive Psychology Toolkit or an entire course such as Mindfulness X. So I was looking forward to diving into their new course on Emotional Intelligence. Just as with their other products, Emotional Intelligence is thoroughly researched, logically built, and easy for practitioners to tailor to their audience.

    I would be interested in doing this master class but the cost of $750 if far too expensive. I have been out of town for over 2 weeks (family deaths) and just saw your notice. If the master class is offered again at a much lower price, please let me know. I am on a very fixed income.

      Hi Adrian,

      Thank you for your interest in the Emotional Intelligence Masterclass. While we aren’t currently running any promotions on this product, it’s a great time to consider it as we very recently had this program approved by the APA to sponsor continuing education credits for psychologists.

      This is on top of the benefits already included, such as a certificate of completion, accompanying workbook and trainer manual materials, and extended usage rights to use your own branding on the materials. You’ll also have lifetime access to any updates/new features on the product.

      Let us know if you have any questions and we’d be happy to help 🙂
