Welcome to Beyond EI

We believe Emotional Intelligence is the foundation for a better world. Our clients agree.

We are excited to share we are expanding beyond the original scope of our work, leading us to redefine our identity in our mission to democratize Emotional Intelligence through its practical application.

In our desire to incorporate the growing body of neuroscientific research and draw more intentionally from diverse voices in the field, we are rebranding from Goleman EI to Beyond EI, as we reimagine what it means to be emotionally intelligent.

Though we remain deeply grateful to Daniel Goleman and other thought leaders for their contributions to the theory of Emotional Intelligence, we are nonetheless moving away from his brand as our company name and will no longer be affiliated with Daniel Goleman.

Embodying Emotional Intelligence is the baseline, but our ability to navigate all of our perceptions wisely is the litmus for a life well lived. Let us commit to both, as we strive to understand ourselves and each other better and live together on this planet with grace and dignity.

By developing our own awareness and the various perspectives it affords us along with a commitment towards conscious sensemaking can we each learn to take greater responsibility for our actions and our outcomes. What could be more important than recognizing and acting skillfully upon what we have influence over?

Join us as we explore new frontiers of practice, knowledge, and innovation to bring about the best in ourselves, each other and the clients and organizations we serve across the globe. Let us learn to embody what it means to BEI!

Welcome to Beyond EI

We believe Emotional Intelligence is the foundation for a better world. Our clients agree.

We are excited to share that our platform to democratize Emotional Intelligence through its practical application is expanding beyond the bounds of how we originally conceived of the scope and meaning of our work as well as our identity in the process.

We have made the conscious decision to expand beyond the Goleman brand and model of EI to include other equally important and relevant voices in the field inviting us to reimagine what it means to be emotionally intelligent.

Recent neuroscience findings on perception and emotion as constructed experiences holds important insights and implications for how we can work with not only our emotions but our perceptions more skillfully and effectively.

By developing our own awareness and the various perspectives it affords us along with a habit of conscious sensemaking, we can each take greater responsibility for our actions and our outcomes. What could be more important than recognizing and acting skillfully upon what we have influence over?

We are grateful to Daniel Goleman and other thought leaders in the field for the seminal work they have done to lay the groundwork in the theory of Emotional Intelligence.

And we feel now is the time to expand beyond the relatively few voices to whom we have historically looked for insight in this space to a more diverse collection of voices, across a variety of disciplines, on how we can apply and embody the wisdom of EI to benefit each other and this planet.

It is with that intent, we are rebranding the name of our company from Goleman EI to Beyond EI, moving away from our singular affiliation with Daniel Goleman, as we continue to expand our work and support our Emotional Intelligence Certified Coaches across the globe as we endeavor to live and embody what it means to BEI!

Beyond Emotional Intelligence: A Guide to Accessing Your Full Potential

By S. Michele Nevarez

Discover the hidden inner workings of your mind so you can break unhelpful habits and set yourself on the path to achieving your full potential.

Beyond Emotional Intelligence reveals how our ingrained mental tendencies can either help or hinder us, depending on how conscious we are of their influence over our lives. Whether we seek to set and achieve our desired outcomes, improve our relationships, or live in alignment with what we value most, we need emotional intelligence (EI) to identify and overcome the mental patterns that may be keeping us stuck.

In this book, you’ll embark on 12 Self-Discoveries that will help you get to know yourself, so you can stop getting in your own way. You’ll learn how, with practice, you can retrain your mind to develop new thought patterns that will serve you better as you work toward your life’s aspirations. 

As CEO of Beyond EI, helping companies and people embody their inner wisdom, Michele brings a 25-year-long career working in business as an executive and leadership coach to bear on her work with clients.

Emotional Intelligence (EI) differentiates top performers beyond IQ and technical abilities. The Harvard Business Review calls it “a key leadership skill,” and the World Economic Forum named Emotional Intelligence as a core work-related skill, which is predicted to “be in higher demand across industries than narrow technical skills.” EI enables us to understand and navigate our own emotions as well as our relationships. This skill set is vital throughout our lives—whether we’re leading a team, raising a family, or simply want to make a positive impact in the world.

We have supported initiatives as diverse as the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, the DQ Institute, in association with the World Economic Forum, and the daily life of schools, hospitals, and businesses across the world. We believe that everyone is a leader; we all impact others through our relationships.

Beyond EI translates theory into accessible and transformative practices linked to habit change. Our programs offer scalable and experiential learning, empowering individuals and organizations to bring about the positive change they want to see in the world.
