Meet Kingsley Grant

Speaker, author, and coach – – Kingsley Grant helps people manage their emotions in order to become better at relationships and in their jobs. 

Just before Kingsly’s mother lost her battle with cancer she said that, if given a second chance at life, she would have become a nurse. This struck a chord with him. Not wanting anyone else to wish for a different life while laying upon their death bed, he decided upon a career path that would help as many people as possible. His mission was to help others live their dreams. No one should take their dreams to the grave as his mother did.

Understanding “Emotelligence”

Emotelligence is the art of succeeding where others fail. It’s the combination of emotion and intelligence and, once fully combined, gives up a lot of strength and support.

Do you feel like there’s a pushback to your leadership? What about an undermining effort by some? Are people distancing themselves from you? How about giving you a less than stellar effort in accomplishing tasks?If you identified with any of the above, becoming an Emotelligent Leader is the key to turn things around. Emotelligent pronounced EE-MOH-TE-LI-GENCE = Emotion + Intelligence Emotelligent Leaders recognize that people are their most valuable asset.

They also recognize that the most important task they have is to identify and manage their emotions, as well as the emotions of others. Research by the respected Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) in the U.S. found that the three main reasons for leadership failure are difficulty in handling change, inability to work well in a team, and poor interpersonal relations. This book provides the antidote. As you turn the pages, you will discover the 7 Essential Ingredients for becoming the leader everyone loves and wants to follow. Your confidence will soar like never before. These are the ingredients leaders who failed wish they had.

Bosses boss, leaders lead

“Your working with leaders, not a product.” This is why leading with emotional intelligence is so important within organizations! There is a big difference

People will champion you (as a leader) if you give hem reasons to do so!  People do not follow leaders, they follow what they see the leaders doing. It’s time to move past being a “boss” and lean into being a leader, at all times and in all ways. You can do this by being more self-aware, managing your emotions, and having the foresight to realize your role is to help people, to raise them up! You can make your employees a rockstar by pouring yourself into them. Check out this awesome article from Kingsly diving more into this!

Our children are watching!

Our behaviors and actions are always being watched by our loved ones, especially our children. 

After going back to school and changing his career later in life, Kingsley is proud to be a  source of inspiration to his children. They see all of his hard work and work ethic and their pride and support provide a sense of accomplishment. Just like his children, Kingsly aims to inspire other people and leaders to make better decisions and become the best versions of themselves.
