Research on tens of thousands of people across the globe clearly shows us that happiness and success, both at work and at home, are far more attainable than most of us believe. This is where we bring the science into it. Roughly 85% of what drives both personal and professional success can be found in a what neuroscientists call Emotional Intelligence (EQ).

Our team is diverse where it’s important and convergent where it’s critical. We have a combined 45 years in Technology, 40 years in creating and delivering corporate training, 35 years of project management, 20 years in EQ, and we’re only getting started...

"Having Dr. Karumanchery, come in has been ground-breaking for us and has served as a baseline for our organizational development work. Since we began our EQ journey with Leeno, our over-all staff survey results are up positively 20%, our sick time is down 25%, and our voluntary turn-over rate is down to 1%. I know we could not have achieved those great results without Leeno and the team at Enkidu. We couldn't be happier."

workplace cultures across our member organizations.
At the launch of this initiative, Dr. Karumanchery, Enkidu's Chief Diversity Officer, provided our leadership group with an informative and impactful presentation regarding the critical importance of EQ in developing healthy and productive relationships in both our professional and personal lives.
The engaging approach and sense of humour, coupled with his extensive knowledge of human psychology, put our leaders at ease and facilitated powerful self-reflection and learning across the team.
Our leadership team is excited to be working with Enkidu on this initiative, and know, that with their support, we will realize our goal of building an inclusive and emotionally strong organizational culture that can support our staff, our clients and the communities we serve."
