The greatest challenges business executives face today have to do with building and mobilizing social capital. For over twenty years we have focused exclusively on the people side of leadership development. Our executive coaching model grew from the science behind emotional intelligence. Since AEI's inception, we have continued to refine a proprietary process that allows us to develop leaders rigorously and effectively over the course of six to twelve months. We do highly individualized work while simultaneously providing a business framework and curriculum that reinforces the relationship between an individual's leadership potential and the opportunities for meeting critical business objectives.
Although we have broadly defined a set of programs, we do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. As a boutique firm, we are able and willing to be creative and adaptive, modifying our programs to meet our clients' needs. Emotional intelligence in the context of leadership development represents a transformational process that is deeply personal and cannot be hurried, but which has long-lasting impact.
