Billions are spent on corporate wellness programs and there are over 160,000 health and medical apps out there, of which 2/3rds are for nutrition, wellness, stress, and fitness. Yet, studies show that up to 50% of the workforce suffer from burnout, as high as 70% are disengaged in their work, 8/10 Americans are inflicted by stress, and depression levels are increasing more than ever before.  There is clearly a gap.

Welcome, to EMQ.  The Energy Management Quotient rapidly and accurately provides the individual, or team, structured and tactical steps to become more aware of their de-energizing behaviors.  It works to shift these to positive behaviors, thereby providing ways to improve your overall emotional stability, engagement, productivity and fulfillment, creating healthier individuals and teams.  MyEMQ takes in your current behaviors and mindsets to understand how you can better manage your process of thought to enable you respond to life's challenges in the best way.  After all, it has been found that we control over 40% of our own happiness and it is MyEMQ’s mission to give you that control.

“ The EMQ is unlike any other leadership assessment I've seen!” 


"The EMQ is unlike any other leadership assessment I've seen!  It is simple (whether doing it with the guide or with the support of a coach), yet powerful in the sense that it clearly shows you how to connect the dots for areas of enhancement while highlighting the strengths of all types of leaders. It doesn't say you are this type or that color leader; the EMQ celebrates who you are, where you are, as a leader mentally, personally, and professionally allowing you to be your best self! Most leadership assessments ignore the importance of mental well being and personal drivers, even when data shows that mental health and wellness should not be overlooked in leadership roles.  The EMQ has 12 factors primarily rooted around a leader's passion, purpose, and mental wellness to assure they can be their best selves first, and great leaders second. The creators of this tool took the time to think about every detail needed to assure that any leader who took this assessment would continue to or learn how to be confident in themselves, how they lead, and influence others!"

"After taking the EMQ behavioral assessment, I’ve gained a greater understanding of my personal habits and practices and how they directly affect my relationships (both personally and professionally ).

At the core the EMQ exercise allowed me to properly assess my mindfulness, self awareness and proactive behavioral practices that will only make me a more well rounded human being and allow me to be better to and for others. Setting clear expectations and boundaries, determining and living by my value system truly is about honoring my truth.

Overall, EMQ is a vital product for today’s business professional that I would most definitely recommend . This game changing assessment tool should be a mandatory part of evaluations for both large and small scale companies, start up entrepreneurs as well as individuals looking to level up for greater daily output in all aspects of their lives.

I’m grateful for the insight, excited about putting some of the positive value assessments into action and will be sharing my success about EMQ with my network."


How we can help

Elevate Wellbeing and Mindfulness Programs


With an increased focus on wellbeing, beyond gyms and healthy snacks, there is a need to focus on the mental wellbeing of your employees.

With MyEMQ, you can help employees develop strategies to decrease stress, increase focus, increase mindfulness, and limit distorted thoughts that can lead to negative feelings that can potentially manifest into destructive habits.  Instead, it equips them with the ability to learn how to lean into their emotions, process them, and respond in a purposeful way.

Create Resilient, High Performance Cultures


High performing cultures are those that are productive, fulfilled, and engaged.  Resilient workforces are able to adapt, lean into change, and face challenges head on.

With MyEMQ we focus on developing the cognitive processes and behaviors needed for increased resilience, creativity, and purpose.

Enhance Individual Personal Development


Personal development is a critical component of workforce engagement, attraction, and retention.  

With MyEMQ employees, management, and leadership can develop the skills needed to be their best professionally as well as personally in their everyday lives - as we all know, our work lives and our personal lives are emotionally bonded together.

"EMQ is a powerful tool for rapidly honing in on the few critical characteristics or behaviors blocking growth and development, professionally and personally.  I found the analysis uncannily accurate and revealing, and benefited immediately from the very practical coaching to quickly make impactful positive changes.  

At the end of my 30-day program I’m on the brink of an exciting professional change, I’m far better attuned to my own core values and needs, and I’m consistently monitoring and adjusting the areas which reduce my energy and impact. 

I am truly amazed at the positive rate of change in my life as a result of going through this program!"

- Strategic Marketing Manager, @ Applied Materials (EMQ 30 Day Participant)



"The level of detail was incredible and it was very insightful.  For some my first reaction was that's not true! Then when I thought about it, I realized it in fact was.  It made me see myself truthfully, made me acutely aware, and now I am able to work on myself from a position of clarity. "

- Project Manager @ Capital One (EMQ Breakthrough Participant)

"It started with awareness and seeing my behaviors so clearly.  I had a massive ‘ah-ha’ moment in where I had been justifying certain behaviors that have been limiting me.  In one session I figured out a huge barrier, and am equipped with the tools I need to change."

"The debrief made it make more sense.  Within 30 days I was feeling happier, within a just a couple of months I felt like I was responding better.  The culture and same old stuff was happening at work – but I had changed, it was not affecting me in the same negative way. "

- Senior Director, Technology (EMQ Breakthrough Participant)


"Not only is the program an excellent kick starter for personal development; it could be hugely beneficial for aligning new teams on a core mission and values - or strengthening an underperforming team by analyzing and optimizing individuals' complementary operating behaviors."

Why it Matters

Our brains' tendency to look for negatives was once vital for human sustainment, and still plays an important role.  However, with the over stimulated environment we now live in, we need to manage the constant activation of our fight or flight mode, which stresses our nervous system, causing impact to our attention, focus, memory, and wellbeing.
