Why We Do What We Do

Our Secret Sauce

Mindset, communication intelligence, and emotional intelligence

Having the right mindset and the necessary emotional and conversational intelligence are the three essential ingredients to building and strengthening relationships. They are the pathway to being successful at adapting your communication and leadership styles to those from diverse levels of experience, knowledge, confidence, backgrounds, and cultures. Those core ingredients also build core competencies to communicate clearly, listen actively, cooperate with others, resist inappropriate social pressure, negotiate conflict constructively, and become more emotionally agile.



Mindset is the set of attitudes and beliefs we hold. Our mindsets either keep us stuck – if we have limiting beliefs, a lack of confidence, or fears that hold us back – or empower us to change and become better versions of ourselves. Our goal is to help people shift from resignation, fearful and fixed mindsets to growth, reductive, and emotionally agile mindsets.


Communication Intelligence (CQ) is the ability to facilitate powerful and transformational conversations while being mindful of your words, tone, body language, and listening skills. Having communication intelligence facilitates enhanced sensitivity, mutual support, leadership, and employee engagement. Core competencies include giving and receiving feedback, preventing and managing conflict, negotiation, peer-to-peer collaboration, virtual communication, and departmental cooperation.


Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is knowing, understanding, and responding to emotions, overcoming stress in the moment, and being aware of how our habits, behaviors, and assumptions affect others. Improving skills in emotional intelligence allows you to influence people’s thoughts, feelings, and actions, and lead more effectively. Core competencies in this area include self-awareness, self-control, motivation, empathy, and social skills.

Our Core Values

At MindsetGo, we don’t see core values as eye candy–a sign on the wall or words you slap on your website.

We live, model, and recognize our core values and have incorporated them into foundational habits so they are actionable and identifiable.

Our core values/foundational habits are:

  • Default to curiosity
  • Respond; don’t react
  • Lead with empathy
  • Ask questions when tempted to make statements
  • Motivate commitment

In addition to practicing these values internally at MindsetGo, we coach our clients on how to do the same.
