We help you understand and use the power of human emotions at work.
Our proven method addresses the most critical, people-related challenge of today:
How to create energy, engagement and ultimately, how to thrive.
Everyone experiences different emotions at work all the time – excitement, confusion, frustration, curiosity, joy… Emotions at work have a crucial impact on learning, motivation and performance.
The emotions that employees experience and express together create a unique Emotional Climate in a given team or an organization. At its best, a rich emotional climate translates into increased productivity, improved performance and employee well-being.
While most companies focus on hard facts like operating models, KPI’s and goal setting, the fact remains that even with the best systems in place, emotions still run people. While those hard facts are important, they won’t work without emotions.
Our approach will actually make use of those hard facts: We help you understand, deal with, and unleash the power of emotions at work. And we provide you this through our proven and impactful Emergy Emotional Agency™ Program. Emotional Agency is the awareness and understanding of emotions in activities and interactions in the workplace.
We give you and your employees concrete tools and practical step-by-step processes: how to deal with challenging situations, how to awaken authentic joy and use the power of emotions at work. These processes are linked to real work life scenarious and deal with situations that take place in every workplace all the time.

Emotional agency is the awareness, understanding and consideration of emotions in activities, interactions and organizational practices. It is worth noting that emotional agency is a competence that CAN be developed – and as the term agency indicates, the whole core of it lies in active participation – learning and continuous development being the key elements of it.
What is Emotional Agency?
Researchers from the best Universities in Finland together with the Emergy team got together and brought the concepts of agency and emotional intelligence together, creating a completely new and innovative concept: Emotional Agency. Emotional Agency takes into account both the individual level and the interpersonal (group) level. It is a completely new way to think about workplace emotional intelligence.
