Mentoring Young Leaders


Testimonials Love.
At ThreeEQ, we believe that almost all high-achieving young adults have yet to unleash their full potential. We masterfully
inspire and guide the students in our client families to prepare well and achieve great results in college life, internships, post-college career or family business, and personal fulfillment, depending on their life stages.

Along the way, we help our students strengthen their pragmatic emotional, social, and leadership intelligence (“3EQ”), hone their visionary stories, state/emotion management, strategies and execution, and soft skills (“4S”), and gain a sustainable competitive advantage with long-term benefits in their ever-changing world.

Given our guidance, both students and parents gain peace of mind and family relationships are enhanced.

The great outcomes that our young adult students have achieved include:

Our testimonials and success stories and industry accolades speak volumes. We are proud to maintain a 100% peace of mind guarantee for coachable, committed, and ethical high-achievers and their parents.

So, the question you need to ask yourself is: “Do I want to achieve great results, unleash my full potential, be happy, and secure my bright future—starting now?”


Right Now, You Are Probably a Bit Stuck: 

You want to get (or create) a great internship or job, pave a successful career path, make lots of money, and grow with happiness—but are unsure on how to best do so.

The dynamic world of work and talent is one in which change is not only constant but also accelerating. The future of work has arrived. Around the world, the growing impact of technologies (especially AI and machine learning), digital transformation, intergenerational and demographic shifts, as well as the changing nature of careers and the “gig economy,” are raising people’s and companies’ productivity and connectivity.

At the same time, these factors and others are increasing anxiety, stress, and already intense competition between driven millennials and Gen Zers at work or still in school.

The REALITY is that the best companies continue to hire and develop only the very best for coveted jobs (despite a low unemployment rate). For example, the hiring rate at Google is 0.25% (1 hire out of 400 applications). “It’s 25X more competitive than the undergraduate admit rate of Harvard (which is now under 5%),” said Laszlo Bock, Google’s former SVP of People Operations.

Even ambitious candidates from top schools and wealthy families incur (subtle but) major opportunity losses because they didn’t get the best third-party guidance early enough partly because of denial, myopia, pride, hearsay, and/or fallacies.

So, how about those still in elite colleges and universities? They must be fine, right?

The reality? We hate to say it, but many students who attend highly competitive, top colleges and universities are actually stressed out, anxiety-filled, a bit lost, or even depressed. Numerous families keep these facts and consequences quiet…

The good news? Whichever situation you find yourself in, we can show you a plan that will help you make notable success a reality… and we’ll do it in a complimentary strategic coaching session.

Consider this: The above are the kinds of results we help our students/mentees authentically achieve. If we can do it for them, why can’t we do it for you?
