"Our members learned new ways of approaching stress management, problem-solving, and decision-making while navigating a disruptive cyber event. I certainly recommend Thrive with EQ’s services for any organization that is looking to exercise collaboration and be prepared against the inevitable cyber disruptions of the digital age."

Is your organization at risk?


Build resilience within your organization by empowering leaders to strengthen stress tolerance, sharpen problem-solving skills, and make informed decisions under pressure. Investing in preparedness, resilience, and readiness will safeguard against disruptions, costly downtime, reputational damage, and lost productivity in the face of cyber threats. Proactive planning, adaptable structures, and effective communication will enable your organization to recover from setbacks, maintain a competitive edge, and ensure stability and growth amidst today's complex business landscape.

Test your Emotional Firewalls!

Low Preparedness

Lack of emergency planning and inadequate workforce training can expose businesses to unforeseen digital hazards. Without an effective risk management strategy, the wave of digital disruptions can exacerbate business interruptions. Human factor integration into business continuity planning and organizational resilience are critical elements of business continuity planning.

Low Resilience

When a company's resilience culture is low, it is prone to digital disruption, social engineering attacks, and poor security cultures. Protecting sensitive data, reducing attack impact, and maintaining customer and stakeholder trust all require enhanced resilience. In an ever-changing cyber environment, organizations need to prioritize human resilience.

Low Readiness

Rapid and effective response strategies can be hindered by obstacles such as poor communication, limited information access, and inadequately trained personnel. Resource constraints can further exacerbate crises. Managing such digital challenges effectively requires organizations to prioritize a human-centric risk management approach and ensure business continuity.

 Leading Effectively Under Pressure with Emotional Intelligence


"I reached out to Nadja.  As Nadja, and I really share a passion when it comes to the people side of security, and I asked Nadja if she could review the book before publication, and I'm so pleased that she did. She gave me really deep insights into the emotional intelligence and emotional response to major incidents, which really helped bring the book to life."

Kristel Ba

Former Program Director for Leadership Development Program at GMF


"Nadja has designed and facilitated two cyber crisis simulation exercises for our Inclusive Leadership Hub, the German Marshall Fund of the United States Office in Paris. The simulation exercise consisted of a presentation highlighting the foundations of emotional intelligence, personality type preferences, value-based beliefs, and unconscious bias. The presentation was followed by a cyber crisis simulation exercise based on role play. Nadja designed the personality types for a generationally diverse team across cultures, sectors, and backgrounds. What made the crisis simulation innovative and unique is the use of emotional intelligence curveballs so the participants could practice their human resilience. The creative and innovative workshops addressed some of the critical challenges of the workforce in an era of digital transformation and disruptive security challenges. Participants found the workshop a great success! I highly recommend Nadja to any organization who is looking for innovative, creative, and practical real-life crisis scenarios to transform the workforce and build human resilience for the 21st Century!"
