“Emotional Intelligence, a different way of being smart, is a key to high performance at all levels, particularly for outstanding leadership. It’s not your IQ; it’s how you manage yourself and your relationships."

— Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ

Daniel Goleman's training in Emotional Intelligence helped me obtain invaluable tools that I still use in my professional and personal life. Understanding how the brain works and influences our emotions, decisions, and actions has been an important catalyst to be less reactive and much more assertive in my day-to-day life. Highly recommended if you are looking to better manage your emotions and improve your interpersonal relations. 

The Goleman online curriculum is content rich and deeply informative, yet easy to digest. I've found what I needed to not only facilitate my personal growth, but also apply these foundational humanistic insights to developing strategic frameworks that have helped our clients find much greater success in their implementations. I emerged from the program a more empathic and resilient being – and I genuinely wish that more people in mainstream roles could have exposure to this material. It will help tremendously with cultivating maturity in thought, values and leadership.
