Multi-day course based on my experience at Google, working with Daniel Goleman, Chase-Meng Tan, and others
Topic: Emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and others have emerged as important topics in the workplace. Research indicates that EQ and IQ are largely uncorrelated, with the result that in a high-IQ environment, those with better developed EQ are likely to be more successful. Questions addressed include what is, why it matters, and how it can be developed.
Readings include Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Arriving at Your Own Door; Chade-Meng Tan, Search Inside Yourself; course includes a brief introduction to mindfulness meditation.
