The pioneer of the paradigm-shifting concept of Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman, reveals what science can tell us about how to achieve a state of high performance and life satisfaction.

There are moments when we achieve peak performance: an athlete plays a perfect game; a business has a quarter with once-in-a-lifetime profits. But these moments are often fleeting. Fulfilment doesn’t come from isolated peak experiences, or elusive ‘flow’ states, but rather from many consistent good days. So how do we sustain performance, while avoiding burnout and maintaining balance?

Daniel Goleman pioneered the concept of Emotional Intelligence and brought it out of the psychology lab and into the mainstream; now he returns 25 years later to share what science has discovered since then and present a new Emotional Intelligence based model for having a great day, any day.

Enhanced emotional intelligence pays off in improved engagement, productivity and more satisfying days. In this livestream talk, you’ll discover the keys to competence in emotional intelligence, and practical methods for applying this skill set more readily.

Based on research of how hundreds of people build the inner architecture of having a good day, Daniel will sketch what an optimal state feels like, and show how emotional intelligence holds the key to our best performance.

Whether you’re a business leader, creative artist, or simply in search of a more balanced and fulfilling life, this is a must-see online event.
