Emotional Agility – This Week’s Six Pixels of Separation Podcast

Posted by

Episode #643 of Six Pixels of Separation is now live and ready for you to listen to.

I’m just a superfan nerd for all things Susan David. I thought that her 2016 book, Emotional Agility, was one of the smartest (and most relevant) books for individuals and leaders. I had the pleasure of connecting with Susan and becoming friends in the past short while. If you didn’t know, Susan is an award-winning Psychologist on the faculty of Harvard Medical School, co-founder and co-director of the Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital, and CEO of Evidence Based Psychology. Emotional Agility is a concept that Harvard Business Review heralded as a Management Idea of the Year (no joke), and has been featured… well… everywhere! An in-demand speaker, advisor, and coach, Susan has worked with the senior leadership of hundreds of major organizations, including the United Nations, Ernst & Young, and the World Economic Forum. Susan is also on the core faculty of the global program Homeward Bound, which culminates in an all-women expedition to Antarctica and is being filmed as a documentary. The program aims at increasing the influence and impact of women in the sciences. You should also check out her TED Talk, The gift and power of emotional courage (close to four million views!). I’m thrilled that she agreed to do this. Enjoy the conversation…
