Twenty years ago Daniel Goleman, a science reporter on the New York Times, published a book called Emotional Intelligence which explored how emotions are regulated in the brain. Goleman hoped that his findings might filter into the culture and effect the ways in which we think about  success. Today, the Harvard Business Review has hailed emotional intelligence as ‘paradigm-shattering’ concept, and in schools across America EI has become part of the curriculum, with children being taught to respond empathetically to others, to identify what makes them stressed, and to explore the ways in which communication can resolve, rather than aggravate, conflict.

We are delighted to welcome Daniel Goleman to the How to Academy, to discuss with us the idea that has come to define our age.
