Talk: Emotional Intelligence as a Superpower

Marc Brackett stops by to kick off Google Empathy Lab’s Series on Designing for Feelings. Emotions inform our thinking and decisions, the quality of our relationships, our physical and mental health, and everyday performance. What we “do” with our emotions is especially important. In Marc’s talk you’ll learn Yale's “hard science” approach to what has often been referred to as “soft skills" from the lab that founded this groundbreaking field, the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. Specifically, you’ll leave the talk with a deeper understanding of: The Science of Emotions and the Five Key Skills of Emotional Intelligence, including practical strategies and tools.
