Do you feel stuck in life right now?

Do you want to learn ways to get unstuck and thrive in work and life?

Harvard Medical School psychologist, Susan David, discusses emotional agility in her 2017 TEDWomen Talk, The Gift and Power of Emotional Courage. Emotional agility refers to how we use emotion to highlight our best selves in all areas of how were love, live, parent, and lead. In a very inspiring, humorous, and even life-changing talk, she shares how the way we deal with our emotions shapes our actions, careers, relationships, health, and happiness. She challenges our culture that emphasizes positivity over emotional truth and provides powerful strategies of emotional agility.

For more information about emotional agility, read Susan David’s 2016 book, Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life.

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Susan David is offering strategies to help us cope with our heightened emotions in her podcast, “Checking in with Susan David.” She provides a support system, toolkit, and an understanding voice during this vulnerable time.
