Creating an emotion revolution: From schools to workplaces to society

Dean's Lecture Series 2018

Emotions Matter. They inform our thinking, decisions, creativity, relationships, mental and physical health, and everyday performance. The skills of emotional intelligence, including the ability to recognize and regulate emotions, are especially important for our success and wellbeing. In this presentation, I will discuss our Center’s large-scale studies on the role of emotions and emotional intelligence in key personal and organizational outcomes. I’ll also discuss RULER, our Center’s evidence-based approach to teaching social and emotional learning, which has been adopted by over 2000 schools across the U.S. and around the world, including Australia. Practical tools and strategies to develop emotional intelligence also will be shared.
