Drawing on her extensive research, consultancy, and her own experiences, author of the highly acclaimed best-selling book Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life, Dr. Susan David will show how anyone can thrive in an uncertain world by becoming emotionally agile. Emotional agility is a roadmap for real behavioral change. By facing emotions and thoughts courageously and compassionately, with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness and an open mind, anyone can become unstuck, embrace change and move forward. Dr. David will be speaking about emotional agility and emotional intelligence as significant drivers of learning, creativity and well-being in children, and how these skills are best developed in school and at home.
