Dr. Susan David is one of the world’s leading management thinkers and an award-winning psychologist at Harvard Medical School. Co-founder and co-director of the Institute of Coaching at Harvard/McLean Hospital, Dr. David’s research focuses on employee engagement, emotional skills, leadership, and coaching effectiveness.

She is bestselling author of "Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change," and "Thrive in Work and Life," an Amazon Best Book of the Year, among other successful books.

An authority on leadership, organizational culture, and success, Dr. David has been named to the 2017 Thinkers50 Radar list—the thinkers most likely to shape the future of how organizations are managed and led. She has been awarded sixteen prizes and scholarships, including two for research on emotions in coaching and wellbeing.

Dr. David is also a highly-sought speaker and scientific adviser; as CEO of Evidence Based Psychology, a boutique consulting firm specializing in high performance leadership, change management, and organizational culture, David has consulted for such companies as Google, Microsoft, JetBlue, EY, NASDAQ, the UN, World Economic Forum, World Bank, JP Morgan, and Kimpton Hotel Group.

BUILDING EMOTIONAL AGILITY
Rapid technological change, globalization, and the COVID-19 pandemic have fundamentally disrupted the way we live and work. We increasingly find ourselves caught between organizational demands and environmental realities. Successful organizations require flexibility, teaming, customer-centricity, innovation, and inclusion. Yet at the same time, increasing complexity conspires against positive change, leading to rigidity, lower well-being, and transactional relationships. The demand for people and organizations to be agile has never been greater.

Developed by Susan David, Ph.D., emotional agility is the practical, science-based psychological framework that enables both individuals and organizations to thrive. At its core, emotional agility is about the capacity to see ourselves and others in a way that is wholehearted and healthy. It’s a set of essential psychological skills for our fast-changing, complex world: skills that allow us to remain engaged, open, and values-connected, and to reincorporate our most challenging feelings as sources of energy, creativity, and insight.

Emotional agility capacities are at the heart of mental health, wellbeing, culture, collaboration, innovation—everything that matters to healthy people, organizations, and communities. Now more than ever, they are crucial. The World Economic Forum calls them “key skills for the future” and Thinkers50 recognized the framework with its coveted Breakthrough Idea Award, noting, “Emotional agility is the new currency for leading effectively.”

Emotional agility is a tool for everyone. Because our thoughts, emotions, and behavior drive everything; every aspect of how we love, live, parent, and lead.
