Topics for Dr Susan David
- Building emotional agility
Rapid technological change, globalization, and hybrid work have fundamentally disrupted the way we live. We are increasingly caught between organizational demands and environmental realities. Organizations need flexibility, teaming, customer-centricity, innovation, and inclusion. Yet at the same time, accelerated complexity conspires against positive change, leading to rigidity, strained relationships, and lower wellbeing. The demand for people and organizations to be agile has never been greater.
Developed by Susan David, Ph.D., emotional agility is a practical, science-based roadmap. 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 is at the heart of mental health, wellbeing, leadership, culture, collaboration, innovation—everything that matters to healthy people, organizations, and communities. Now more than ever, it is crucial.
