About this event

Zoom | September 8 | 12 - 1:30 pm EDT

How are you? It’s a question you ask or are asked dozens of times each day and yet how often do we stop, pause, reflect and answer the question in an honest and open manner? Doing so is important as the question and answer help us connect with others and to get things done.

Once you have a good answer to “how are you?”, it is important to match those feelings to connect and achieve goals, to understand the meaning of these feelings and then to actively manage these feelings. These four skills are described by the theory of emotional intelligence first proposed by Jack Mayer and Peter Salovey in 1990. This interactive session will begin with a hands-on set of questions to illustrate these four hard skills and we will then apply these skills to your most challenging situations. The model itself is simple and straightforward – the challenge is to apply these skills at a high level of skill, in real time, on a consistent basis and under stressful conditions.

David R. Caruso, Ph.D. is a psychologist who develops and conducts emotional intelligence training around the world. David is the co-founder of Emotional Intelligence (EI) Skills Group, Senior Advisor to the Dean in Yale College, and a research affiliate at the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence. He is the co-author of the Mayer, Salovey, Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT) and has provided assessment feedback to thousands of executives. He and colleague Peter Salovey wrote the “how-to” book, The Emotionally Intelligent Manager. He is a co-author (with Lisa Rees) of The Leader’s Guide to Solving Challenges with Emotional Intelligence, co-author of The Anchors of Emotional Intelligence school-based EI training program (Brackett, Caruso & Stern), and co-author of The Educator’s Practical Guide to Emotional Intelligence (Caruso, Rees and Adams). David has published numerous articles – peer reviewed journal articles, reviews and chapters - on the topics of emotional intelligence and leadership. He has spoken to executives and has trained thousands of professionals from Brazil to Ireland to China to Russia.

David was a National Institute of Child Health and Human Development pre-doctoral fellow and received a Ph.D. in Psychology from Case Western Reserve University. He was then awarded a National Institute of Mental Health fellowship and spent two years as a post-doctoral fellow in Developmental Psychology at Yale University. David has also held positions in market research, strategic planning, and product management.

He and his wife Nancie Spector, a child clinical psychologist, are the parents of three children and four grandchildren. Raised in a Catholic family, he converted to Judaism after his marriage and raised their children in the Jewish faith. Back in the day, David coached 14 youth baseball teams which utilized his skills in working with children and adults, and he stepped down once actual baseball skills were required.
