#49: Emotional Intelligence. With Michele Nevarez
Show Notes

This episode of the podcast is about Emotional Intelligence, a term popularized in the 90’s by the psychologist Daniel Goleman and, ever since, the corporate world has embraced it. Or so they say.

In fact, that type of intelligence that makes individuals and groups of people aware of their emotions, and the emotions of others, is as rare as desirable.

In a time when efficiency, productivity and market domination have become the standard definition of success, we need to go beyond Emotional Intelligence, as per the current state of adoption.

My guest today is Michele Nevarez, a corporate advisor to Fortune 500 companies and the author of the book Beyond Emotional Intelligence, A Guide to Accessing Your Full Potential.

Michele’s body of work is remarkable, and extremely comprehensive. From psychology to neuroscience, from biology to spirituality, it takes a 360 degrees approach to understand how emotions play into our lives. And once we understand them, we can finally set strategies to leverage emotions to become better human beings, and ultimately, better societies.
