 how to: with Professor Susan David

Harvard professor Susan David presents a revolutionary method for overcoming negative emotion, embracing change, and thriving in work and life.

Every day we speak around 16,000 words – but the voice in our head creates thousands more. Thoughts such as ‘I’m not spending enough time with my children’ or ‘I don’t have the confidence to do this presentation’ are taken as unshakable facts when it reality they are the judgemental opinions of our inner voice.

Professor Susan David’s deeply researched techniques enable you to unhook yourself from these pessimistic emotional patterns. Learning ‘emotional agility’ will give you the ability to hold negative thoughts at arms-length and evaluate them. You will become aware of your emotional nature, learn to face your feelings, and flourish.
