Understanding how to bring your best self to work every day will yield deeply impactful and positive outcomes for you, your colleagues, and your organization. Susan David Ph.D.

The “Emotional Agility TED Talk” went viral rapidly, posting over 1 million views in just its first week of release, over 9 million at and more than 60 million unique views on social media, making it one of the ten most popular TED talks that year. She inspires audiences to think, feel and act differently, and her concept of emotional agility helps organizations cultivate outstanding leadership, resilience in the face of complexity, and a human-centered, deeply engaged culture.

In her most recent work and presentations, Susan helps business audiences focus on defining and executing effective strategy, especially in the areas of engagement, high-performance leadership, and culture change in today’s complex society. With powerful and engaging storytelling, humor, and insight, Susan creates a deep and authentic connection with the audience—compelling each person to feel understood, inspired, and able to initiate real, pragmatic change for themselves, their colleagues and their organizations.
