About Me

My vision is to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Key work experiences are being a Research Associate in the Executive Program for Management Development at Harvard Business School and in 1999 teaming up with Yale President Peter Salovey and his colleagues to become a pioneer in the field of Emotional Intelligence. I have been a Director of Leadership Development for Exxon and Hartford Insurance, and CEO of my own consulting business since 1994. In 2003 I created the Emotion Roadmap to help make the science of emotional intelligence useful to everybody. Along with my paid keynote speaking experiences and my leadership consulting I voluntarily began doing a public radio talk show in 1999 to make what I have learned available to any listener. The show is called "The Emotion Roadmap: Take the Wheel and Control How You Feel."
