Episode 68||68||68: Developing a World Class Mindset with Emotional Agility | Dr. Susan David

What does it take internally to thrive?

Psychologists understand that the way in which we navigate our inner world drives every aspect of how we love, live, and lead… but it can be difficult for us to reflect inward and navigate our everyday thoughts, emotions, and self-talk because no one ever taught us how.

Our guest, Dr. Susan David, is a clinical psychologist and author of the best-selling book, Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life. We’re sharing this conversation as a crash course to help you start developing emotional agility and thriving internally.

We recorded this conversation as part of our monthly ONE Thing webinar series. Every month, we feature an incredible author so that you can learn directly from them and ask questions. If you want to sign up for our next FREE monthly webinar, head over to the1thing.com/webinars.
