Daniel Goleman, Ph.D.

Since 1995, when Daniel Goleman’s groundbreaking book Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ became an international bestseller, Emotional Intelligence has become ubiquitous. The Harvard Business Review called Emotional Intelligence—which discounts IQ as the sole measure of one’s abilities—“a revolutionary, paradigm-shattering idea” and chose his article “What Makes a Leader” as one of ten “must-read” articles from its archives. What’s more, Emotional Intelligence was named one of the 25 “Most Influential Business Management Books” by TIME Magazine. Both businesses and educators have benefited from EI: educators have embraced EI in the form of social and emotional learning (SEL) and leadership and employee development have flourished in the business world because of it.

Michele Nevarez, CEO & Chief Education Officer, Goleman EI

Founder and co-creator of the Goleman EI suite of Coaching and Training programs, Michele’s vision is to democratize EI as a means of igniting personal and global agency. This driving force for Michele is at the core of how our programs translate EI from theory to a powerful and practical vehicle for meaningful transformation and lasting habit change.

Michele brings 25+ years of executive leadership experience working for industry leaders in healthcare, investment management, management consulting, and manufacturing. A founding member of Rangjung Yeshe Institute based in Kathmandu, Nepal, Michele has practiced mindfulness-based training for 27+ years.
