Bestselling author and renowned psychologist Daniel Goleman, PhD, will
present "Emotional Intelligence: Why it Can Matter More Than IQ"
at the Center for the Arts on Friday, May 15 at 7 pm.
Goleman's talk makes the case for "emotional intelligence"
being the strongest indicator of human success. He defines emotional intelligence
in terms of self-awareness, altruism, personal motivation, empathy, and
the ability to love and be loved by friends, partners, and family members.
Because emotional intelligence isn't static, Goleman outlines how
adults as well as parents of young children can develop this trait.
Tickets to the talk are $20, available at the Center's box office and
Goleman comes to Jackson as part of St. John's Medical Center's
Words on Wellness speaker series, which presents national speakers and
conducts Lunchtime Learning presentations on health and wellness topics.
