Is this asynchronous or synchronous?

All of the Daniel Goleman EI courses are online, asynchronous, and released in weekly modules that include video, audio, reading, and reflection. You can pace yourself through each week in a way that best aligns with your schedule, while engaging with your cohort community and facilitator.

This course fosters a rich community of EI change-makers and is designed to optimize your Learner experience through a combination of engaging course content, skilled facilitators, and practical tools to help you bridge the gap between theory and action.

It is highly recommended to be at these sessions live, if you can make it; we provide recordings as well.

How is Daniel Goleman involved in this course?

This is the only emotional intelligence (EI) training program affiliated with Daniel Goleman, created in direct collaboration with him, and founded on the concepts and practices of his model that are critical to developing EI. While the course is not taught or facilitated by Dr. Goleman, the asynchronous weekly module content (video, audio, reading etc.) features Dr. Goleman and his collaborative work. The course facilitators you will engage with have also been certified and trained in-depth on his emotional intelligence model.

What if I have a different question not featured here?

We are here for you. Please email or call us at (413) 587-0818 with any questions, suggestions or feedback. We look forward to hearing from you.

What’s the time commitment per day?

To optimize for meaningful learning, reflection, and application, every week’s competency is divided into five or six days—with specific steps outlined for each day. You can expect to spend 15-30 minutes per day to go through the daily content and get familiar with the exercise/activity outlined, complete the exercise/activity and share your reflection.

Often the activity will include noticing different aspects of your experience over the course of a day. We recommend planning to review the content in the morning, complete the activity during the day and leave your reflection at the end of the day. Be sure to plan time to read and respond to the reflections from your fellow cohort members as well!
