[ San Francisco, CA, May 01, 2018 ] Everwise, a leading provider of software that drives high-impact learning in the enterprise, announced today its partnership with New York Times bestselling author, Harvard Business Review contributor, and psychologist Daniel Goleman. Goleman and Key Step Media, a leading publisher of Leadership Development content, will be providing exclusive Emotional Intelligence learning experiences that will be available to Everwise customers.

Emotional Intelligence is critical in today’s increasingly technical and knowledge-driven economy. As Dr. Goleman says, “In a high-IQ job pool, soft skills like discipline, drive and empathy mark those who emerge as outstanding.”

Commenting on the partnership, Everwise VP and Head of Partnerships Colman Lydon says, "This partnership is a perfect match between technology and content. Our customers and their employees will benefit for years to come from our innovative learning platform, combined with Dr. Goleman’s extensive research, focused on developing Emotional Intelligence. It has been a pleasure to work with Daniel Goleman and the Key Step Media team, whose learning values align closely with ours."

The goal of the partnership is to develop enduring Emotional Intelligence capabilities in employees of Everwise’s customer portfolio of market-leading companies. The partnership pairs the innovative and scalable Everwise L&D platform with coach- and mentor-facilitated courses that use Dr. Goleman’s framework for developing Emotional Intelligence. A unique differentiator of this approach is the combination of evidence-based knowledge in what drives behavioral change with the experiential development of Emotional Intelligence competencies. The result is that more people, at all levels in the workforce, will benefit from Dr. Goleman’s work linking Emotional Intelligence to performance.

Dr. Goleman says, “In Everwise, we have identified a partner who aligns with our values and shares our passion for learning. The Everwise platform enables us to reach more employees in more companies, who can benefit from engaging learning experiences, on the vital leadership skills gained through applied emotional intelligence training.”

By transforming static content into dynamic, interactive learning paths, Everwise is enabling employees to learn about Emotional Intelligence in a more engaging and customizable way.
