Daniel Goleman, Everwise, and Key Step Media Launch "Crisp and Effective" Emotional Intelligence Training

Learning paths transform Dr. Goleman’s research and writing into engaging, scalable learning experiences

[Chicago, IL, June 20, 2018] Following their May partnership announcement, Daniel Goleman, Key Step Media, and Everwise today announced the availability of the first learning paths based on Dr. Goleman’s acclaimed work on Emotional Intelligence (EI). Pilot participants have called the experience "immersive and engaging" and "crisp and effective". The announcement coincides with Dr. Goleman’s address at the SHRM annual conference, the largest human resources conference in the world.

Each interactive, dynamic path is a two-week experience powered by the Everwise learning platform. The full course, based on Dr. Goleman’s EI competency model, is a series of twelve paths. The first path, Emotional Balance, is also available standalone with start dates in July through September. Registration is available at http://bit.ly/eilearn

Participants in a prerelease pilot rated it very highly, saying, "The content and structure of the pilot exceeded my expectations in terms of guiding me through self-exploration and activities that really helped with self-awareness and emotional regulation."

Dr. Goleman, a New York Times bestselling author, Harvard Business Review contributor, and psychologist, is partnering exclusively with Key Step Media and Everwise to bring his research and writings to participants in a more engaging way than is possible with static content. Everwise, as a leading provider of software that drives high-impact learning in the enterprise, was chosen because of its ability to develop and widely deliver collaborative learning experiences, while preserving human connections that contribute to effective learning. Key Step Media, a leading publisher of Leadership Development content, has worked to help create the dynamic experiences from Dr. Goleman’s work.

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 learning platform. Adding learning experiences, based on Dr. Goleman’s extensive Emotional Intelligence research, is a fantastic opportunity. It has been a pleasure to work with Daniel Goleman and the Key Step Media team, to bring more great products to Everwise customers."

The partnership pairs the scalable Everwise SaaS 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 fun and engaging way. Register for a path at http://bit.ly/eilearn
