February 12, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm ESTFree
Discover everything you were never taught at school about how to lead a better life…
We spend years in school learning facts and figures but the one thing we’re never taught is how to live a fulfilled life. That’s why we need The School of Life – a real organisation founded ten years ago by writer and philosopher Alain de Botton. The School of Life has one simple aim: to equip people with the tools to survive and thrive in the modern world. And the most important of these tools is emotional intelligence.
This book brings together ten years of essential and transformative research on emotional intelligence, with practical topics including:
how to understand yourself
how to master the dilemmas of relationships
how to become more effective at work
how to endure failure
how to grow more serene and resilient
The School of Life is nothing short of a crash course in emotional maturity. With all the trademark wit and elegance of Alain de Botton’s other writings, and rooted in practical, achievable advice, it show us a path to the better lives we all want and deserve.
