June 22, 2022: TEDxMidAtlanticSalon – What does it mean to have emotional courage?

What is emotional courage, and why should we cultivate it? Psychologist Susan David shares how the way we deal with our emotions shapes everything that matters: our actions, careers, relationships, health and happiness. In this deeply moving, humorous and potentially life-changing talk, she challenges a culture that prizes positivity over emotional truth and discusses the powerful strategies of emotional agility. A talk to share. We’ll watch Susan’s talk, and then break out into smaller groups to discuss your questions and reflections.
