Developing Emotional Intelligence The School of Life is a global organisation dedicated to developing emotional intelligence. Over the past few years we have been working closely with some of the world’s leading brands and companies in the area of business services. Alongside professional development and our in-house creative consultancy, we also offer corporate gifting and bespoke product design. We apply psychology, philosophy, and culture to everyday life by exploring life’s big questions. How can we fulfil our potential? Can work be inspiring? Why does community matter? Should relationships last a lifetime? We don’t have all the answers, but we’ll direct you towards a variety of useful ideas that are guaranteed to stimulate, provoke, nourish and console.   To complement our classes, books and videos, we have created a range of tools to help us flourish and better understand ourselves and the world. Our tools help us to make relationships work, build fulfilling careers, understand ourselves, find calm, nurture friendships and get the most out of culture.
