We understand that emotional intelligence (EQ) is a vital job-skill set for a constantly changing world. Skills like empathy, adaptability, resilience, emotional agility, communication, curiosity, storytelling and open-mindedness will replace classical workplace requirements and qualifications. These skills help us adapt to disruption and thrive under pressure. It is therefore one of the greatest gifts we can ourselves and our children.

Paul founded the #raisingkids brand with the publication of his first book #raisingkids To Thrive in a Constantly Changing World. Since then, it has grown into a brand of products and services aimed at helping adults and children improve their emotional intelligence, as a way of better preparing them for careers in a constantly changing world.
