Information Advantage: Mastering The Art of Reading & Deeply Understanding People | Irvine Nugent
Play • 54 min

In the crowds I hung out with, talking about emotions often elicited eye rolls and yawns. That changed when I discovered the science of emotions and affect. We now know of a strong link between emotional health, mental health, and physical health.

This episode will unveil how you can understand, connect, and persuade like many of history's most influential leaders.
