Research in emotional intelligence, positive psychology and neuroscience is changing the way we unlock talent, motivate performance and get the best from people.

At Langley Group we teach people the science of these areas of study and how to apply it at all levels of the organization, as well as administering specific psychometric tools designed to marshal strengths and better understand emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence is a critical skill in business, underpinning people’s capacity to work well with others, manage stress and make effective decisions. By understanding the science behind emotional intelligence, we enable people to use and manage emotions more intelligently.

Positive psychology researchers and management experts agree that employee satisfaction, engagement and wellbeing drives business outcomes and performance. We have answers to your engagement questions and specialise in building a positive emotional climate that inspires people. We apply positive psychology to broaden and build people’s toolkit to be more resilient, happy and healthy at work.

Our Accelerated Leadership Program is aimed at helping leaders develop the self-awareness, people savvy and personal agility that are the foundations of great leadership and organisational success.

The field of neuroscience is enhancing our understanding of the brain. We assist people to better understand how the human brain works and how to harness its potential to lead ourselves and others to success in an increasingly complex global economy.
