Sue Langley is a speaker, facilitator and master trainer who inspires people to apply emotional intelligence, positive psychology and neuroscience to become the best they can be. Founder and CEO of Emotional Intelligence Worldwide, she is considered the leading adviser in Australia on the practical workplace application of these fields.
Sue’s gift is synthesising science into simple, practical tools anyone can use. She has taught thousands of business leaders, change agents and human resources professionals around the world how to harness positive emotions, strengths and the brain's potential to improve performance, solve problems creatively and engage others. Because she walks her talk and speaks with real world experience, she connects with diverse groups and opens minds to new ideas.
She has chaired conferences and presented her work internationally and developed large-scale multi-year projects with organisations such as Oracle, Coca-Cola Amatil, Schneider Electric, Perpetual and Camp Quality to cultivate positive culture and emotionally intelligent leadership. Through her partnership with the UK’s Centre for Applied Positive Psychology, Emotional Intelligence Worldwide is bringing innovative strengths-based approaches to organisations across Asia-Pacific. Sue is also leading development of Australia’s first Diploma of Positive Psychology & Wellbeing (launching in 2013), making positive psychology research and applications accessible to busy professionals. A consultant to consultants, Sue is Master Trainer for Realise2, the next generation strengths tool, and two of the most targeted emotional intelligence tools, Genos EI and the Mayer-Salovey-Caruso EI Test.
Before founding EIW and the Langley Group in 2002, Sue worked as a senior leader in the travel, financial services and recruitment industries in Australia, UK and Europe, where she gained a depth in cultural diversity and a passion for travel and developing people.
Currently conducting research linking neuroscience and creativity, Sue will be the first person in Australia to complete a Masters in Neuroscience of Leadership. She holds a BA in Psychology and Management from Monash University and has studied positive psychology at Harvard. Sue is also the published author of “Positive Relationships at Work” in Positive Relationships by Sue Roffey (Springer 2012) and two children’s books based on positive psychology principles. She sits on the Board of Wellbeing Australia and is a member of the Australian Psychological Association.
