Heidi Brooks teaches and advises on the subject of everyday leadership: the everyday micro-moments of impact that shape our lived experiences. Creating more courageous communities — especially within organizations — is a particular passion of hers. Dr. Brooks specializes in large-scale culture change projects focused on individual and collective leadership effectiveness in organizations. Interpersonal Dynamics, the MBA elective she has taught for 15 years, is one of the courses most in demand at Yale School of Management. Recently, Dr. Brooks pioneered the Everyday Leadership course at SOM, where she first taught the Principles of Everyday Leadership. She has also taught Emotional Intelligence, Power & Politics, Managing Teams and Groups, and Coaching Skills for Managers. Dr. Brooks received her doctorate in psychology from the University of California at Berkeley and a bachelor’s degree from Brown University. A life-long experiential learner, you can find her as a student in classrooms as far-ranging as improvisational theater and immersion language lessons.

Laurie Santos is Professor of Psychology and Head of Silliman College, Yale University. Expert on human cognition and the cognitive biases that impede better choices. New course, Psychology and the Good Life, teaches students how the science of psychology can provide important hints about how to make wiser choices and live a life that’s happier and more fulfilling. Course recently became Yale’s most popular course in over 300 years, with almost one in four students at Yale enrolled. Course has been featured in numerous news outlets, including the New York Times, NBC Nightly News, the Today Show, GQ Magazine, Slate and O! Magazine. Winner of numerous awards both for science and teaching; recently voted as one of Popular Science Magazine’s “Brilliant 10” young minds; named in Time Magazine as a “Leading Campus Celebrity”.
