Imagine feeling more connected to yourself, better understanding what motivates you, what makes you tick… even what triggers you. What if there were a way to help us tap into our boundaries, our choices and our emotional intelligence in a way that improves our relationships — especially the relationship with ourselves?

Oh but there is. According to life coach and speaker, Dr. Marilyn Simmons Bowe, people with strong social-emotional skills are better able to cope with everyday challenges and benefit academically, professionally, and socially. In this episode, Dr. Simmons helps us to understand Social Emotional Learning and use it to better our lives — and ourselves.


Dr. Marilyn Simmons Bowe not only teaches in Atlanta, but also works cross-industry as a coach for Social-Emotional learning and in 2010/2011 developed the Camp Achievement Theory assessment that calculates and quantifies social-emotional problem areas via an assessment and algorithm. Within Dr. Simmons Bowe’s coaching practice she works daily with business groups, educators, students, and even couples on:

  • Boundary Dynamics
  • Choice Theory
  • Achievement Emotions
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Social-Emotional Learning Theory
