Emotional Capitalists author takes new role at Sheffield Hallam
1st July 2013
Dr Martyn Newman, author of international best-seller Emotional Capitalists The New Leaders, has been appointed by Sheffield Hallam University to role of visiting fellow in Leadership and Emotional Intelligence, marking the appointment with a sold-out keynote seminar at the University on 27 June.
Having worked with global giants such as Ernst & Young and Boeing, Dr Newman will work with academics and students from Sheffield Business School to further boost their EQ leadership skills. The London-based psychologist will develop an in-house coaching and mentoring qualification, based on the principles of emotional capital outlined in his book. The technique focuses on using human skills such as optimism, self-confidence and empathy to build better business relationships. This announcement marks the launch of a new strategic partnership between Sheffield Business School and RocheMartin to give the University's students and business partners access to the latest thinking in leadership development and emotional intelligence. Dr Newman also holds a PhD from the University of Sydney, an MA from GTU at the University of California, Berkeley, a Masters of Psychology from Monash University, Melbourne, and a Doctor of Psychology from La Trobe University, Melbourne. Dr Newman said: "I'm delighted to mark my association with Sheffield Hallam by developing the qualification. During these difficult economic times, companies must put their very best assets - their employees - at the heart of their thinking and learning processes." Conor Moss, employer engagement fellow at Sheffield Business School at Sheffield Hallam, said: "Martyn has worked with some of the biggest companies in the world using a technique that has transformed their business models. "His association with the University will be of huge benefit to not only our staff and students, but the companies that we in turn do business with."
