Emotional Intelligence and Character Strength for the Healthcare Leader with Dr. Bahar Sedarati

July 10, 2024

Bahar Sedarati, MD, CPE, FCUCM, believes that emotional intelligence is a significant human skill. From her youth growing up in Iran, to her training as an internist, to her passion for teaching and mentoring, and now as a career coach, Sedarati’s message is focusing on what we have versus what we want.

In this interview with Mike Sacopulos, they cover topics on whether courage or empathy can be taught, emotional intelligence and the practice of medicine, her experience with a Managing Happiness Certificate from Harvard University and in earning the Certified Physician Executive (CPE) credential from the American Association for Physician Leadership.

Sedarati mentions the book Build the Life You Want: The Art and Science of Getting Happier by Arthur C. Brooks.
