This week Sachit (@sachitgupta) chats with Charles Jones (@adaptaboy). Charles began the research project that led to the Effectiveness Theory of Emotion in 1982 while pursuing an interdisciplinary degree at the intersection of Computer Science, Cultural Anthropology and Evolutionary Psychology at the University of Michigan. After graduating with a B.S., Charles continued the research project in his spare time for the next 35 years, studying with Fernando Flores (Ontological Coaching), Richard Strozzi Heckler (Somatic Leadership) and Marshall Rosenberg (Nonviolent Communication). In parallel, Charles had successful careers as a software engineer and organizational and leadership development consultant.
