Whilst Emotional Intelligence (EI) is all about the knowing of how to navigate our emotions and the emotions of the people we interact with, Emotional Inclusion (Ei) is all about the doing. The doing of providing tailored mental health care to each company while respecting their organisational DNA. Emotional inclusion is the action of prioritising the psychological needs of our workforce through a tailored medical lens and program, thereby anchoring a mental health pillar within organisational culture to achieve sustainable change and growth long term.

Founder of Emotional Inclusion®, keynote speaker and facilitator and now author, Mollie Rogers Jean De Dieu advocates for emotional wellness in the workforce, focusing on being ‘human’ and ‘emotionally inclusive’ in her new book, Emotional Inclusion®: A Humanizing Revolution at Work with a foreword by Dr Amy C. Edmondson, Novartis Professor of Leadership and Management, Harvard Business School.
The COVID-19 pandemic has marked a historical turning point, moving emotional wellness up the list of global health priorities. As countries struggle to rebuild their damaged economies and companies wrestle to recover their losses, they must accept the reality of the financial toll of mental ill-health and invest wisely now.
Well-being at work is no longer a ‘nice to have’ option but a strategic priority to drive the global economy. On the job, accidents and illnesses annually take some two million lives and cost the global economy an estimated US$1.25 trillion. Yet, this pales in comparison to mental ‘ill-health’, which was estimated to cost the world economy approximately US$2.5 trillion per year in reduced productivity in 2010, a cost projected to rise to US$6 trillion by 2030 Emotional inclusion calls for a tailored, internal, medicalized, sustainable, regenerative and action-driven organizational approach to create workplace ecosystems where successful retention, engagement, proactivity, recruitment and positive bottom lines become the new status quo.
It calls on creating the right workplace infrastructure that allows all employees to be humans at work. When we invest in our people, we invest in our business too.

The Emotional Inclusion Program has shown measurable improvement in leadership effectiveness, emotional inclusion, psychological corporate safety, team performance and employee wellbeing. ...
Mollie has written a book on emotional inclusion, published by Penguin Random House in September 2023. It outlines her vision for humanizing work cultures. Part treatise and part deliberation, Emotional Inclusion® takes readers through the core of Mollie’s advocacy. The book, as she writes, seeks to ‘lift the stigma around talking about emotional wellness at work, and make Emotional inclusion the powerful new status quo’ in workplaces present and future. It discusses emotional inclusion’s organizational definition, shares personal stories on the subject, and offers steps that companies and organizations can and should take to create more emotionally inclusive workplaces that have a transformative impact on employees’ emotional wellness and productivity. In doing so, the book looks to champion courage and create an emotional inclusion movement revolution of change—together.
On the ‘Emotional Inclusion’ podcast (available on iTunes/Spotify), Mollie hosts global leaders with a voice who are advocates for Emotional Inclusion and Mental Health in the workforce. It is aimed to open up the discussion and destigmatize workplace mental health. Her podcast targets to shatter the status quo of today’s business landscape and lead the way to a wholesome new mindset in the workforce. The Emotional Inclusion podcast is currently ranked top 19 globally on Spotify within the category of business management.
A self-proclaimed citizen of the world, Mollie grew up between Africa, France, the United States and has made Asia her home for the past 17 years. She spent 9 years in Hong Kong and 8 years in Singapore where she currently resides with her family today.
The emotional health of our employees is the very foundation of organisational success! Let's action upon it and talk!
Talking about emotional inclusion can feel tricky at best for some and terrifying at worst, for others. And it becomes a vicious cycle — the less people talk about it at work, the more the stigma grows. To break this cycle, Mollie chooses to address the issue proactively, strategically, and thoughtfully with organisations, big and small to make emotional inclusion in the workforce, the new norm.
