The School of Life was founded in 2008 by writer and philosopher, Alain de Botton, to create content, tools and services to help people lead more emotionally fulfilled lives.

The School of Life at Work is the dedicated business division of The School of Life, with a mission to equip businesses and their employees with the emotional skills they need to thrive at work – and grow as people.

It applies therapeutic ideas to the workplace, helping individuals and teams overcome the challenges they face, achieve their professional goals and solve the dilemmas of being human.
With an approach rooted in psychotherapy, and drawing wisdom from the worlds of philosophy, art and culture, its interventions speak directly to the needs of each individual – while driving marked and measurable change for the organisation as a whole.

The School of Life at Work offers a comprehensive range of experiences, tools and interventions for over 60 Emotional Skills, designed to suit the individual needs of different companies and teams. All its services are facilitated by in-house experts, and each is available in-person and virtually.

With a dedicated Learning Journey for Early Career Talent which focuses on the key emotional
skills behind successful transition to the workplace, and the art of flourishing in one’s early career, The School of Life supports the entire employee journey and helps create better workplaces for all.
