Alyssa Blask Campbell is the founder and CEO of Seed & Sew, an organization committed to giving parents, teachers and caregivers the tools to raise emotionally intelligent humans. An emotional development expert with a master’s degree in early education, Alyssa co-created the Collaborative EmotionProcessing (CEP) method with Lauren Stauble and researched it across the United States.

Alyssa is deeply passionate about building emotional intelligence in children and creating a shame-free, judgment-free community of people interested in doing the same at Seed & Sew.



“Emotional Intelligence” has become somewhat of a buzzword in today’s culture. In this episode, Alyssa breaks things down to describe how emotional intelligence is based on five components: self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills. “In terms of raising emotionally intelligent humans: We’re not talking about changing who kids are, but shifting how adults experience kids’ emotions.”

Topics discussed in this episode include:

  • Finding a pause between reaction and response
  • Learning to regulate and choose words and actions wisely
  • Intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation: What is driving us?
  • Why are the birth-to-age 5 years so important?
  • Why our nervous system is like a battery; it drains throughout the day & needs to be recharged
  • And more!
