About Dr. Rick Hammett

Rick Hammett, Ed.D.

Rick is a co-principal with Gary Low of Emotional Intelligence Learning Systems, Inc. (EILS) and the Emotional Intelligence Training and Research Institute (EITRI).   EILS is an education, research, and publishing concern dedicated to building healthy and effective individuals, schools, organizations, and communities. EITRI is a collegial association of professionals devoted to advancing emotional intelligence (EI) in school, work, and life.

His philosophy provides for positive and personally meaningful change, best achieved through a person-centered teaching/coaching perspective that includes the transformative emotional intelligence (EI) approach of Nelson and Low (1977 – present).   In his work with clients, students, and colleagues Rick integrates the Emotional Learning System (ELS) (Nelson & Low, 2003), with EILS’s family of positive assessment instruments to teach emotional intelligence, personal skills, and leadership development.

Rick enjoys teaching doctoral research courses and supervising doctoral dissertation research online for Walden University. His research and professional interests include psychometry and the measure of latent human factors; how counseling and coaching theories enhance individual and group performance, organizational and school development—especially the development of EI leadership theory and models—and social-emotional learning standards for curricula across all levels of education.  He co-created an Emotional Intelligence Leadership Theory (Nelson, Low, & Hammett, 2008), the HLN-EI Leadership Model (Hammett, Low, & Nelson, 2007), the Personal Excellence Map (PEM) (Nelson, Low, & Hammett, 2007), and developed a more dynamic representations of the Emotional Learning System (ELS). Rick also co-authored Professional Coaching: A Research-Based Transformational Model (Nelson, Low, Hammett, & Sen, 2013).
