Presenters: Linda Pedelty and host Kristi Chester Vance, TREC
Anyone else feeling like they are even more short-fused than usual? Do you find your emotions swinging wildly in the course of a week or even a single day? It’s not just you. But there are some things you can do to help even out your keel, no matter what comes up around you, or what comes up within you.
Self-awareness and self-management are two essential parts of what’s commonly referred to as emotional intelligence, which forms the foundation of our ability to work with others. These two skills are key to finding your center and staying grounded in turbulent times—which in turn helps you be your most effective self as you turn and face your work and those around you. While building our emotional intelligence is lifelong work, some basic practices that can super boost your understanding and ability in these two areas. In this webinar, Linda will help you understand why we may get “hooked” by strong emotions; she’ll also share some pragmatic, instantly accessible tools, to find the superpower that will help stay emotionally grounded when the world is spinning around you.
