Mar: Developing Your Emotional Resilience (AMA)

Mar 26, 2014
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Eastern

Almost all of us work in a business environment that is intense and unrelenting.
Resilience simply refers to one’s ability to adapt to stressful situations or crises.  More resilient managers are able to accept life changes and adapt to adversity without lasting difficulties, while less resilient managers have a much harder time handling stress and change.

Managing emotions is a fundamental part of resilience.  This can mean managing the emotions that you experience or managing the emotions of those around you.  Good emotional resilience enables you to increase productivity, improve morale, reduce absenteeism, retain your best people and improved team relations.
When you understand the role of emotions in resilience, you will have the ability to understand when they can drain resilience and when they can facilitate or enhance resilience.

So what do these emotions mean?
Emotions are not about being soft and fluffy. Rather, they are vital in helping you make hard, direct management decisions.  There is intelligence in emotions and intelligence can be brought to emotions.

This webcast explains the role of emotions in management and explores how and why managing your emotions can help make you a better leader. You’ll see real examples and get loads of practical hints that you can use straight away.
