The circumstances we find ourselves in today provide fertile ground for difficult emotions. There’s something new to cope with Every. Single. Day. And many times we find our emotions getting the best of us. Today we are going to take charge of those feelings with emotional intelligence, the antidote that will help you and those you serve navigate those difficult emotions.

  • Turn down the heat on your emotional pressure cooker so you can release steam in a healthy way.
  • Name it and tame it. Fear, anxiety, concern, frustration and anger sometimes boil together into an overwhelming soup of emotions. Identifying the individual emotions takes much of their power away.
  • Stop the fight/flight emotional firing in your brain and reengage the thinking regions of your brain to regain control of runaway emotions.
