Emotional Management - Essential Skills for High Stress PositionsHome / Employee Development / Seminars and Workshops
Emotions are harnessed and emotional intelligence developed with the skills acquired in this seminar, improving performance and leadership skills.
Whether you are a firefighter, police officer, nurse or in some other fast-paced, critical decision-making position, emotional management is essential to your success. Studies show 76.6% of Americans face the effects of emotional stress on a daily basis. Emotional stress impacts every decision we make and every action we take. Ultimately, in high stress environments, emotionally balanced professionals make more effective decisions and choices.
Becoming proficient in emotional management is essential to developing self-security and the ability to effectively deal with the pressures and obstacles that inevitably arise in emotionally charged and fast-paced environments.
When removing employees from emotionally stressful environments is not an option, developing their ability to use strategies and coping skills is critical to individual and organizational success. In this course, you will learn how to identify and understand your best emotional response to stress, how to better communicate under stress, make better decisions and reduce burn-out in even the most challenging positions.
