Learn How to Manage Your Emotions to Develop Your Resilience
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.

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.

What is more, it is increasingly clear that strong personal online networks play a role in the growth of organizational online community and networks.
In this webinar, we’ll cover the value of developing your online PLN, stages of growth, factors that influence the strength and development of any personal learning network, and PLN learning objectives.

Why are some clients or co-workers so frustrating to work with? Or more importantly, why would anyone think of YOU as a difficult person?
For example, isn’t it irritating when the person across the desk or on the phone can’t seem to ever make a decision… or makes a snap decision only to change it a day later?
In this highly interactive and engaging presentation, you will discover why “different” does not have to mean “difficult.” Then you will learn the magic of making slight adjustments in your awareness and behavior that will have a significant impact on your ability to “click” with customers and co-workers.
You will laugh as you identify your behavior style, as well as those with whom you work. While you laugh, you will also learn that people are different and that “intent” doesn’t always equal “impact.” In short, you will realize how to make work… less work!
