Managing Self to Manage Others

Learning How to Reduce Our Emotional Reactivity

Leaders, by definition, influence others to make things happen in the world. They do not work in isolation. Our best leaders are those who make it a priority to understand themselves and those they lead. They are able to recognize and intentionally choose to react (or not) to what they are feeling and thinking, and to what others are saying and doing (or not doing). They can predict and calmly observe how their words and behaviors affect other people and groups. These hard-won milestones of maturity form the fundamentals of leadership.

Mastering these fundamentals is a lifelong process. Successful leaders have worked long and hard to act strategically, instead of reacting unconsciously or automatically, to challenging people, feelings, and situations.

Learn what triggers you, how you typically react, and what you can do to improve your work and personal life in this challenging session of self-discovery, which includes a detailed emotional reactivity self-assessment.
