The Mark Twain Library and the Small Business Circle present…Emotional Intelligence: Two Questions and Answers
Have these questions and others answered by motivational speaker, Chuck Wolfe on Thursday, April 25th at 7:30 p.m. at the Mark Twain Library in Redding.
- Why does it matter?
- How can you improve?
It matters because emotions are always present. Emotions drive our thoughts, our self-talk, and these thoughts drive behaviors. If we want behavior change in ourselves, or in others, we need to understand the role emotions play and how we can change them. If we don’t pay attention to our emotions, or to the emotions of others, the damage we might do is sometimes irreversible.
One leading strategy for improving how people manage emotions is the Emotion Roadmap, an innovation created by Chuck Wolfe. The Roadmap has helped countless individuals improve how they deal with change, conflict, performance, teams, relationships, and many other areas. The Roadmap also helps people handle specific emotions such as depression, anger, fear, and anxiety. In this 90 minute presentation Chuck will describe the Roadmap and share cases from his leadership coaching practice and audio clips from his radio show “The Emotion Roadmap: Take the Wheel and Control How You Feel.” Participants will leave with strategies for improving how they deal with challenging situations involving strong emotions at work and at home.
