One issue that often comes up during the training and workshops I do with managers is that many adults have never learned to assume emotional responsibility for themselves. We have a tendency to believe that the way others behave in our world, how they act and what they say (or don’t say), drives our emotional health and determines how we feel. Unfortunately, this happens not only in the professional world, but personal as well.
So why do we put our emotional health outside of ourselves and allow others to have control over it?
Tune in to learn why so many people give control of their emotional health to others and how it affects their individual work, as well as their teams. It is one of the most disempowering things we can do as managers. We are responsible for how we feel in every moment, no matter what others do or say around us.
