Become a better leader. Become emotionally fit.
Because emotions drive behavior.
Because emotions are contagious.
Because your emotions have the power to inspire, heal, and reassure, in times of chaos.
Now more than ever
During this pandemic, leaders are having to manage their own anxiety as well as the anxiety of their team. There is no playbook. Uncertainty triggers fear, overwhelm, confusion and anger. Projects are pushed back or placed on indefinite hold. While the financial impact continues to mount.
The Way Forward Is Through
Dismissing, denying, or numbing out emotions won't keep you or others safe. What will then? Acknowledging and identifying your emotions. Feeling your feelings, all of them. Sadness, anger, confusion, even despair. Emotions, when fully felt, dissipate, so that you can return to your best self.
Choose to be an emotionally fit leader
The choice to become emotionally fit is not just about choosing to be a better leader. It's a choice to be a better husband, wife, father, mother, son, or daughter.
If you want to increase your emotional intelligence, but don't know how, here's where to start the journey.
