    Women Leading with Impact: Resilience and Strategic Risk-Taking - NYC

    Why do some women thrive professionally while others are passed over for career advancement opportunities? The answer is often a lack of resilience and resistance to taking risks—due to a variety of factors. For women, it is especially important to develop greater “bounce back” skills and gain more comfort with strategic risk-taking. Fortunately, the ability to transform challenges into growth and to leverage leadership skills to one’s best advantage can be learned. This course gives you powerful, practical techniques to reframe uncertainty, welcome healthy conflict, adapt to tough challenges and move out of your comfort zone to embrace new pathways to advancement.

    How to Manage Your Emotions While Under Stress

    Maintain Control in Every Situation at Work

    Every part of your work life places you in close proximity to people trying to get their unique jobs done. You have demanding clients, colleagues who are wonderful to work with and some with whom you have a sometimes tense relationship.

    When you add in the constant requests, expectations and demands you face on a daily basis, you have a recipe for stress. At those times when tensions run high, emotions get frayed. An angry word, foul mood or bungled interaction can significantly damage your relationships with bosses and coworkers.

    You can’t change the way others feel and act; you can only change the way you react to them.

    This webinar gives you the opportunity to develop the steady self-control that people respond to and respect. You’ll discover powerful tips and tactics to help lessen the intensity and duration of someone else’s outburst and help you stay calm while dealing with challenging situations. It helps you build a foundation for more positive days at work, with a proactive approach to managing your emotions in stressful situations.

    LEARN MOREREGISTER NOW

    • Recognize how you respond to stress and develop strategies for staying cool
    • Manage your emotional energy at work and carry less stress back home
    • Develop the steady self-control it takes to communicate with others when emotions are high
    • Break on-the-job habits that cause self-induced stress such as procrastination and perfectionism
