Anxiety is very difficult to overcome.  When we experience heightened levels of anxiety, all aspects of our lives suffer.  We become less productive at work, our personal relationships suffer, and it becomes more challenging for us to complete even the most basic of tasks.  For most of us, as we start to experience heightened levels of anxiety, it becomes self-reinforcing and causes even higher levels of anxiety.  It can be extremely difficult to break out of that cycle.  Does any of this sound familiar?  Would you like to learn how to reduce the anxiety levels in your life?  Would you like to learn strategies that can help you avoid increasing levels of anxiety?  This half-day workshop can help.


Why do we act the way we do?  What causes us to experience strong negative emotions?  Frequently, are actions are driven by our emotions…we simply react to what we feel.  However, in many situations, we may be pre-disposed to feeling very powerful negative emotions…how can we better understand the sources / root causes of those emotions?  Have you ever been in a situation where you simply felt anger, anxiety, or fear for no apparent reason?  There are a number of different drivers that will cause us to feel certain emotions in specific situations, for no apparent reason.  Would you like to learn how to identify those emotional drivers so you can better understand why you feel the way you do?  


How many times were you in a situation where you just reacted without thinking?  Then, once you had a chance to reflect on your actions, you wish you would have reacted differently.  As human beings, we are hard-wired to react to external stimuli before we think…it’s part of our “fight-or-flight” mechanism and is embedded in our limbic system…the part of the brain that receives the stimuli before it moves on to the rational part of our brain.  In modern times, we frequently have issues / conflicts that arise as a direct result of our acting before we have had the chance to think about it.  


How many times have you had to repeat yourself multiple times because the person you were communicating with did not understand what you were trying to say / do?  Have you ever failed to accomplish a specific task due to this lack of understanding?  People simply do not communicate effectively in today’s society.  Many have attributed this deterioration in communication skills to the rise of electronic communication…email, social media, text messing and the like.  When we communicate electronically, we lose a significant amount of information about our intent, emotions, etc. 


There are several reasons that we may not be performing at our optimal levels: fear of failure; lack of goal clarity; conflict with team-mates; conflict with coaches; acting in your own best interest instead of the best interests of the team; illness (physical or mental); or succumbing to our negative emotions.  Many times, this poor performance can be traced back to a single event or cause.  Something happened in the competition that set you and your team off in a downward spiral and things just got worse from there.  No matter what you did, your performance kept deteriorating.  


“Beyond Emotional Intelligence – Never Have Another Bad Day!” outlines the approach that has been developed over the last decade that will truly transform your life.  It’s different from emotional intelligence (EQ) in one major way…EQ is very reactive in that you are simply reacting to your emotions and the emotions of those around you.  Beyond Emotional Intelligence introduces a concept called emotional dexterity, which is a much deeper and proactive way to manage your emotional state and well being.  It starts with the foundation of the 7Cs – aka the mindset of optimal performance.  


Effective leadership is critical in today’s ever-changing world.  This constant change is a major source of stress and anxiety, not only in the workplace, but also in our personal lives.  This stress and anxiety causes tension, resulting in increased conflict in both the workplace and in our personal lives.  To become a more effective leader, we need to not only manage these tensions in our own lives, but also in the lives of our followers.  Would you like to learn specific tools and techniques, leveraging the power of emotional intelligence that can make you a more effective leader?  


Stress is a major part of our lives today.  We live in a constant state of change, which by itself can be very stressful for some people.  Stress also occurs at work, sometimes due to the change, but other times due to conflict with colleagues, strict deadlines, or just simply from being in a bad mood.  Stress occurs at home, where you are trying to balance various aspects of your personal life, from spirituality to relationships, to having some down time to focus on your loved hobbies.  Then there are major life events, like moving or starting a job.  Does any of this sound familiar?
