Helping Men Strengthen their Emotional Resiliency: a 6 week coaching program
Leading a business is challenging at the best of times. There’s always uncertainty, risk and failure that needs to be managed. But now, with all of the challenges that arise daily with the Covid-19 situation, I’m beginning to think that if another curve ball is thrown at our business, I’m going to throw the bat at the pitcher, spit on the catcher, and stomp off the field.
I’d like to do that, but that wouldn’t be very useful.
I know a lot of leaders right now who are feeling like that — on the outside they’re working hard to hold everything together, trying to stay focused and positive, but on the inside it feels like it’s about to fall apart.
We’re not only worrying about our own families and jobs, but also about the jobs and families of our coworkers, colleagues and our clients.
Its a lot of emotional weight to carry. And, when humans carry that much pressure, there are usually signs.
The first sign that I’m not dealing with the pressure well is outbursts of anger. Small irritations that I’d normally grumble about become big deals. My filter gets dialed back, and I start to say things that aren’t … beneficial. And, the people who get the worst of it are those closest to me: my family and my trusted colleagues.
That’s never how I want to be.
Having studied Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, and many books on Psychotherapy, I have created a program designed to help reduce the intensity of strong emotions. Where its been most useful for me and my leadership has been in dealing with my anger. I’ve put the best lessons I’ve gained from all my study, and condensed it into a 6 week group program.
But before I share more about the program, I want to share some practical information to help you right now.
Video 1: How to Quickly Recover
In this video, I share practical tools to help you recover quickly from an intense emotion, and also explain a little about why we get stuck in emotional reactions.
Video 2: The Purpose of Anger
All emotions have a purpose — they are tools to guide our decision making. Anger is a useful emotion when we know why we are feeling it. In this video I share the primary emotional reasons we experience anger (and it’s not as obvious as you would think).
Video 3: How to turn Anger into Skillful Action
Now that we’ve recovered from the initial stimulus, and we know what the root cause of our anger is, we can redirect that energy. This video explains how you can practically and quickly do that.
