Personal Mastery & Emotional Intelligence
19th Feb 2020 - 20th Feb 2020
On this programme you will develop skilful self-regulation, that is, the ability to control your own reactions, including inappropriate behaviours, and instead finding a more appropriate substitute behaviour or activity to put in its place. Emotionally, self-regulation is the ability to calm yourself down when you’re upset and cheer yourself up when you’re down. The signifiers of emotional self-regulation are easily identified. A person who knows how to self-regulate possesses:
- an inclination towards reflection and thoughtfulness;
- acceptance of uncertainty and change; and
- integrity – specifically, the ability to control poor impulsive behaviour.
Why is self-regulation so imperative for leaders?
Reasonable people—the ones who maintain control over their emotions—are the people who can sustain safe, fair environments. In these settings, drama is very low and productivity is very high. Top performers flock to these organisations and are not apt to leave them. Self-regulation actually has a ripple effect. More positive attitudes at the top mean more positive attitudes throughout the organisation.
