Working with Emotional Agility

This Emotional Agility training course covers the emotional tools for effective teamwork and team management. You will learn how to handle your emotions effectively, increase your resilience, and improve your performance. Topics include emotional agility development, dealing with stressful situations, and cultivating trust and transparency. 

This course is a crossover between the worlds of professional soft skills and therapeutic self-development. It has a less “corporate” flavour than most ISOC courses, because managing emotions requires inner work (feeling) as well as practical tools (thinking).

This course is available face-to-face and in a shortened version live online.
