What You'll Discover In This Episode:
When my husband acts concerned, I know there’s a great reason to be concerned because it’s extremely rare for him to act concerned. That’s because Joe has mastered the skill of remaining calm in the face of adversity.
He is capable of staying cool, calm, and collected in situations that send others into a panicked frenzy. That mastery has served Joe well because it’s enabled him to stay in control, act sensibly, and make good decisions despite whatever adversity is thrown at him - adversity that would make many run around like chickens with their heads cut off or push them over the edge into despair.
Panicked business owners cannot run their businesses effectively. Joe has trained himself to be emotionally resilient in times of stress and we could all learn a lesson from him (I know I have!)
While my husband’s not eager to be a guest on the podcast, I did successfully find an expert on emotional resilience who has made a great career out of coaching and training others on coping with what’s going on in their lives so they can show up their best and better prepare for adversity in the future.
In this episode of Productivity Straight Talk, I sit down with the Director of Ei4Change, Business Psychologist, and Emotional Intelligence Trainer, Robin Hills, to dive into his world of emotional intelligence and emotional resilience. We discuss how business owners can remain cool, calm, and collected in the face of adversity (and thus make better business decisions) by developing their emotional resilience.
