As leaders, we are expected to always maintain control. But what happens when we are (literally) slapped in the face?In this episode, Michel looks at the incident at the Academy Awards from Chris Rock’s perspective.In order to control your emotions, no matter the situation, start by identifying your emotions. When we see others who are “emotionally aware”, what are the qualities we admire? This is a great process for identifying your (and others) emotions.It might seem obvious to identify our emotions, but according to research done by Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves, “only 36% of people can identify the emotions they experience.”
What are some emotions you notice? When do you notice them?If you were “slapped in the face” (whatever that might mean for you) would you be able to maintain control?
Loss of control is not a goal.
This is why you must have strategies when your emotions kick in.
Michel continues by sharing her “ISMS” framework, to help you, “identify”, “strategize”, “manage” and “share” challenging emotional moments.Or simply remembered as, “I Steer Myself”Emotions do not define you, you define your emotions. Upskill Community is a place where leaders come together for support and navigating emotional awareness.Click here for more information.Thank you for listening!
