    Can you accurately read a situation and understand what’s really happening? Can you pick up on the emotional undercurrents that could be charging the environment?

    Decisions and the decision-making process can be influenced by our emotions. Understanding how our emotions can influence our decisions can allow you to make better decisions and understand how those decisions can impact others.

    Building on our previous discussions, during this session we’ll be talking about how the facts of a situation compare to what you might be feeling …and why. And perhaps most importantly, how to determine if your response appropriate given your interpretation?

    During this webinar we will:

    • Discuss how emotional intelligence can be a powerful bubble-popping, de-escalation tool.
    • How to think through what you are feeling
    • How to compare your feelings to the facts of the situation

    This is part of a six-part series:
