Talking about Fears and Feelings… It’s Not Just for Therapists Anymore

Did the words fears, feelings, and therapists in this title trigger something for you? Did you have a visceral reaction in your body when you read it? Have you already decided you don’t want to have anything to do with this session? Please… keep reading.

We’ve heard the message loud and clear that emotions don’t belong at work. They are messy, risky, unpredictable, and frankly get in the way of making decisions. We’ve also heard the message ‘bring your whole self to work’ but if/when we do, only a few people have the skills (and confidence) to deal with the ‘whole self’. But what if talking about fears and feelings is a pathway to unlocking potential in people and yourself? What if you could use thoughts and emotions to create lasting change instead of falling into old, unproductive habits? What would happen in your organization (or your home) if you used a model (that therapists use) as a way to ensure you’re solving the right problems instead of simply putting a band-aid on them?

Join Lisa in this open and engaging discussion where you’ll reach beyond emotional intelligence to emotional literacy. You’ll learn a ‘roots to fruits’ model and practice applying it in order to lead your team from a place of care, connection, and humanity while focusing on driving the business forward.
