Becoming an Emotional Ninja

Join us for this workshop if you are looking to improve your emotional intelligence and limit the impact of negative emotionsBecoming an Emotional Ninja

When the world around you changes in an unprecedented way managing emotions can be difficult. Without normal structures and routines many may spiral into bouts of strong negative emotions such as depression, fear and frustration.

Organisation’s are trying to support staff remotely who are all dealing with different challenges. Some are isolated and lonely, some are struggling to cope with increased family needs and others are fearful around health or vulnerable family members who are far away.

Building skills in emotional intelligence can help to develop resilience and ensure that the negative emotions come, but don’t linger too long and we are able to have more positive emotional experiences.


Why Emotions Matter?

When people hear ‘emotion’ they often think it is soft and fluffy and not related to business. Surely people succeed by keeping emotions out of the workplace? Right? We can’t help but have emotions. They are always there and they always influence how we behave, whether we choose to recognise them or not.



“Unexpressed emotions are not benign, they metastasise and come out in unpredictable ways.”
Brene Brown


  • Determine where we direct our attention, what we remember and what we learn
  • Affect how we make decisions and whether we are optimistic and risk taking or pessimistic and risk adverse
  • Impact how well we are able to build and maintain relationships with others and our success in social interactions
  • Cause physiological responses in the body and impact our overall health and well being
  • Influence how creative we are and how well we are able to achieve efficiency and high performance


Basically, emotions matter for every important aspect of our life. Emotions are not ‘soft’ they are ‘hard’; in that they are difficult to master and impact every tangible outcome that we might use to measure our success in life.
