Know Your Emotional Triggers and Stop Them (Before They Stop You)

According to research from numerous studies, emotional intelligence is a key predictor of success. In this course, you’ll learn how to apply some of the key components of EQ to your personal performance. Class one begins with a lengthy look into why emotional intelligence is a critical factor for successful leaders. You’ll also find out how emotions drive behaviors (even when we don’t intend it to happen).

Class two will give you an in-depth look inside the human mind. Learn about the components of the human brain, particularly the part that’s responsible for emotions. You’ll learn about the interplay between the amygdala and the vagus nerve and why your amygdala can hijack your actions when you need to be at your strongest. This class includes a vital lesson in how to recognize your emotional triggers, a key component of self-awareness.

The third and final class will help you respond to amygdala hijacks with deliberate thoughts. You’ll find out about the importance of impulse control and how a few simple actions can keep you from overreacting when a trigger occurs. You’ll also learn how to anticipate amygdala hijacks and have a plan in place to handle them should they happen.
