Emotional Fitness Workouts

    Cutting edge research demonstrates that superior performance is directly linked to exercising emotional competence at work. Emotional competence is the capacity to align goals, actions and values. Worldwide studies show that from frontline workers to CEOs, people who have developed these competencies produce dramatic bottom-line results.

    This interactive fitness series provides practical tools for exercising self-leadership and interpersonal effectiveness, the critical skills for managing transitions and thriving in today's demanding world of work. After an initial fitness assessment, the series features five workouts, each one experiential, high-energy and "just in time." These workouts range from 90 minutes to three hours in length depending on your needs. The sessions are co-facilitated with exciting presenters such as Ann Hibbard, Sandy Crowe, Jackie Jordan Davis, and Stuart Heller.
