Building Confidence and shifting your Emotional State

Zoom Webinar
Thursday, 22 February 2024
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (UK time)
    • Nick Thomas, Nick Thomas & Associates

Many people believe that their emotional state is entirely dictated by external factors over which they have no control. For example, how often do we hear people say, ‘You make me angry/happy/sad’? In the workplace many develop and unconscious strategies that affect their emotional state and significantly affect their performance; typical examples include making telephone calls – particularly cold calls – and presenting or speaking in public. This empowering session shows delegates how to take control of their emotional state, shifting to the best possible state to achieve highly successful outcomes at work and at home.
