How to Manage Emotions on the Job

I will break down each step of the process, showing you how to assess the truth, examine your motives, prepare for potential unexpected reactions, and weigh the long-term benefits of your actions. Through practical tips and personal anecdotes, you’ll see how taking a moment to pause, assess, and act can lead to a happier, healthier, and more emotionally resilient you in the workplace.
The Emotionally Savvy Assessment (TM)
- Is this true? Or is it truth?
- What do I hope will happen based on what I want to do?
- Am I comfortable with the fact that my message might not be received in the way I want?
- What is the benefit to me of continuing on this path?
Do you struggle with processing your emotions on the job? I’ve been there and got the t-shirt. In this episode, I look at how to manage emotions and prevent career limiting mistakes. The Emotionally Savvy Assessment (ESA) is a powerful framework I developed through my own high-stress experiences. The ESA includes four questions that can help you manage your emotions at work, allowing you to build confidence and take charge of your career. Here are several of the key points from this episode:
- Emotions and the Truth: One of the questions in the ESA asks whether what you are upset about is factual or just your personal interpretation. This question is crucial in helping you evaluate your emotions at work. It’s easy to let emotions run wild when you’re dealing with a difficult colleague or when a project goes awry. Asking yourself this question helps you take a step back and identify whether your emotions are valid or not.
- What Do You Hope Will Happen Next: The second question in the ESA asks what you hope will come from your actions. When you’re feeling emotional, it’s easy to make impulsive decisions that could negatively impact your career. This question forces you to think about what you want to achieve and how your actions can help you reach your goals, rather than just reacting to your emotions in the moment.
- Preventing Career Limiting Mistakes: By taking the ESA assessment, you can avoid making career limiting mistakes. In the emotionally charged workplace, impulsive and emotional decisions can often lead to negative consequences that you never intended. The ESA helps you assess your emotions and make more strategic decisions that will help you build confidence and move your career forward.
In conclusion, managing emotions at work is crucial to achieving success in your career. The ESA framework provides a simple yet effective tool that can help you stay in control of your emotions and avoid making career limiting mistakes. By pausing to answer the four quick questions, you can gain clarity and better understand how to approach the situation at hand.
Don’t let emotions get the best of you; take charge of your career and use the ESA framework to your advantage. Remember, with practice and persistence, emotional intelligence can be developed and lead you towards greater success. Start using the ESA framework today and see the positive impact it can have on your personal and professional growth.
