Shownotes

Think about the last time you were upset in your professional life. Maybe you were angry, or sad (or both). What did you do with that emotion? Did you allow it to affect you in a way that it threw you off your game?

Our skill at managing emotions - of all kinds - can be measured by something called emotional intelligence. It’s not about removing the emotions, quite the opposite. How do you manage them so you can continue working toward your goals?

In this episode, we look at a real-life example of managing emotions during an emotionally charged campaign for change at the local level. And we introduce you to Marc Brackett, the founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence.
