How customers feel when they interact with an employee determines how they feel about the company itself. Loyalty is lost or strengthened in every interaction between a company and its customers.” – Daniel Goleman, Working with Emotional Intelligence

Managing in the Moment

Imagine this—the materials don’t arrive, clients are hot under the collar, technology fails. In other words, everything that could go wrong does go wrong. What do you do? How do you manage?

Situations arise that have the potential for crisis. Competence and confidence to “manage in the moment” comes from preparation in “what ifs” to minimize escalation, self-regulation to remain centered and people management skills to calm others.

Participants are guided through pivotal inquiry protocols to establish potential situations, identify Plan A and Plan B, tap their expertise, experience and brainstorm fresh approaches. Individuals will be involved in role-play and work through a planning chart to establish locus of control and techniques to effectively handle stressful situations.


Emotional Fatigue –Caring for me as I care and serve others

Do you find fulfillment in serving others?

Do you feel really good when a customer says, “You made my day!”?

Do you serve the public, care a lot about doing a good job and face a stream of customers with varying degrees of challenges?

If you answered yes, to any of these, then you are most likely at risk for emotional fatigue which can make you feeling drained, overworked, overly sensitive and even sometimes brittle.

Identify symptoms, profile characteristics that make you prone to fatigue and assess what you can do to nurture you so you can deliver the quality of care and service you desire. Learn and apply useful self-care and resiliency strategies that strengthen feelings of balance and immunity to the potential occupational risks of delivering compassion service and care.
