How to Develop Emotional Resilience to Manage Stress
All of us work in a business environment that is constantly changing, is intense and is unrelenting. This can lead to high levels of anxiety at times.
Your resilience refers to your ability to cope and adapt to crises or stressful situations. Emotional resilience refers to how you use your emotions to develop your capability to manage stress and manage your resilience.
More resilient managers are able to accept life changes and adapt to adversity without lasting difficulties without anxiety, while less resilient managers have a much harder time with stress and change.
Emotions are not about being soft and fluffy, they are vital in help you to make hard, direct management decisions. Emotional resilience can mean managing the emotions that you yourself experience or managing the emotions of those around you. Good emotional resilience enables you to increase productivity, improve morale, reduce absenteeism, retain your best people and improve team relations.
Effective emotional resilience is a core component of emotional intelligence and can help with the application of emotional intelligence in the workplace to avoid burnout.
In this personal development course, we will explore the role of emotions in management, how and why they contain vital bits of information that can help you make better decisions and become more effective at managing stress. You’ll receive all the information you need. You will be coached using loads of practical hints that you can use straight away.
The course is made up of a series of lectures, quizzes and a series of interactive practical activities that involve some engagement with other people and some reflection.
For example, by completing the Moods, Environments, Situations practical activity you will be able to identify what can help you and what can hinder you in your daily routines. A better awareness of the moods, environments and situations that impact upon your performance, for better or worse, helps you to develop strategies to cope.
Once you are aware of the types of moods, environments and situations that trigger these responses, you can begin to prepare new responses to gain more of what helps and less of what hinders.

The Learning Review is a vital (often over-looked) part of the course encouraging you to consider how you are going to apply your learning.
The course material makes up a one to two day workshop on emotional intelligence and stress management, so is equivalent to 8 -12 hour’s training.
PLEASE NOTE – This course is NOT for you if you are not prepared to work through the practical activities that make up a fundamental part of the course. Emotional resilience and stress management cannot be developed by learning some techniques through watching a few video lectures. The course requires you to do some reflective thinking, to get some feedback and to discuss your development with others. I’m afraid that you won’t get the best from the course unless you are prepared to do this.
The course is being continually refined and updated to ensure it remains current and relevant.
The course is featured in the Udemy for Business catalogue. A few people are instructed to take the course under duress by their organisation. The course has recently been given 2 star ratings from a number of learners without comments for some reason – not the behaviour expected of people with emotional resilience! I am not sure why this is. I have thanked each person and asked for some feedback but have had no response and so I am unable to address any issues within the course.
Watch the preview lecture on The Inclusive Leader and Feedback. Constructive feedback is always welcome as I want to made this course the best that it can be. This is explored in Lecture 8 – Giving and Receiving Feedback in a Manner That Is Not Stressful , which is a free preview lecture.
The course is being continually refined and updated to ensure it remains current and relevant. Feedback is always welcome.
