About the session 

How NFP managers can make their teams emotionally resilient to control emotions and manage stress

“Emotional resilience” training can help staff or volunteers understand their emotions and how to use them as a positive force in delivering happiness and improved safety outcomes. It shows how a person’s everyday behaviour impacts on their emotions and gives them the knowledge and skills to control their emotions and those of others, and reduce their stress levels.

This presentation is for managers who manage employees with a challenging client base. The session explains the evidence informing ‘Emotional Resilience’ training and the emerging positive findings for employee outcomes and organisational effectiveness using data from over 200 NFP employees.
