Developing Your Emotional Resilience

Wednesday, 26 March 2014 12:00pm

 

Learn How to Manage Your Emotions to Develop Your Resilience

Almost all of us work in a business environment that is intense and unrelenting.

Resilience simply refers to one’s ability to adapt to stressful situations or crises.  More resilient managers are able to accept life changes and adapt to adversity without lasting difficulties, while less resilient managers have a much harder time handling stress and change.

Managing emotions is a fundamental part of resilience.  This can mean managing the emotions that you 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 improved team relations.

When you understand the role of emotions in resilience, you will have the ability to understand when they can drain resilience and when they can facilitate or enhance resilience.

So what do these emotions mean?

Emotions are not about being soft and fluffy. Rather, they are vital in helping you make hard, direct management decisions.  There is intelligence in emotions and intelligence can be brought to emotions.

This webcast explains the role of emotions in management and explores how and why managing your emotions can help make you a better leader. You’ll see real examples and get loads of practical hints that you can use straight away.

The Librarian as the Candidate; or How to Run Against Your Own Library and Win

Wednesday, 19 March 2014 3:00pm

From the president down to local races, voters are activated by candidates they “know,” not platforms or policy statements. For library elections or funding advocacy, your work as a librarian makes you the best kind of candidate.

In advocacy, we tend to talk to the public, to funders, and to voters about our institutions. We need to instead introduce you, the professional librarians, as change-agents in your communities who are worth the funding.

Power Up Story Time by TALKING: Reading with Toddlers and Preschoolers in Small Groups

Wednesday, 19 March 2014 2:00pm

 

From babyhood through school age, books play important roles in children’s lives. They support language and concept development, provide information and entertainment, deepen adult-child relationships, support creativity and the arts, foster social-emotional growth and the development of resiliences, and prime children for later school and life success.

For a young child, a book can be a familiar friend — or a door to an exciting new world. But all of these potentials can only be realized when we choose books well, share them in small groups or individually, and use them as springboards for enriching conversations.
