Enhancing Emotional Resilience is essential, especially during difficult times. Are you struggling with anxiety and stress during these times of uncertainty? Learning how to cope with stress, become more emotionally resilient, adapt to these rapid changes, and have a more positive outlook on the future are all the by-products of enhancing your emotional intelligence, and this keynote will show you how.



The COVID-19 pandemic has unified us in our stress and anxiety. Many of us are worried, anxious, depressed, lonely, and bored, and experts don’t expect to dissipate any time soon. When you compile self-isolation, financial hardships, or working on the front-lines, with everything else, people are feeling scared about their futures, worried about their safety and health, and quite frankly, it is a big hole to dig out of.

In times of extreme stress and uncertainty, the answer is emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is the ability to use the information provided by our emotions to act appropriately in the face of daily challenges. In short, it can help you think clearly and solve problems under pressure. 

Let’s face it – the coronavirus has been one of the most disrupting influences in our lifetime. We all must take a moment to pause and determine how we are feeling and what triggered that emotion. Based on our feelings and triggers, we can make a conscious choice on how to respond and think about the impact of that response. It is hard to remain calm with all that is going on. Stress and anxiety are not usual, but there are tools and techniques to help you manage that stress and support one another during challenging times.

“Set peace of mind as your highest goal and organize your life around it.”

Brian Tracy

In this keynote, we will cover some stress-coping best practices to help you handle whatever life is throwing at you. We will show you how to become more emotionally resilient and mentally tough during difficult times of uncertainty, and walk away with a plan to stay calm and positive about our futures.

Most people who have a high level of emotional resiliency can “roll with the punches” and adapt to adversity easier than those who don’t. Some people are less upset by changes and surprises and can go with whatever life throws at them. “When the going gets tough”, some people are born with a natural tendency to “just get going” and overcome problems more easily than others. 

The critical question is, do you have emotionally resilient and mentally tough workers? If not, how will that impact your business, especially when the pressure and stakes are high, and the results matter?

The good news is resilience can be developed with effort, patience, and practice, and your staff can become less sensitive to work life’s difficulties. Resilient people see challenges as temporary and problems as opportunities to learn from. They are persistent, self-confident, and have a high level of emotional intelligence. They can see the good in every situation, and use positive thinking to get through crises, as they see them as only short term.

Building emotional resilience and mental toughness is an ongoing learning process that will help you deal with the stresses in your life with greater ease, confidence, and optimism. Organizations need to help their employees build this crucial skill to overcome the many challenges that will inevitably lie ahead.
