Ep #113: Things I Suck At Part 3: Managing My Emotions

I got some great feedback recently from one of the executive leaders in my advanced training program.

She had been spinning out and feeling super frustrated at work, and I had coached her on how to solve the issue by managing her emotions.

She was grateful, and her feedback to me was this:

“Instead of saying you coach women to get a promotion, you should really say you coach women not to lose their minds.”

And you know what? I do.

I talk women leaders off the ledge all the time.

That’s why I dedicated module 3 of my Executive Ahead of Time program to teaching my students how to manage their emotions.

And I know my process works, because everything I teach is something I have done for myself.

But, I used to really suck at it.

So today I am sharing the tips and tricks that have had the biggest impact for me.

This is the final episode of a three-part series I’ve lovingly named: Things I Suck At.

In each episode, I focus on something I am terrible at and share practical advice so you can stop sucking at this too.

In this episode of Maximize your Career with Stacy Mayer, I am laying out all the strategies and tools that have helped me work with my emotions and step into higher levels of leadership as a result.
