Why Choose This Training?

More Than Just A Course Of Lectures

What gets in the way of developing and holding on to new communication skills are old habits of thinking and speaking. Even if the advice is very good the reason why it rarely sticks are the mental habits people inevitably revert to, especially under pressure.

Unlearning those old habits and internalising a more effective and lasting approach to communication needs more than a short course of lectures on how to do it.

What Makes This Training Stand Out?

What makes this training stand out is the exceptional support through one-to-one coaching sessions and continuous feedback. Changing behaviour is not an easy task as old habits are hard to break.

With a 40-year track record we can help you cultivate practical skills, and build your confidence to so you can successfully navigate real-world challenges, ensuring lasting behavioural improvements.

People who feel understood more receptive

The Importance of Talking About Feelings at Work

Talking about feelings at work improves the team's spirit. It helps everyone feel heard and valued, making work a nicer place to be.

The Impact of Emotions on Employee Engagement

Emotions at work can really change how engaged employees feel. Happy and supported workers often do better, stay longer, and help more. On the flip side, feeling upset or not valued can make people less interested in their jobs.

They might stop trying as hard or even think about leaving. It's all about making a space where everyone feels okay to share and deal with their feelings.

"Feeling safe and understood at work boosts engagement and team spirit."

Leaders play a big part here. They need to listen, offer support, and create an open environment. This helps everyone feel they can talk about what bothers them without fear of judgment.

Doing this well means stronger teams who are eager to contribute and stick around for the long haul.

Relationship Between Emotions and Engagement

Feelings at work shape how much we care and how hard we try. If you're happy and feel safe, you likely do better work. You might even help others more. But, if you're upset or anxious, it's harder to focus or be your best.

Each emotion, from joy to sadness, affects our job in big ways.

Leaders need to get this right – they play a huge role in setting the mood. A boss who listens can make staff feel heard and valued. This boost makes everyone want to give their all.

It's like a cycle; positive feelings lead to good work, which then creates more positive vibes around the office.

Managing Negative Emotions to Improve Engagement

Handling negative emotions at work can make a big difference in how happy and involved people feel. It's about finding ways to deal with feelings like anger, frustration, or sadness without letting them get in the way of your job.

This means learning strategies to manage these tough emotions on your own and talking things through with others when needed.

For example, if you're feeling upset or worried at work, taking a moment to breathe deeply could help calm you down. Talking to a friend at work or writing down what's bothering you can also be good steps.

The key is not keeping those feelings bottled up inside because doing so might make it hard for you to focus and do your best work. So, find what works for you – whether it's stepping outside for fresh air or having a chat - and use it to keep those negative emotions in check.

People can't help arguing when they feel misunderstood

Barriers and Challenges in Discussing Feelings at Work

Talking about feelings at work isn't always easy. People often worry what others will think, or they might feel it's not the right place for such chats.

Fear of judgment and vulnerability

Fear of judgment and vulnerability can make it hard to talk about feelings at work. People often worry that others might see them as weak or not professional if they show their emotions.

This fear stops many from speaking up when they're upset, anxious, or even excited about something. It's like carrying a heavy backpack that no one else can see - it makes moving forward much harder.

Opening up requires trust and feeling safe. Yet, in many workplaces, this safety is missing. The concern over how co-workers or bosses will respond is real. Will they listen? Or will it harm my career? These questions linger in the mind, making silence feel like the safer choice—even if it's not helpful in the long run.

Cultural norms

Cultural norms at work influence how comfortable we feel sharing our emotions. Some cultures see talking about feelings as a sign of weakness. They might think it's better to keep personal matters private.

This mindset can make it hard for people to open up, even when they're upset or frustrated.

"Respect for privacy doesn't mean we should ignore our own emotions or those around us."

In many places, the tide is turning towards more openness and understanding. Leaders are learning that caring about mental health and emotional well-being helps everyone do better.

It builds trust and makes teams stronger. So now, there's a big push to change old ways of thinking – encouraging everyone to express how they feel in a respectful and helpful manner.

Shift Towards Inclusion

Offices are now more open to talking about feelings. This change makes everyone feel welcome. People from different backgrounds can share their thoughts without fear. It's all about understanding and respecting each other's emotions.

This welcoming environment helps build trust among team members. Workers feel safer expressing themselves, leading to better teamwork and happier workplaces. Everyone feels they belong, which is key for a positive office vibe.

Assumptions About Feelings

People often think talking about feelings at work is not okay. They worry others will see them as weak. This thinking can make folks keep quiet when they're upset or stressed. It's a big reason many feel alone in tough times.

Some believe that work is just for tasks, not for sharing how you feel. They fear their words might be taken the wrong way. Or, they think it might hurt their career. So, they choose to stay silent, missing out on support they might get from others.

Cultural Norms

Cultural norms play a big role in how we share feelings at work. Some cultures see talking about emotions in the office as fine, while others might view it as unprofessional or too personal.

This can make people anxious about opening up, fearing they might not fit in or will be seen differently by their colleagues.

"Emotions are universal, but the way we express them at work can deeply depend on cultural norms."

Respecting these differences is key to creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels comfortable to speak up. It encourages understanding and shows compassion between coworkers from diverse backgrounds.

Making space for all voices helps develop stronger relationships and builds trust within teams.

Respect for Privacy

Respect for privacy at work is a big deal. It's about creating a space where everyone feels safe to share or keep their feelings to themselves. Some folks might feel anxious or uncomfortable talking about how they feel at work.

That's okay. The goal is to make sure they know it’s fine not to share everything. It's all about balance – respecting each other enough to listen but also knowing when not to push too hard.

Giving people the choice on what and how much they want to tell is key. This approach helps build trust and makes everyone feel more comfortable in the workplace. After all, feeling happy, frustrated, or upset comes with life – but deciding who knows what about those feelings should always be up to the person feeling them.

How to Talk About Your Feelings

To talk about your feelings at work, start by knowing what you feel and why. Then, find a good time and way to share these feelings with others. This can make work happier for everyone.

Read more to learn how this can change things at work!

Identifying Your Feelings

First, learn to know how you feel. This might sound easy, but most people mix up feelings with thoughts or actions. Feeling upset is different from thinking someone has wronged you.

Recognise whether you're feeling happy, sad, frustrated, or excited. These are core emotions and can guide your conversation at work.

"Understanding your emotions is the first step to expressing them."

Expressing yourself starts with this understanding. Say clearly what emotion you're experiencing instead of just explaining why it happened. If you feel uncomfortable at work, focus on that feeling rather than all the details leading up to it.

This makes conversations easier and helps others relate to what you're saying.

Expressing Yourself Effectively

Talking about your feelings at work helps you feel understood and can make the workplace better for everyone. It's good to know the right words to use. Saying "I feel upset" instead of "This is bad" shows it's about your feelings, not just the situation.

This way, people know it's how you see things and can respond kindly.

To express yourself well, think before you speak. Decide what feeling you want to share – like being happy, frustrated or concerned. Then find a calm time to talk. Use "I" statements, like "I feel excited when…" This makes sure you own your feelings without blaming others.

Talking clearly about what’s going on with you can help solve problems faster and builds trust with coworkers.

Self-Reflection and Emotional Regulation

Self-reflection helps you understand your feelings better. It's like looking into a mirror, but instead of seeing your face, you see what makes you feel happy or frustrated. This understanding is key to emotional regulation - the skill of keeping your emotions in check.

By reflecting, you can figure out why certain things at work make you feel a certain way. Then, with this knowledge, it becomes easier to control those feelings and not let them control you.

Emotional regulation means managing how we react to situations. Let’s say something at work makes you angry; instead of lashing out, emotional regulation teaches you to pause and choose how to respond calmly.

It’s about finding ways to stay calm and collected, even when things are tough. This skill lets us have more positive interactions at work because we're in charge of our emotions rather than letting them push us around.

Tools for Expressing Emotions Effectively

Finding the right tools to share how you feel can change the game at work. Learn simple ways to express yourself better and understand others without confusion.

Understanding basic core emotions

Knowing your basic emotions helps a lot at work. We all feel happy, sad, afraid, surprised, angry or disgusted sometimes. Learning what each feels like makes talking about them easier.

For instance, feeling frustrated might really be about being afraid to fail. If you can spot the difference, it's simpler to explain how you feel.

To talk well about feelings at work, first know these emotions in yourself. This way, you can say clearly if something makes you happy or upset without confusion. Plus, understanding others' body language adds to knowing if they’re stressed or fine.

So yes - getting the hang of those basic feelings is key before diving into deeper chats at work.

Reading and interpreting body language

Body language gives away more than we often realise. Eyes, hands, and posture can tell you if someone feels happy or stressed. This helps at work because it guides us on when to offer help or keep a distance.

For instance, crossed arms might mean someone is not open to ideas right now.

"Eyes speak louder than words."

Spotting these silent signals lets us understand colleagues better. It makes teamwork smoother. Imagine knowing just by looking if a teammate needs support or prefers to be alone. This skill takes practice but greatly improves how we connect without saying a word.

Identifying and expressing your own emotions

Knowing how to name your feelings is the first step. This might sound easy, but it often isn't. At work, we might feel happy, stressed, or annoyed but not always know which words fit best.

To get better at this, think about what makes you feel a certain way and give it a name - like "I feel frustrated when I have too much to do." Sharing these feelings can make things better because others understand where you're coming from.

After identifying them, expressing your emotions in clear terms is key. Say exactly what you feel and why in simple language. This helps avoid confusion and builds trust with colleagues.

For example, instead of just saying "I'm fine" when you're really not, try saying "I feel overwhelmed by this project because there's not enough time.” This honesty makes conversations more meaningful and can lead to solutions that make everyone happier at work.

Managing Emotions in the Workplace Using Emotional Intelligence

Using emotional intelligence at work helps us handle our feelings better. It lets us understand and manage both good and bad emotions in a smart way.

The most common emotions at work

At work, people often feel a mix of happiness, stress, sadness, and excitement. Happy moments come from achievements or good news. Stress pops up with deadlines and big projects. Sadness might creep in from missing out on something important or dealing with tough feedback.

Then there's the thrill of starting new tasks or hitting goals which brings excitement.

Feeling stressed is quite common due to pressure to meet targets. People also feel comfortable at times when they're surrounded by supportive teammates. But challenges can make them frustrated too.

Recognising these emotions helps in making work better for everyone. It encourages open talks and building trust among team members.

Impact of positive emotions and negative emotions

Positive emotions at work can make a big difference. They lead to more teamwork, creativity, and better problem-solving. People feel safe to share ideas and take risks. This boosts how much everyone cares about their job.

Negative emotions have the opposite effect. They can cause stress, lower performance, and make people less connected to their work and each other. It's key to manage these feelings well to keep a healthy workplace environment where everyone feels valued and supported.

The relationship between emotions and employee engagement

Feelings at work play a big part in how engaged employees are. If people feel happy and valued, they usually do better work. This is because positive emotions can make tasks seem easier and boost teamwork.

On the other hand, feeling down or upset can make work harder and lower interest in tasks.

It's key for bosses to notice and manage these feelings to keep up good engagement. They should try to understand workers' emotions and help with any problems. By doing this, they create a happier place where everyone wants to do their best work.

This shows that talking about your feelings at work can really help the whole team do well together.

Coping mechanisms for employee emotions

Coping with emotions at work can be tough. Everyone has their own way of handling feelings, but some methods can really make a difference. Here are top tips on how to manage those tricky emotions:

  1. Take deep breaths. This simple act can calm your nerves and make you think clearer.
  2. Talk to someone you trust. Sharing your feelings can lighten the load.
  3. Write it down. Putting your thoughts on paper can help you understand them better.
  4. Exercise regularly. Physical activity releases feel - good chemicals in your brain.
  5. Set boundaries for work - life balance. Know when to switch off from work.
  6. Focus on solutions, not problems. This shifts your mindset to a positive one.
  7. Practice gratitude. Remembering what's going well can boost your mood.
  8. Ask for help if you need it. Seeking support is a sign of strength, not weakness.
  9. Plan regular breaks during work hours; they refresh your mind and body.

Each of these steps offers a path towards managing emotions effectively at work, ensuring that both happiness and productivity are maintained.

Managing your own emotions

To manage your own emotions at work, it's key to be aware of how you feel. Paying attention to your feelings helps you understand them better. It's like being a detective of your own mind.

This can stop small issues from becoming big problems in the office. Talking about how you feel needs courage but also skill. Think before you speak and choose words that clearly say what’s going on inside.

Practising calmness is another smart move. Deep breaths, short walks, or even a few moments of silence can make a big difference... They help clear your head, so emotions don’t get in the way of making wise choices or saying things you might regret later.

The goal is simple: express yourself without letting emotions take full control - keeping conversations helpful and focused on solving problems rather than causing new ones.

The Impact of Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence makes talking easy. It helps us understand and share feelings at work.

Elevating communication skills

Talking about your feelings at work boosts communication skills. It makes team talks clear and straight to the point. Being open about emotions helps everyone understand each other better.

This way, working together gets easier.

Good communication is key for a happy workplace. By sharing feelings, you make sure small problems don't grow big. This builds trust and respect in the team. Better talking leads to better working together.

The difference between feelings and thoughts

Feelings are emotions we experience, like happiness or anger. Thoughts are ideas or opinions in our minds. We might think it's going to rain (that's a thought) and feel sad about it (that's a feeling).

At work, understanding this difference helps us talk about how we feel more clearly.

Knowing if we're talking about what we think or how we feel can make conversations easier. We might say "I think this task will take too long" instead of "I'm worried about finishing on time".

This lets others know exactly what's going on inside our heads and hearts.

Expressing emotions versus thoughts

Talking about your feelings at work helps create a space where everyone feels safe. It's different from just sharing what you think. Emotions show how we truly feel inside, while thoughts are more about our opinions or ideas on things.

By speaking out about how we feel, we make it easier for others to understand us better. This way, psychological safety grows in the workplace.

Expressing emotions rather than just thoughts builds deeper connections among team members. It opens doors to trust and support that wouldn't exist otherwise. Seeing someone talk openly about their feelings encourages others to do the same.

It makes a big difference in creating an environment where people can be themselves without fear of judgement or misunderstanding.

The importance of identifying and expressing emotions

Knowing and sharing feelings at work is key. It helps us understand ourselves better, making it easier to deal with challenges. Expressing emotions clears confusion and builds trust among team members.

Being open about feelings can improve how we connect with colleagues. It encourages a supportive work environment where everyone feels valued and understood. This openness leads to a stronger, more united team ready to tackle any task together.

Tips for Leaders on Dealing with Employee Emotions

Leaders must listen to their team's feelings with an open heart. They should create a space where everyone feels safe to share without fear.

Understand the impact of emotions on employee engagement

Emotions at work can really change how engaged employees feel. Happy and positive feelings can make them more involved and eager to do their job well. On the other hand, feeling upset or stressed can make it hard for them to focus and give their best.

To talk about your feelings at work helps because it lets others know where you stand emotionally. This sharing can lead to better support from coworkers and bosses, making the workplace a nicer spot for everyone.

So, talking about your feelings isn't just good for you - it's great for keeping everyone engaged and working well together.

Encourage open communication

Make sure you listen well and keep an open mind.

Having open talks helps solve problems faster. It also builds trust among the team. Leaders can show the way by sharing their own feelings sometimes. This makes it easier for others to do the same.

Always say thank you when someone shares with you, to show that their thoughts are valued.

Provide support and resources

Offering support and resources means giving employees the tools they need to talk about their feelings at work. This could be through training sessions on emotional intelligence or access to counselling services.

It's all about making sure people feel safe and understood. Workplaces can set up a system where staff can seek help without fear of judgement.

Creating a culture that values open communication is also key. Encouraging teams to share their thoughts in meetings or one-on-one chats helps everyone get comfortable talking about emotions.

Such practices make it easier for employees to express themselves, leading to a more supportive environment overall.

Next comes telling others how you feel. Do it clearly and with respect. Share why you feel this way and what could help make things better. This can make work a nicer place for everyone.

Understanding the difference between feelings and thoughts

Understanding the difference between feelings and thoughts is key to talking about your feelings at work. Feelings are what we sense in our hearts, like joy or sadness, while thoughts are what goes through our mind - ideas or opinions.

It's easy to mix them up, but knowing which is which helps you express yourself better.

Coping with Negative Emotions

Feeling anger, sadness, or frustration at work can happen to anyone. It's okay to feel this way. The key is finding healthy ways to manage these feelings. You might take quick breaks, talk to a friend, or write down your thoughts.

This helps you understand your emotions better and stops them from taking over your day.

Managing emotions this way keeps the workplace positive and supports everyone in doing their best.

Some people may not want to talk about their emotions at work

Talking about feelings at work can be hard for some. They worry people might judge them or see them as weak. Work is seen as a place for tasks, not for sharing how we feel. This makes it tough to open up when things get hard.

Different cultures and personal beliefs play a role too. In many places, keeping work and emotions separate is normal. People fear that talking about their feelings could hurt their career or relationships at work.

So, they choose to stay quiet and deal with emotions on their own.

They May Shift the conversation from feelings to thoughts

Some people find it hard to talk about their feelings at work. Instead, they might change the topic from how they feel to what they think. This can make it tricky to understand each other better and support one another.

If someone starts talking more about their thoughts than their feelings, it's a sign we need to be more open and create a space where everyone feels safe sharing.

Creating this open environment helps us all. It lets us express our feelings without fear at work. This way, we get better at solving problems together and supporting each other in tough times.
