10 Ways to Practice Self-Compassion to Minimize Your Shame and Suffering 

10 Ways to Practice Self-Compassion to Minimize Your Shame and Suffering  | managing emotions at work | Scoop.it
“This is a moment of suffering. Suffering is part of life. May I be kind to myself in this moment. May I give myself the compassion I need.” ~Kristin Neff

I consider myself to be a very compassionate person, but I’ve struggled a great deal with self-compassion. Though I’ve now been sober for over six years, back when I was drinking I made a lot of mistakes, and it’s taken me a long time to have empathy and understanding for myself.

While drinking, I did and said a lot of things that made me feel ashamed and unhappy. When I drank, one of my go-to moves was giving into a sudden, intense desire to leave (or attempt to leave) a bar or party.

Emotional Agility


Via Don Dea
Jennifer Arnold-Levy's insight:

Effective leaders don’t buy into or try to suppress their inner experiences. Instead they approach them in a mindful, values-driven, and productive way—developing what we call emotional agility. In our complex, fast-changing knowledge economy, this ability to manage one’s thoughts and feelings is essential to business success. Numerous studies, from the University of London professor Frank Bond and others, show that emotional agility can help people alleviate stress, reduce errors, become more innovative, and improve job performance.

What Are Your Values?

This list is drawn from the Personal Values Card Sort (2001), developed by W.R. Miller, J. C’de Baca, D.B. Matthews, and P.L. Wilbourne, of the University of New Mexico. You can use it to quickly identify the values you hold that might inform a challenging situation at work. When you next make a decision, ask yourself whether it is consistent with these values.

How People Learn to Become Resilient

How People Learn to Become Resilient | managing emotions at work | Scoop.it

Perception is key to resilience: Do you conceptualize an event as traumatic, or as a chance to learn and grow?

Resilience presents a challenge for psychologists. Whether you can be said to have it or not largely depends not on any particular psychological test but on the way your life unfolds. If you are lucky enough to never experience any sort of adversity, we won’t know how resilient you are. It’s only when you’re faced with obstacles, stress, and other environmental threats that resilience, or the lack of it, emerges: Do you succumb or do you surmount?

4 signs you lack emotional intelligenceIn my 25 years as an executive coach, I have never had someone raise his hand and declare that he needs to work on his emotional intelligence. Yet I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard from people that the one thing their colleague needs to work on is emotional intelligence. This is the problem: those who most need to develop it are the ones who least realize it. The data showing that emotional intelligence is a key differentiator between star perfor

I was recently talking to a group about the fact that we can choose how we feel. “But didn’t you say emotions are an automatic biological response?”   Yes, in fact, I did… but don’t we have choice about our biology?

Jennifer Arnold-Levy's insight:

We are contributing to the creation of the conditions under which our biological systems function — and these have profound impacts on our “automatic” emotional reactions. This article points to some small actions we might take to better manage our natural response to threat that can undermine our effectiveness and that of others.
