Emotional Fitness & Supporting Organizations

Are you looking to improve or develop your team or organization in the following areas: Stress, Absenteeism, Coaching, Recruitment and Retention, Strategic Management, Goal Setting, Networking, Resilience, Restructuring/ HR Transformation, Change Management, Employee Engagement, Mental Health, Conflict Management, Communication & Listening, Culture or other areas of concern.

There’s been a fair bit of research done on EQ (Emotional Quotient) and the great benefits associated with incorporating EQ into organizational development including the resources of Emotional Intelligence.

How about leveraging another very important part of EQ, namely Emotional Fitness?

The world of work has traditionally been seen as a world in which the dominant and most valued skills are mental and physical. They are the ‘hard skills’ of thinking and fixing, buying and selling, talking and making. Today, there is a growing awareness and understanding that our emotional skills or EQ are what make the difference between success and mediocrity. These are ‘soft skills. Here’s the problem. The soft skills are really the hard ones.

The development of coaching as a recognized profession and skill set has largely been an acknowledgment that it is difficult, without help, to deal with the things that block us from making progress, or leave us feeling frustrated and stuck, or unclear how to handle conflict or anger.

Emotional Fitness Coaching offers a unique set of tools designed for leaders who desire to hone their coaching and mentoring skills, or for coaches who work externally, wishing to do the same. The tools of Emotional Fitness have been developed over a period of nearly forty years by the Founder of Emotional Fitness Warren Redman.

The tools of Emotional Fitness work, are simple, and above all, they all acknowledge the individual’s ability to make their own best choices and be accountable for them.

There are five primary E-Fitness coaching tools. The first is Power Listening, in which you will discover the two things that prevent effective listening from taking place and the five stages of listening that make it work. The second is Learning from Experience, describing a system that encourages staff at all levels to consider and learn from what goes on in the organization. The third is Group Dialogue; a method of running meetings that transforms them from time-wasting and costly sessions into creative opportunities for significant change. The fourth is the Work scale, a questionnaire like no other that allows people to see their levels of satisfaction and frustration and provides them with the tools to make the desired changes. The fifth and final E-Fitness tool is Storytelling. The telling of stories in E-Fitness coaching is a refreshing and creative way for people to discover important things about the way they see things, including themselves and each other.

All of the E-Fitness coaching tools used in the hands of a competent E-Fitness coach, or leader who develops the skills, will improve communication, raise people’s level of motivation and loyalty, decrease stress, along with absenteeism and errors, and have a significant impact on the productivity, health, and profitability of your company.

I feel very blessed to have been invited to facilitate a 2nd keynote during the last 2 weeks.

The success of the keynotes would not have been possible without the generous support of others.

I would like to offer the following points for consideration in the event that you have an upcoming message to share:

1. Collaborate with the person who invited you to do the keynote & collectively work together to put the keynote together 💑

2. Be vulnerable, share your personal story in the introduction 🎤

3. Share stories about the audience, great way to recognize the amazing things your audience is doing 📖

4. Use the elements of humour & surprise. I used the acronym POT (Purpose-Opportunity-Time)

5. Engage the audience, have them participate. I used “But Wait” with the audience replying “There’s More” ⏰

6. Always make it about the audience.

I would like to thank my mentor Joe Grondin, Lisa Smith from Eastern College, Younes Bouida from Soccer NB as well as fellow Toastmasters for the opportunity to learn & grow as a speaker. ⚽

Get out and share your stories-gifts, the world is waiting to hear them. 🎁

Delightful News – Senator Hartling

Delightful News – Senator Hartling

The most delightful news this week was the announcement of Nancy Hartling’s appointment to the Senate. To those of us who know Nancy, this won’t come as a surprise since we know that nobody is more worthy and deserving of this honor. Nancy will certainly bring a breath of much needed fresh air into one of the democratic world’s greatest institutions.

My delight is more specific. I first met Nancy when she signed up for an Emotional Fitness Coach Training course – the first (and only) one I taught in New Brunswick. At the same time, I discovered that Nancy had imported the “Be a Great Dad” program I had developed in Calgary, so we had a connection even before we met.

So now Canada has a Senator who is a trained Emotional Fitness Coach. Imagine how that can change the way decision-makers communicate! When the leaders of our, and every country, can share the tools of Emotional Fitness, we shall be well on our way to world peace.

Well done, Senator Nancy, and we wish you the greatest of success and fulfillment in your new position.
