About Emotional Awareness Training Sessions
Emotions are a fundamental part of being human and some can argue is a trait or attribute that makes us as human as we can be. They’re extremely powerful bundles of energy locked up in your head controlled by various factors from external stimuli to the hormones generated naturally within the human body. They can be used as powerful motivators and sources of energy that can allow people to perform their tasks and regular processes with more gusto, or hinder a person while performing certain tasks.
The workspace environment is a challenging place for the human mind. By its very nature it’s a high-stress environment with constant social interaction, heavy crunch moments from overbearing deadlines, constant and taxing labor; physically, mentally, or others, or being forced into a high stress environment for some unlucky professionals. This can cause immense strain on the human mind and as a result cause emotions to run high. While these in of themselves are no bad thing, the wear and tear of the workplace can sometimes cause trouble when a fault occurs or a slight is dropped and suddenly your emotions take over and make you say things you’ll come to regret later.
At Paramount Training and Development we understand that these are the consequences of the regular working environment, and while no easy solution can be given to completely solve the problem, there are ways to alleviate the issue. To this end, we’ve developed an Emotional Awareness Training module with the intent of assisting participants with learning, understanding, and expressing their emotions, and more.
Emotions consist of anything from joy to disgust to anger to worry. None of these are inherently good or bad and are only made into positive or negative through the actions of the person or persons currently affected by these emotions. In most social settings, including the workplace, certain ways of expressing these are more acceptable than others as these can be made into something productive or negative. Improper control and/or expression of these emotions can have adverse or downright negative effects in the social setting and overall in work. To this end, Paramount Training and Development developed this Emotion Awareness Training module to help participants further their understanding of emotion, how to control it, how to see these emotions as they manifest in their peers, and understand just how huge the role of emotion is not only in the workplace, but in life as a whole.
Gain insights into emotion
Emotion is a term that covers several feelings and can be influenced by many factors. It’s a difficult thing to outright define, let alone understand, as it encompasses many concepts under different fields of study with their own small and large intricacies that would take a lengthy period of time to study in their entirety. Emotional Awareness training is not that, but it will teach participants the core fundamentals of emotion and have a satisfactory and serviceable grasp on its concepts via tried and proven methods and/or experimental procedures derived from intensive research and study in the relevant fields.
Gain emotional self-awareness and self-control
While emotions are by nature are difficult to control, in most social settings – including the workplace – a degree of control needs to be practiced and perfected to avoid performing actions that can stifle, stall, or otherwise disrupt the workplace and its operation, and at the same time find a healthy outlet to release these emotions in a health and acceptable fashion in or out of the workplace. Emotional Awareness training offers participants the opportunity to experiment with and utilize strategies for high stress environments which will allow them to maintain their composure despite of these external factors, while also giving them the lessons and methods they need to properly express these withheld emotions and avoid unpleasant interactions to happen in the workplace and beyond.
Empathise with and see emotions in others
While it may be difficult to understand one’s own emotions, it may be slightly easier to see emotions in others. As anything from body language, tone of voice, posture, mannerisms, even eye contact, can be clear indicators of someone in emotional duress. The Emotional Awareness Training module was designed not only for participants seeking help for themselves but also for others; especially as are participants are expected to return to the working environment once the sessions are over. As such offers coursework and lessons on recognising indicators of emotional duress in others and contingency plans for when they need to confront and negotiate with these individuals.
Learn emotional etiquette in the workplace and other social situations
The workplace – just like any other social environment – has its own set of unwritten rules and laws that anyone and everyone working within its boundaries needs to abide by and conform to be socially acceptable. While some may find this odd unwritten social contract simple to work around, this is not necessarily universal. That’s why in Emotional Awareness Training our highly trained and qualified staff come in to teach participants about these obfuscated rules in the workplace and methods and strategies to keep themselves and their emotions under control even in a high-stress environment.
Undertake behaviour, decision-making, and consequence training
There are reasons why decisions made in states of emotional duress are frowned upon, and why certain behaviours are discouraged within the context of the workplace or even in social settings in general. Some individuals are informed of and well aware of these quirks and situations, while others are not as informed and may fault and commit social faux pas. Emotions are incredibly potent and can overtake one’s rational and thinking mind for long enough to perform an act or make a decision that will only have dire consequences in future, no matter how long it may actually take. To that end, part of Emotional Awareness training is centred on the analysis of certain behaviours and their effect on social settings. This, as well as give examples to participants about how emotion can play a powerful role in decision making, and how emotional duress can adversely affect one’s ability to make decisions, and what such emotionally charged choices can do in the long term.
