Our states of mind are contagious. They impact our effectiveness and performance and create a ripple effect that—for better or worse—influences individuals, work teams, and entire organizations. With so much at stake, how can leaders and managers better understand and manage their own thinking and feelings in order to optimize their own and their teams’ impact and success?

Think of an important meeting when an upsetting exchange with someone negatively impacted your mood. If you had been able to shift your mood, how could you have been more impactful as a leader or manager that day? In this course, you will learn how to make these shifts in order to maximize your impact. You will participate in individual and group exercises that demonstrate how our thinking and feelings fluctuate, influence our worldview, and impact those around us. You will learn how to apply the Thinking Path, a tool that helps you to become more aware of and to change the thoughts and feelings that drive your states of mind, ultimately enabling you to achieve greater resilience, personal productivity, and positive team and organizational outcomes.

The tools and strategies you will learn will help you to recognize and manage your states of mind, ultimately equipping you to be a better leader, manager, and team member.
