Emotions in Check and Problem Solved!

Emotions can cause as many problems as they can solve. They are vital processes not only for survival but also for success. They can provide with guidance and information but they can as easily mislead and confuse.

No goal achievement strategy makes sense and no problem-solving method sticks unless the role of our emotions is understood and their power is harnessed to our advantage.

The very strong connection between the rational and emotional parts of the brain makes the connection between thinking and feeling the most important factor in goal achievement. A good relationship between the two means more clarity, more motivation, more determination, and more effectiveness.

This 2-part interactive workshop first introduces you to emotion engineering, one of the most fundamental functions of the human brain. Next, it introduces you to one of the most widely used problem-solving methods, the most vital life skill you need.
