The Beat podcast is designed for healthcare professionals only and is brought to you by Nutricia. In this mini-series in partnership with Feel Good, the experts in the psychology of people, join their specialists from the fields of nutrition, psychology, mental health, mindfulness, sleep and movement in these 20 minute ‘powershot’ podcasts to encourage you to learn on the move. In this episode we take a look at what emotional agility is and why it is important in today’s world.
We all make plans, we have goals and dreams. We create targets and aim forward with full steam. But, even when we have the best intentions and carefully scripted action plans, stress, anxiety, pressure often still make their way in. No amount of planning can stop the unexpected from happening. We don’t know what will come to shake our ground.
Good or bad, change is imminent, and it is emotional. We can rationalise our way through change and unexpected obstacles, but we often cannot control how our physical and emotional bodies react. This is where emotional agility lies.
In this episode, joining us is Danni Haig. Danni is an organisational psychologist and coach, working with senior leaders and CEO’s on a constant basis to help them in managing not just their minds, but their emotions when things don’t go to plan. On top of that, she works with different teams in organisations, to help them develop better emotional agility in their day to day interactions, with their colleagues, their personal relationships, and when the unexpected happens.
