Self Management builds off of your self-awareness. By understanding your emotions and response triggers you can take a more active role in how you will respond when you are in the middle of those types of situations.
A major benefit of developing this skill to a high level is to have the ability to put the breaks on emotions as they intensify to a point where they are hijacked. You then have a much higher likelihood of having cloudy judgement through impaired thought processes and speaking out or taking an action that could hurt your relationships or negatively impact business performance.
- Ask yourself if your known triggers are being activated
- Take slow, deeper breathes as the situation is unfolding
- Use empathy to see alternate views for what is occurring and how others feel
