Have you ever found yourself getting frustrated – maybe even a bit angry – with no effective way to get your emotions back on an even keel? Whether you are a staff member dealing with patrons and volunteers or a volunteer dealing with staff members and patrons, the people we interact with in our library environments can sometimes trigger emotions that don’t always serve us well. In this fast-paced 60-minute webinar, we’ll look at why we travel that path to begin with – and how we can put the brakes on before our anger gets the best of us – or someone else. We’ll discuss how we can use emotional intelligence to stay cool, calm, and collected, allowing us to take a step back to reassess what’s really going on in a difficult situation.
