In the Chaos, Stick with EQ and Accountability

This On-Demand event was originally presented on January 6, 2021 (60 min)


As we go through the motions of a typical day, it’s clear that there’s a little devil on our shoulder. Everything has shifted, even if just slightly. The world is the same and completely different. We’re working at our office but often at home. Some are hiding alone at coffee shops with groups of people socially distanced. Our checklist to get out of the house, get groceries, get to church, or drop off kids has changed. It seems we are doing many of the things we have always done, but it still feels undone. Anxious feelings of fear and chaos are always there, even while pretending that everything is OK.

Two things can help us in these times: emotional intelligence (often called EQ) and accountability. We still need to get work done, collaborate with friends at work, and take care of ourselves and families regardless of the disturbing times. In this session, you will learn how to manage chaos by engaging your emotions and accountability.

During this interactive webinar, you will learn how to NOTICE and CHOOSE your emotions. Emotions act as a muscle in your body. You have the power to make the muscle stronger or weaker. Lou Russell will teach you about SELF-AWARENESS, SELF-REGULATION, MOTIVATION, SOCIAL AWARENESS, and SOCIAL REGULATION. You will receive a free EQ assessment from Lou to help you understand where your EQ is now and where it could be, which includes more than fifty little EQ projects you can use to grow your EQ.

Being accountable is difficult when you’re feeling undone. Have you noticed that at the beginning of quarantine, people were very productive, but now they are tired and not accountable? Whether a family or a business, you must use your emotions to drive accountability at work, with teams, and with your family. Boundaries are critical in the unknown. During the webinar, you’ll see the magic of putting EQ and accountability together.

Join author, EQ, and project management expert Lou Russell for an hour-long session that can help anyone in your organization to get started and stay on track. She’ll discuss how you can combine EQ and Accountability to get your life back, address common EQ stumbling blocks, and offer a practical formula for project success.

Attendees will learn

  • How EQ is a muscle you can grow.
  • The three first steps of being accountable.
  • How positive EQ and accountability drive responsibility.
  • How to begin and end projects: define, plan, manage and review.
  • 50+ tiny EQ projects to grow positive emotions.
