The ability to manage your emotions and remain calm under pressure has a direct link to your performance. TalentSmart has conducted research with more than a million people, and we’ve found that 90% of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions in times of stress in order to remain calm and in control. The tricky thing about stress (and the anxiety that comes with it) is that it’s an absolutely necessary emotion. Our brains are wired such that it’s difficult to take action until we feel at least some level of this emotional state. In fact, performance peaks under the heightened activation that comes with moderate levels of stress. As long as the stress isn’t prolonged, it’s harmless. Join us to learn ways to stay calm and increase your chances of securing employment, retaining employment or being promoted.

 Job Opportunities Will Be Distributed
 Information On Training Programs Will Be Available
 Networking
 Professional Development

No appointment or RSVP needed, just show up prepared to learn and communicate.
