Two half-day workshops will include networking and refreshments. Practical skills will be refined by feedback after a week of exploratory trialling in work and life settings.
This pair of half-day workshops aims to equip attendees with a mental framework of emotional dynamics and a transferable conversational skill to enhance performance at work and presence at home.
The Emotional Logic method uniquely informs practical solutions by identifying the personal values that drive emotional reactions to change, disappointments, setbacks and hurts, providing the understanding needed to harness and turn that emotional energy into an improved work-life blend. Improved performance leads to expected benefits for both organisation and individuals that include increased and sustainable productivity, reduced sickness and absence, improved workplace morale, staff retention and attraction of top talent, less retraining cost inefficiencies, and improved problem-solving within a ‘safe team work’ environment.
After these workshops, you will:
- be equipped with a mindset and the conversational skills to manage change, disappointments, setbacks and hurts constructively
- have discovered how the Emotional Logic tools enable you to learn the mental framework and share its adaptive insights with others
- value the conversational skills in leadership that can turn your own and other people’s unpleasant emotions into positive action
- know how to embed Emotional Logic into the ethos and practice of an organisation.
Practical learning outcomes - you will be able to:
- use the concept of ‘emotional Stepping Stones for adjustment’ to interpret the emotional tensions that may complicate situations
- name ‘hidden losses’ behind a disappointment or setback, and interpret these constructively as personal values
- recognise how groups function in chaos, complexity or simplicity, and use Emotional Logic language and tools to resolve chaotic situations into exploratory cooperation
- make a solution-focused, values-based action plan in a group situation that builds relationships while managing change.
These workshops are for people in, or aspiring to, leadership or HR roles in entrepreneurial enterprises of any size. They operationalise the modern neuroscience insights that have challenged more than two millennia of perceived stoic wisdom, by showing how emotion partnered with reason improves the quality of action-planning decisions in social settings.

We would appreciate it if you could please complete an online survey in advance (and after the course) called the Emotional Logic Development Profile (ELDP) – using this link: https://goo.gl/forms/yteWF7RtkTcSQYMx1
It takes only about seven minutes and your participation is voluntary. This profile will enable you and us to measure the impact of understanding your emotions differently on your ability to respond to changing situations. All of your responses are kept confidential.
Thank you very much for your time and cooperation (Dr Trevor Griffiths).
