“Change occurs with a new emotional experience.” – Franz Alexander
One of the things I observed working with individuals, teams, and organizations is that change occurs when people are emotionally connected with each other.
We are human bonding mammals. We are wired for connection. When we become disconnected, our emotional signals get distorted and we can easily misunderstand each other. By creating a new emotional experience through the Emotional Connection (EmC) process, you have a clear roadmap to reconnect people in a systematic and scientific way.
If you are looking to create a positive change on your team, now is the time to make emotional connection a top priority.
If you are unsure as to exactly why or how emotional connection matters, please read on.
Five Reasons to get an EmC certification
1. Now is the time.
Currently, EmC is the only approach to positive team dynamics that is based on the new science of emotional connection and adult bonding. It’s about 30 years old and the EmC strategy offers a tried and true “map” to create a more cohesive and collaborative work culture.
Now is the time to be an early adopter of this new approach to company culture and positive team dynamics.
2. People want safe and secure bonds.
More and more companies are beginning to understand how important relationship bonds are to better performance. Our need for emotional connection is, as a matter of fact, our most basic longing, the most basic motivator humans have. When we can’t find a safe way to stay connected, we either move into attack or withdraw, feeling stuck and unproductive. That behavior can have a very real negative impact on team communication and productivity.
EmC certification provides a framework to lead the team from disconnection into a secure bond, laying the foundation for higher engagement and performance.
3. Disconnections are bad.
If you are experiencing a disconnection at work, you know how it can diminish your creativity and the ability to perform. It can leave you feeling cut off from wanting to engage with your co-workers and disengage with your work. You may be feeling isolated and alone. These feelings can cause brain function to weaken, cognition to slow down, productivity decreases, and impact your well-being.
As a Certified EmC leader, you will have the training and experience you need to stop disconnections in your team.
4. Set yourself apart from the competition.
When you are emotionally connected, you are more resilient to stress. You are stronger as a person. You are less likely to get anxious and depressed. You learn faster. You start to pay more attention to the topics and be focused and engaged. You become a more effective professional and a healthier human being.
Achieving an EmC certification will not only boost your confidence but very likely be the key to creating a more successful career for yourself.
5. Increase your expertise.
The EmC certification is a stamp of approval. That means that you know how to navigate through emotions and get a team back on track. We stand behind our certification programs because the knowledge, skills, and techniques you will learn have been proven by science to work! Pursuing an EmC certification shows others that you continue to grow in your professional development. When you have a situation where people have lost their focus or motivation, or are entrenched in conflict, you will know how to address it in the most effective way possible.
Having the roadmap of the EmC process will help you to navigate through the wave of emotions and keep moving the team forward.
