Inspiring Thoughts from EAC

Just Breathe

Our webinar this month was entitled: How to Work  with People You Can’t Stand. One of the resources recommended is a book by Dr. Rick Brinkman and Rick Kirschner.  Their book describes 10 types of difficult people and ways to effectively deal with them. In describing a variety of situations, the authors often suggest a great way to calm our own emotion associated with the difficult person.  They suggest deep breathing.   By bringing our focus internally and on our breath, we can create a sense of calmness. When our mind is calm, we can problem solve.  It is a simple step, yet it requires practice.  So here’s my invitation for this week – practice this technique several times a day so you are prepared when the encounter takes place. Just breathe. Let me know what happens.
