The ups and downs of squiggly careers can take their toll and affect how we respond to challenging situations. Emotional agility is the skill of being able to manage our emotions at work so that they help us rather than hinder us. It's not about being robotic and having no emotions, instead it means being aware rather than acting on auto-pilot. As Victor Frankl said "Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom."

This week, Helen and Sarah talk about how to create the space to manage and choose your emotional response. They talk about the role of values and draw on the insights from Susan David's work.
