  • Stress Management Through Mindfulness and Reframing: In situations with high stress, a blend of emotion-focused and problem-focused coping is recommended.

    1. How to apply in future leadership roles : As a very stressed person, this a critical point to me. I have already been practicing meditation every day for a year or so, and it has been very helpful during my last internships when stress levels were often high as I had to deal with complex and urgent tasks. I will try my best to continue this practice in my future job, especially as a leader to better adapt to unpredictability and to avoid sharing my stress to my team members.
    2. Please provide another example.
  • Emotional Intelligence: Emotional intelligence is crucial for effective leadership. It encompasses self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. Practicing emotional intelligence helps leaders understand others’ emotions, manage relationships, and collaborate effectively .
    1. Please provide examples on how I could apply this as a leader. Be precise.
