Your employees, managers and leaders can turn their emotional pain into perfomance gain with the TENOR Method™.
“One of the biggest benefits is stress management. Opposed to emotions being a source of stress to be avoided, now they are sources of wisdom. So you don’t have to be afraid of your emotions or feeling like they're going to get out of control, but instead, sit with them and actually encourage emotions to come forward, and then use them more effectively. It's a way of managing stress that people haven't had access to in the past.”
— Terry Hildebrandt, Ph.D., Leadership Development Consultant

"It isn't about managing your stress but relieving stress, and it will become second nature into how you handle solutions."
"Loved the visuals and the 6 strategies for gut-checking."
"Any time I'm aware of my reactivity, I can slow down, breathe, apply TENOR and be empowered within a few minutes. Priceless!"
"The biggest unlock for me was having a systematic approach to address difficult emotions with an ordered list of activities to reduce the tension."
"I found a good way to handle my emotions after essentially ignoring them for a while. I had no idea it was this important."
"I learned not to deny my emotions but rather to listen to them. Also that my reactions are created within myself, not someone else's "fault." And if I am feeling reluctant or procrastinating, I should examine why, not ignore the warning signal."
"My emotions aren't caused by other people or circumstances - I can instead look at my needs that aren't being met and problem solve."
"Naming emotions - even after you've resolved a need has value. It helps you to release tension, because you can resolve an issue and still have suppressed emotions."
"Scanning for emotions throughout the day, particularly as I move from meeting to meeting. Doing this can help prevent emotions from compounding and prevent me from bringing feelings from one meeting to the next."
