As a leader, the more effectively you can self-regulate these reactions the better you can lead and help others. Recent research in the field of neuroscience offers insights into this process of self-regulation. This article outlines a five-step framework to follow:

  • Understanding: Know the biology behind stress reactions and accept them as normal.
  • Awareness: Notice the physical and emotional cues.
