… you have trouble managing your emotions and keeping cool when …

1. Dealing with challenging clients
2. Receiving unwelcome criticism from others
3. Failing to do what you said you’d do and follow through


Come and join us on Tuesday evening, April 9, 2019 and learn from Dorothea Hendriks how to handle your emotions and keep your cool in times of stress.

As entrepreneurs, most of us face some kind of daily stress in our work whether it’s dealing with upset clients, handling unwelcomed feedback or being disappointed in ourselves because of what we think we have or have not accomplished.

How skilled we are at managing our emotions, maintaining our composure and keeping our cool links directly to how successful and effective we will be in both our work and in our relationships.

In this workshop we look at what we need to do in order to control our emotions instead of having them control us.


• Tips for eliminating self-defeating behaviour and building better habits
• 5 easy steps to help us remain calm and focused in emotionally charged situations
• Learn how we emotional hijack ourselves and what we can do about it
