A simple tool that's effective when you feel you're being affected by other people.

Everyone catches emotion from other people. There's a name for it. It's called 'emotional contagion' and it's due to a circuit in the brain called the 'Mirror Neuron System' (MNS). It causes us to unconsciously mirror the emotional states of people we interact with.

This simple technique will help you deflect negative emotion away so subtly that no one will even notice you're doing it.

Learning how emotional contagion works and how to block it helps give you a sense of power. You can put it into practice right away - when you're in conversation, in a meeting, in a group setting, among family, around work colleagues, even in a one-to-one setting. The course also shows you how to then quickly create the way you want to feel.
