The ROI of EQ: Fight, flight, freeze and alarmed aloneness: How to understand psychological states to better manage your employees

In today’s conversation on the ROI of EQ, Sarah and I discuss a newfound psychological state: Alarmed aloneness. Together, we unpack the neurochemical responses associated with fight, flight, and freeze and explore the uncharted waters of alarmed aloneness. Sarah describes the effects of Western culture on normalized emotions and how alarmed aloneness has never been more prevalent as the country battles COVID-19. Throughout the discussion, we describe how leaders and employees can identify and evaluate different neural responses and learn to regulate their emotions in a more empathetic, collaborative way.
