Your teammate showed up late for work again this morning. The team is facing a tight deadline on a critical project. You lost it and things went downhill from there.

If this was your story, you got emotionally hijacked.

You need to come to this highly interactive workshop led by two of the top Austin consultants. 

Participants in the workshop will:
