How can Moodmetric help an ambitious achiever?

Are you, or would you like to be a high achiever? Do you have the emotional power to handle it?

Some high achievers are always in pursuit of perfection. They are driven by an inner voice that is never content with their achievements. No matter how good are the accomplishments looking from outside, in the inside the person never feels good enough. There would always be room to improve, and more to do. Self-criticism is at maximum. Showing weakness is not an option. The pursuit of perfection is emotionally consuming. The tiredness is sometimes overwhelming, worsened by the disappointment in self, and others.

People in healthier pursuit of excellence are high achievers, whose inner voice is their genuine self. They have a  strong desire to accomplish something important, and gain gratification from success in demanding tasks. Their approach to good achievements contains more empathy, towards themselves and people around them.

They are self-assured but not self-centric. They are able to ask advice when needed, and understand the power of working together. Still, achieving much is a tough task and sometimes they can be on the edge emotionally.

The both types have one problem in common – how to tell when too much stress is going to make the path of productivity too rough?

Moodmetric services are aimed at high performing individuals, who want to optimize the use of their emotional capacity. Persons demanding a lot from themselves want to know where their personal limits are. How much more can I do and achieve, before the stress turns against me? The Moodmetric ring is a simple tool to measure long term data about how emotional load is affecting the wearers’ sympathetic nervous system. The trends are visible in a simple to read index, which shows the emotional load day-to-day.

The Moodmetric app also includes real-time follow-up on stress levels. This gives an instant view to reactions and stress amount during the day. A simple guidance teaches the wearers to understand their data in the daily context.
Moodmetric helps the wearer to understand the emotional boundaries. The Moodmetric ring and app are a very special and personal tool in building the optimal performance.

Can I benefit of measuring emotions at work?

In November I was in and event to speak about emotions at work, and how uncontrolled behavior is no longer tolerated at workplace. The cost of abusive supervision – that is bad bosses – is about $23,5 billion annually for US enterprises. Companies are now looking for people that are emotionally balanced, people that are aware of themselves and understand how it would feel to be in the shoes of someone else.

A few weeks after that event, I heard that two of my friends have been yelled at by their superiors. Both are academic people with significant achievement in their respective organisations, and had never faced anything like that. They were among other things loudly blamed for things they could not affect, after the bosses had to face unpleasant consequences of their own decisions. Things had quickly come so far, that both of them were planning to quit their jobs.

People behaving badly are a burden. Their mood affects others and it is never anything positive. Many of the issues at workplace, especially stress and depression, are partly deriving from unacceptable behavior by a colleague or a supervisor. Bad bosses soon find their best people gone, as they are the ones having options elsewhere.

Self-awareness  is the first step in growing emotional intelligence. How do I feel, how do I behave, what evokes emotions in me? Learning to calm down in a hectic situation, and seeing the people behind the matters in hand are valuable tools for a manager. Sometimes things are just very difficult at work and unexpected things happen. Loosing self-control makes the chaos worse, and suddenly no-one works for the common good. A simple “Could we discuss this?” is often the best problem solving tool.

We are made of carbon, water and emotions. Emotions play a huge role in our private, but also business lives. Emotions at work can again heavily affect our private lives, possibly bringing and extra burden to our free time.

The Moodmetric ring is designed to help you to become more self-aware. Simply by wearing the ring you can measure what makes you react, what makes you feel intensely. A great benefit is to clearly see what makes you calm you mind. If you have sometimes trouble in controlling your emotions, you can learn what is the best way to be a master of the situation.

The Moodmetric ring also measures meditation and mindfulness exercises. You will get a score of your calming break and see how it affects the rest of your working day.
