In this fifth episode of Managing from the Middle: Leading Through Change 6-part podcast series, we address the challenges leaders face with managing their own emotions during change. Guests share best practices for strengthening emotional intelligence, building resilience and role-modeling while leading a group through a change. Joining the conversation are Micala Dempcy with Lexington Regional Health Center in Nebraska, and Rhonda Barcus and Shannon Studden with the National Rural Health Resource Center.

"Managing my own emotions helps me stay professional and relevant with my staff; I don’t hide them by any means, but I acknowledge them and I’m honest with them."
