Mastering our moods is a critical resilience skill not just for leaders in driving employee engagement and performance, but also for their team.

International speaker and author on mental health in the workplace, Graeme Cowan, refers to a simple sliding scale the ?moodometer? that allows you to identify your mood and act where appropriate.
