Make managing emotions intuitive and attainable
Most people misunderstand or feel overwhelmed by their emotions. They can feel like they are coming out of nowhere. Where do our feelings come from?
Emotions are a full-body experience, so managing them requires more than just controlling our thoughts. Understanding that our brain works in concert with our body to produce emotional responses gives you the real control you may be lacking.
I am known for my saying, "If you can make a sandwich—you can manage your emotions." I explain it and my approach for management in a video.Watch Now

Human Skills (aka Soft Skills) Will Soon Not Be Optional
Most of the Top 10 Skills of 2025 are considered "soft" skills, such as analytical thinking, complex problem-solving, leadership and social influence, creativity and resilience.
Critical thinking and problem-solving top the list of skills that employers believe will grow in prominence in the next five years. These have been consistent since the first report in 2016.
How is this related to our emotions? According to Stephen Fineman, author of Understanding Emotion at Work,
"Our feelings are crucial for prioritizing, sorting and filtering possibilities; otherwise we become paralyzed, or stuck in a perpetual loop. They guide us to what matters and what is relevant, not just to what makes sense...Without emotion something crucial is missing."
These non-technical skills require emotional awareness.
No Cost 20-Minute Focused Coaching Call

Hi, I’m Kim Korte
I work with individuals and organizations to take control of their emotions by understanding their mental, physical and socioemotional connections.
Emotion regulation involves a coherent relationship with the self, specifically, effective communication between the body, mind, and feelings.
Connections are important and key to the human experience. Additionally, it is my top personal value. This is why I hold live courses so I can connect with those I teach.

What's Different in My Approach?
I use the concept of cooking in my work to bring the theory of constructed emotions to life. We use the concepts of cooking to showcase how different "recipes" of experiences and minimal changes can lead to significantly different results.
This fun and entertaining learning method ensures engagement and active collaboration throughout the process.
The Resilience Recipe
Emotions don’t have to be mysterious and scary. Research tells us they are constructed in our brain, much like a recipe. In this course, you will learn how they are constructed and how you can work with your body to help you better regulate your emotions.
Becoming A Connected Leader/Manager
This course leverages the same content taught in the Resilience Recipe only geared towards people management skills with expanded materials. You will learn how to create stronger connections as a manager, facilitating better employee communication and development within a department, team, or company.
If group classes are not for you, this option is available. Schedule a consult to find out if we are the right fit for each other. This allows my framework to be directed to your personal or professional concerns.
Do you need a scholarship?
Money should never be a barrier when it comes to learning a skill so important as emotion regulation. For this reason, I offer full and partial scholarships for people who are willing to donate their time to volunteerism.Learn More/Apply

I took Kim's course and got so much out of it! Many things that help in day to day life as well as longer term strategies for personal growth. Kim keeps it real... everyone can relate to the subject matter in their your own lives. Well done Kim!
I loved Kim’s course. Over the four weeks, I looked forward to each week’s new topic and found that it was easy and helpful to apply in my day to day life. Living and working in New York City, the grind can catch up with you. I found that this class allowed me to work through many issues with clients and life situations with a different mind set. At the end of the day it helped me to feel calmer, happier and communicate better within relationships, whether client or personal. I highly recommend this class.
