Is Withholding Emotion Bad for Business?
Often in the workplace, we’re urged to conceal our emotions—to “keep it professional” by limiting how much of ourselves we share with others. But our job as leaders is to encourage the opposite. Not only should you get emotional with those you lead, you have to be OK with your team bringing their emotions to the workplace as well.
In a new Leadercast NOW video, author and consultant Lisa McLeod explains why emotion in the workplace is beneficial to an organization. “The reality is if you want to have a really successful business, you’ve got to get emotional. Logic makes you think. Emotion makes you act,” says Lisa.
Are you encouraging your team to be who they are, to feel how they feel and to unabashedly share their emotions? Watch the video to learn more from Lisa about how you can embrace emotions without accepting drama in your organization.
