Example text

So, for several thousand years at least,2 mankind has attempted to form societies, businesses, and families based on logic. We’ve made war on feelings, belittled those who show any emotion but anger, intimidated those who express them as weak and worthless, and dismissed them as “womanish” and irrational. One only has to read the headlines to see how well that system is working. Global economic collapse. ” Inconceivable environmental depredation. The old way of thinking is not working. And nowhere is this mindset more pervasive than the corporate culture.

They tell us what we like and don’t like. They tell us when we are living in concert with our values and when we are breaking them. At a neurobiological level, emotions are literally information and energy. The chemicals of emotion are messengers and they carry an electric charge; when we change emotional states we actually experience the energy of emotions. 4 For example, when confronted with a major challenge, most people experience some loss of energy and drive; then when they begin to find a solution the feelings change and they get excited and full of energy.

Emotions affect decision making, they affect how we engage and influence others, and they affect our own energy. In turn this changes how we are and what we accomplish as a leader and as a person. It’s as if we’re on raft being driven by a river. We can hang out on the raft and ignore the river and end up being tossed around. Or we can get our hands and feet wet and assert a great deal of influence on the way the raft moves. And yet, we have all experienced how emotions can escalate and then how we can make bad decisions when we’re highly emotional.
