What Role Do Emotions Play In The Workplace?

 In Business Psychology, Emotions, Energetic Solution

“Check your emotions at the door,” is a common piece of advice in many offices around the world.

When you step through the office doors, there is a silent expectation that you will leave your personal woes behind and slip on your office persona.

This includes leaving emotions behind to adopt a more rational and logical frame of mind.

The problem with this expectation is that organizations are ’emotional arenas.’ They fuel your emotions and shape your decisions based on how and what you feel about your role in the company.

Can you express yourself at work?

Organizations Cannot Block Emotions

Humans cannot separate their calculating decisions from their intuition. So emotions shape organizational behaviors.

Emotions and feelings act as a catalyst for rational thought processes. They work in conjunction to make sense out of both complex and simple situations.

Combine Hard And Soft Skills At Work

Herb Kelleher, the CEO of Southwest Airlines showed us the importance of bringing your personality to the workplace. Instead of trying to manage people’s emotions at the workplace, he encouraged them to bring humor and play to work. In other words, he harnessed the power of emotions to tap into their full potential.

It is impossible to avoid negative emotions at work. The best leaders allow their employees to vent their frustrations and then channel them in a positive direction.

Negative emotions are a signal that something is not right. Allowing them to surface through open communication will lead to resolving conflict in the workplace.
