In our society, which includes the business world, when most people think of emotions, they tend to consider them as a liability. In other words, conveying emotions is a barrier to personal and business success.
Whether it is a social, business, or intimate setting, our emotions play a big part in how we interpret and react to an event. When we communicate, how we feel and how we interpret what others are feeling, play a key role in how we interpret the messages received and we respond to the messages.
Each one of us is connected to our emotions. Our feelings are a reaction to an influence that contacts our own unique nature and results in a specific action or behavior.
