Emotions’ Role in Business - The Business Case for Positivity

Emotions’ Role in Business

I was recently working with one of my San Francisco Bay Area executive coaching clients – the president of a mid-sized company. We discussed the benefit of positive emotions in the workplace.

My executive coaching client and I further discussed how positive emotions work to drive results. I am coaching my client on how company leaders can change the way people think and act to create a more positive culture and achieve better results.

The Business Case for Positivity

As neuroscience researchers study the brain and learn more about how we achieve optimal functioning, the term positivity has finally captured business leaders’ interests.
What researchers are discovering about positive emotions at work is essential knowledge for anyone who wants to lead individuals and organizations to high performance.

Emotions’ Role in Business

For businesses and organizations, emotions are functional. Both negative and positive emotions work to drive results. Negative emotions serve to limit our thoughts and behaviors, helping us to act more decisively in times of stress or crisis.

Positivity broadens your outlook, opens you to new solutions and ideas, and brings more possibilities into view. Positivity fosters vital human moments that go beyond optimism and a smiling face. It infuses your mindset and outlook, affects your heart rhythms and body chemistry, reduces muscle tension and improves relationships.

Are you working in a professional services firm or other organization where executive coaches provide leadership development to grow emotionally intelligent leaders? Does your organization provide executive coaching for leaders who encourage positivity? Enlightened leaders tap into their emotional intelligence and social intelligence skills to create a more positive work environment.

One of the most powerful questions you can ask yourself is “Can increasing positivity at work help our company grow and be more profitable?” Emotionally intelligent and socially intelligent organizations provide executive coaching as part of their peak performance leadership development program.

Working with a seasoned executive coach and leadership consultant trained in emotional intelligence and incorporating assessments such as the Bar-On EQ-I, CPI 260 and Denison Culture Survey can help you create a culture where all employees are more positive and fully engaged. You can become a leader who models emotional intelligence and social intelligence, and who inspires people to become fully engaged with the vision, mission and strategy of your company or law firm.
