Chapter 5: Leadership Mind and Emotion

Terms in this set (20)

Those who are more expressive of their own emotions and more in tune with the emotions of others make more money
-One reason for this is that leaders who harnessed indirect the power of emotions to improve followers satisfaction, morale, and motivation get better results and enhance overall organizational effectiveness

Emotions are contagious
The emotional state of the leader influences the entire team, the department, or organization
-Most of us recognize that we can "catch" emotions from others
(EX: If we are around someone who was smiling and enthusiastic, the positive emotions rub off on us. Conversely, someone in a bad mood, can bring us down)

The emotional contagion means that leaders who are able to maintain balance and keep themselves motivated can serve as positive role models to help motivate and inspire those around them

-The energy level of the entire organization increases when leaders are optimistic and hopeful rather than angry or depressed
-Leaders "tune in" into the emotional state of others, bring unhealthy or negative emotions to the surface, and encourage people to explore and use positive emotion in their every day work

Emotions influence performance
Emotions have a strong influence on performance
An entire organization in a bad mood can't succeed because people have no energy and feel anxious, disillusioned, or hopeless

-Positive emotions mean the decline of negative emotions such as sadness, anger, anxiety, fear
-Positive instead of negative emotions enable individuals to perform to the best of their abilities
