I have never counted on someone to take care of my emotions for me.
~ Mary Mihalic
“Emotion“: a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one’s circumstances, mood, or relationships with others.
Like it or not, fact or fiction, we have relationships with those that we work with. They may be “good”, bad or indifferent. The goal in the workplace should be to come together for the common good of the customer or client, and those that we work with and produce a value. This may or may not happen. Our control and use of emotions play a contributing part of the behavior we exhibit during our workplace.
Having self-control, creating a responsibility for emotional maturity – at least in our working lives, can positively impact the businesses that we create, run or support.
