build a high performing team
We all experience a wide range of positive and negative feelings at work as we interact with colleagues, supervisors, customers, suppliers, and others. These feelings impact our decisions, behaviors, and performance in powerful ways. Positive feelings have a ‘broaden and build’ effect, causing us to think more broadly, engage more deeply and perform better. Negative emotions tend to have a ‘narrow and limiting’ effect, causing us to be more closed-minded, less engaged, and weaker performers. Combined, these emotions impact the bottom line. In high performing organizations, people experience more positive emotions and less negative emotions than those in low performing organizations.
