Do you know horses are the only non-human mammals, who understand our emotions next to us? They can recognize, analyze, remember and respond to our emotions as we do with our near and dear ones. Some psychologists, in their experiments, proved horses could recognize a human’s mood from their facial expressions. They can also find the difference between anger and happiness. Isn’t it quite amazing, we found someone, who at least understands our emotions? So, the next time, your lover doesn’t respond to your emotion, as you want her to, step ahead to your horse, it will hug you tight with the same affection you want.
Ask yourself, before judging others do you read their emotions? Can you read their sadness behind their smiling faces? How do you react when one of your teammates demands something with emotions? How do you restrain your emotions when you make tough decisions?
Emotions are the most valuable thing in our life. Before considering your squad as teammates or employees, consider them as human beings. Every human being is full of emotions. If you hurt someone’s emotion, it is the biggest wound you have given. Intentionally or deliberately, we sometimes hurt their feelings by not doing as per their expectations. It’s OK to hurt sometimes if the reason is genuine.
A leader plays many roles for his team. Sometimes he has to protect like an elder brother, guide like a father, and love like a best friend. To deliver all of the above responsibilities, we need to understand their emotions. If you cannot read their emotions, you can’t reach their heart.
Teammates always try to create an emotional bond with their team leader. Knowingly or unknowingly, in some organizations, they create an emotional bond too. Apart from confident, daring, strong, passionate, and motivated and all those good qualities you need to be emotional too. They want their leader to understand their feelings and value them. They may speak yes in front of you but deep inside their emotions are something different. You must read the emotions of your squad to understand their emotional goal. Apart from the organizational goal, focus on their mental and emotional needs too. Once you start caring about their mental status, they are emotionally connected with you. Now, they can and do anything for you. Even they will be ready to go the extra mile if it will bring a smile to your face. So, after reading this book, start reading their emotions.
