Emotional Responsibility

These two words have been a contradiction in the past. Those who carry resposibility, have to stick to rules  and decide factually correct. I have to admit, there are always clashes of interest, but this is something you have to cope with as a men of responsibility. This is normal business.

What skills should have somebody who is carrying responsibility?

The awareness of responsibility needs a decent mix of technical skills, an amount of experience and a solid level of physical and psychological stability. In many cases human lives  and integrity are dependent on this balance.

Human failure is not avoidable. Rules are to help to reduce those cases to a minimum.

Mental trainings have to help to develp the psychological fitness of peolple in responsibility. Parametric behaviour are to release a good disposition for resilience and apropriate actions und stress. The term psyche includes in this context always a mix of physical and emotional components.

Regulation by emotionality

The true engine behind our actions are are emotions, these temorary innermost moves who seem so often meaningless but nevertheless steer our decisions and actions.  Decisions (in opposite to conclusions) exclusively made emotionally. For a simple reason in their nature. They are capable of executing quicker and more information. They can also perceive factors outside the 5 human senses.  They can deliver a decision-basis by reduction and help, where simple material logic by complexity would take far too much time or reaches the limits by unknown facts.

Everything what we call the subconsience is working that way. No matter if you are working as an emergency doctor, paramedic, pilot, stewardess or in a different profession with tight timelines, you have to be able to completely rely on your emotional competence.

Emotional Leadership offers an education  for people in responsibility in various branches, to make their emotional competence becomming a relyable instrument of intervention and crisis-management. What we call

Emotional Responsibility

is at least a double skill:

  1. The sophisticated perception of the own emotions and their application
  2. The sophisticated perception and reaction on the emotionality of other people and peoplegroups in a certain environment.

Both targets are dependent on one another and may be educated to different levels of skill depending on the task-profile of the learner.

We are convinced that people, dedicating their lives for security and health of others, should have our full support. Emotional leadership may be a step to get there.
