Emotional Leadership – the unusual concept part II


Circle of Emotions©

The core of the concept is called „Circle of Emotions©“ (abbr. CoE). The term CoE has 2 meanings:

  1. A scheme which is used in training and coaching, the physical „Circle of Emotions©“.
  2. The fulfillment of emotional competence in a person, the inner CoE.

The CoE is based on th seven basic emotions according to Paul Ekman – joy, anger, fear, sadness, disgust, contempt and surprise, which have been developed in a few points in dependence of language and region. (surprise has become amazement f.e.)

With the CoE it is now possible, to transfer the dizzy emotional cloud into an easy understandable and clear map. It helps you tremendously, to analyse and look through any situation you are in. Starting with this transparency, we train our participants, to produce every emotion on different states. This basic experience is the door-opener for a consequent development of the probably most personal resource – your own emotions.

Emotions in daily business operations

Emotions in business are not basically new. Concepts like empathy, emotional competence non-violent communication and resilience are quite known in the meanwhile. Very often we try to get to the empatic feeling of our opponent, percept and understand them. In these concepts, emotionality plays a merely passive roll. We try to reduce the impact on the situation and try to balance the situation. Outbreaks of emotionalty show giant powers, which disable communicating partners, to predict the actions of this person and to react consciously. Almost never you will hear someone encouraging you, to use thorn or fear, to balance the situation.

The powers of emotions should lead you to respect, but never to discomfort. It costs enormous power to suppress emotions. To consciously live emotions is generating power. To train your emotions means, to use your own powers in the most effective way.
