Session: How much do emotions matter in the workplace?

The emotions people bring to work are as important as their cognitive skills. How else do you have truly engaged and high-performance teams? In my own experience as a leader, I have seen that individuals exert greater effort at work when they have higher emotional connection to the vision, strategy and organization.

In this session, I will articulate my experience about relationship between intensity of emotions and performance at a workplace.
