Emotion, more than anything else, spells the difference between stellar and mediocre team performance. Fear, anger, frustration, and other negative feelings, can en danger a group's dynamic. But positive emotions have the power to transform it into a high-performance engine, where everyone operates at their peak. Their minds sharpen. They find creative solutions. They get great results.
Jackie Barretta, author of Primal Teams, published by AMACOM, wants you to know that emotions do belong at work. You want people who are positively emotional about a project they're working on and happy and motivated to do the work necessary. People think most creatively when they're in an optimal emotional state. However, emotions like fear and anger are primal emotions that take hold much faster than logic and reason.
