Powerful, positive emotions spur winning business teams and turbocharge performance, while negative emotions destroy camaraderie and effectiveness. So reports “primal emotions” guru Jackie Barretta, who bases her work-team optimum performance program on research in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and quantum physics. Barretta’s theories on creating an emotionally energized business environment seem like straightforward common sense, but her suggestions for company game playing and sing-alongs might seem incompatible with today’s hectic workplaces. Nevertheless, Barretta’s concepts and suggestions are valid and sound. getAbstract recommends her approach to team managers seeking to galvanize their staff to achieve peak productivity.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why “heartfelt emotion” is uniquely powerful within teams,
- How creativity and coherence affect business,
- How to use the “stop-breathe-activate” process,
- How your emotions inspire similar feelings in others, and
- How intuition influences decision making.
