Neural pathways and emotional switches - changing these can enable us to learn, grow and innovate. There are eight core emotions that equip us to survive in a mostly hostile environment – which explains why the balance is so heavily tipped towards the negative.
In human evolution the best strategy for survival has been to avoid danger but this stands in the way of dealing with modern leadership challenges.
Human beings don’t learn and thrive if they don’t feel safe, however, when we experience one of the positive universal emotions things change and this has a profound impact on leadership.
