  • By coincidence, we published at the same time two presentations on emotions. In my presentation 'Leveraged Emotional Marketing' I show that, regardless what you are marketing such as yourself , product, or service, emotions have a significant part to play.

  • Nice presentation but, you know, let's address where the bulk of emotions are in the workplace - the expression of anger primarily by men who are not routinely lectured about BEING emotional in the workplace because, frankly, it doesn't appear that most men think anger is an 'emotional' because they claim not to be 'emotional' nor to take work 'personally' and yet . . . as history teaches and the present confirms . . . KABOOM!!! Shock and Awe!!!!

  2. We all have emotions. Denying them doesnt make us better leaders.

  4. Why is emotional considered a "bad word" for women? We are capable of being strong and emotional. Emotion shows passion, which is a positive attribute in being successful in all that we as Deborah Geddis women do. Practice Manager at Banfield Pet Hospital©2013 LinkedIn Corporation.

  5. For me, emotions reveal whether thoughts are positive or negative. If I feel angry or fearful, Im probably harboring a negative thought about myself or another person. If my emotion is joyful and open, Gloria Chan and puts me in a place of seeing new opportunities, then I know myLife and Leadership Coach thoughts are positive. ©2013 LinkedIn Corporation.

  6. Maintaining a professional demeanor is especially important for women in management or leadership positions. Even expressing frustration can be construed as losing control.
