Expanding your awareness of how emotions trigger you to react to situations and people, helps you to better manage and respond intentionally to get the outcome you want.
Have you ever seen someone spiral out of control and lose peer respect due to worry, anxiety and self-doubt? They will generally try to swallow and hide these feelings from others, especially if they have been given feedback that colleagues don't appreciate them. It's kind of like dulling the colors of a rainbow and life starts to look more and more gray-ish. Some put on a brave, stoic face at work, so you never know who they really are or what they are capable of. Perhaps you have experienced this too.
Life is better when you can see and manage your emotions in full color. Not only do you start to acknowledge how you truly feel, but it gives the people around you the permission to be authentic too. This is a great pathway for trust, which is foundational to all relationships - business and personal. When you can be empathetic and connect with something in yourself to understand people more deeply, your connections are stronger and more meaningful.
