leaders: emotional intelligence
do leaders experience emotions?
some would say that leaders are required to have little or no emotions so that they can react to situations and make decisions quicker with-out the need to consider how they feel about a situation, so that they may make quicker decisions that could, effectively, change the outcome of a decision to the point of saving lives.
some would say having little or no emotions is cold-hearted, but it has been getting us by in the world so far, albeit some would say emotions are required for everyone, but the leaders of our world would either not be aware they have little or no emotions, or be aware of it and deny that functional part of their mind.
on the other side, it is almost impossible to say what the world would be like if everyone was in touch with their emotions.
would it be riskier to put someone in charge who is highly emotionally charged?
do leaders have time-out where they explore their emotions? should they?
