It’s time to bust the myth about what makes a strong leader. Can leaders really show their emotions without appearing weak in the workplace? According to guest Carolyn Stern, author of The Emotionally Strong Leader, when leaders learn to make friends with their emotions and communicate their feelings clearly, they set the stage for real transformation, not only in themselves but in their teams and workplace culture.  



  • The expression of emotion and strength of leadership aren’t mutually exclusive.
  • Our emotions impact our decisions, communication, and stress level, so we need to be mindful that our emotions matter. 
  • Emotional intelligence is being intelligent about our emotions, using mental skills and cognitive strategies to think smarter about why we are feeling what we’re feeling.
  • Many organizations would rather deal with unproductive behaviors or disrespectful communication than get to the heart of the issue. 
  • Businesses can have more innovation, more productivity, and more workplace happiness if they start talking about what's going on instead of sweeping conflicting emotions under the rug.
