Leaders have a great effect on a team’s state of mind and emotions. Great leaders stabilize the emotions of the team. This is important because teams have an inherent liability. When we work with others, we will inevitably be affected by their emotions. Have you ever been around someone with an infectious laugh? Doesn’t everything seem so much funnier with that person around? Highs and lows can be accentuated when a group of people experience the same emotions together. The team needs a leader who can bring balance to the experience.
