The Lethal Combination
Objectivity is great for decision-making, but it’s terrible for motivation. Great teams need both. The best situation any team can find themselves in is having the ability to focus their emotion like a laser at the objective. Rational thinking points us in a direction, but our emotions move us down the field. Robots don’t care enough and impulsive people care too much about the wrong things. The perfect mix of rational and emotional response cuts through the distractions with enough heat and precision to accomplish more than those who don’t care enough or can’t identify a target.
