Constructive negativity > fake positivity.
 
Greetings, Ninja!

It may be the age of AI, but most workplaces are still run by humans. Do we have a robot’s speed, precision, and accuracy? Nope. But we do have something that AI has yet to codify: emotions. And regardless of what you may have been told, emotions DO have a place at the office.

A high level of emotional intelligence helps us understand different leadership styles and manage professional relationships. Even negative emotions, like fear and anger, can be channeled constructively, so don’t bottle them up! Use them to bring clarity to complex situations and effect change.

Rock on!
