How do I show I am Human?

Let’s think about it…

I get this question a lot. There are several strategies to consider here and I’m going to concentrate on the emotional expression emotional intelligence side of things in this blog… One way to show that you are human and not a robot is to express your emotions. Sometimes people, especially managers, think they need to always be poker-faced to be a leader for their team. Well, this typically stresses others out more than it helps because team members can’t tell if you are tuned into the situation, if you care, or if you even understand how they feel. Some things to consider:

  • If you don’t feel like you express your emotions effectively and/or don’t know where to start, try starting small. You can start with expressing how you feel in email form and then work up from that by trying to verbalize how you feel in small group settings.

  • If you do express your emotions frequently, be careful you do this at the appropriate level of intensity for the situation. Do this by watching how others react when you express your emotions and pick up on cues if you are too strong.
