“Now don't get so emotional right away. We can't afford to have feelings here," he says Meeting. Emotions are frowned upon in management circles. They are negated wherever possible. There doesn't seem to be much room for it, especially on the executive floor. They waft there above all. Status symbols, excesses of power, trench warfare and cocky behavior speak for themselves. The leaders in particular are controlled far less rationally than it first appears. And that's good too.

Because showing feelings is like putting indicators so that everyone knows which way to go. Incidentally, the US scientist and Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman has experimentally proven that it is not those who come up with the best arguments who gain the sovereignty of interpretation, but those who trigger emotions and tell the most coherent story. So the true professional brings his message not about a jumble of numbers, but about well-chosen examples and clever metaphors.

Reason in acting without feelings is not possible

Without feelings, rational action is not even possible. For what happens behind the more or less closed doors of the subconscious mind at lightning speed and without our intervention, we seek only in the end a reasoning that seems plausible to ourselves and others. Ergo: Man makes decisions emotionally - and then justifies them rationally.

The true cerebral power center is the limbic System. This older and deeper in the brain Structure has a much greater impact on our Behavior than our large or thinking brain, the neocortex.

Some brains are incredibly good at imagining the worst, even on seemingly insignificant occasions: “He didn't say anything about my work.
