Emotions are a difficult thing to master. As we became adults, we have seen the separation between those who manage their emotions and those who allow their emotions to manage them. Emotions can be a strength and a liability on a team because emotion leak and spread to those close to us. If I am prone to self-control and patience, I will be a help to my team in the face of circumstance that trigger emotion. If I am not, I become a liability to my team that can cause unwise emotionally driven decisions and actions to be taken.
