7 Reasons to Never Hold Back Your Opinion

In the professional world, opinions can be dangerous. Holding a controversial opinion can damage your reputation; stating an opinion that contradicts your boss's can leave you vulnerable; voicing your opinion at the wrong time can make you appear foolish. The old adage attributed to Abraham Lincoln goes, "It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt," and in the realm of business, that seems to be the truth. However, holding your opinions back can actually be more damaging than speaking them. In fact, opinions are what fuel momentum--all ideas, plans, and decisions begin and end with opinions, and if you consistently refrain from voicing yours, you'll be doing both your employer and your career a disservice.

Leaders Who Can Read Collective Emotions Are More Effective -- INSEAD

Leaders Who Can Read Collective Emotions Are More Effective -- INSEAD | Australian History Novels | Scoop.it

emotional intelligence, which evaluates how well individuals perceive and deal with affectively charged interpersonal situations. But there are situations in which leaders have to deal with the emotions of large groups of people, not just those of one or a few individuals and most managers don’t have time to operate on a one-on-one basis all the time. Understanding the collective can help leaders respond effectively to the group as a whole. This happens in situations such as dealing with the collective anxiety of executives facing the news of corporate restructuring; or public authorities dealing with the collective anger of large groups of people in the streets; or politicians seeking to inspire large groups of people to win an election. Those with the skill to pick up on the subtle emotional cues of the collective can adapt accordingly and, according to our research, earn more respect as a result. So how can this ability to see the forest for the trees be applied by leaders?
