Leaders who acknowledge the emotions of those around them build trusting and engaging teams.
Recent research highlights that “People trust the person who acknowledges the emotion directly more than the person who acknowledges the situation. There’s just something special and unique about emotions—they are really core to a person’s inner experience and sense of self. So, when we acknowledge emotions, we humanize and validate the person being acknowledged.”
