I believe it is important for a good leader to spend time developing a team's emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence helps us to control our emotions and use them in a positive manner. As leaders, we need to be able to share that with our team. If we declare that we have a vision or a goal and we are going to work towards our mission statement, we will loose credibility if we are overly emotional. For example, if we are trying to persuade others to see the benefits of using environmentally friendly products because and some people still chose not to, we would do no good if be began to shout or become angry about it. Since our group is to share our same values and beliefs and are working towards the same goal, we do not want them doing that either.
