Lateral leadership is more than a mere concept of how to lead teams and colleagues without hierarchical power. It is a leadership style at eye level, matches the leadership understanding of millennials and is crucial for human resource. An HR developer explains.
Emotional leadership isn’t only a topic that is pretty trendy at the moment. It’s a topic that strikes all of us. Being a leader, again and again we are in situations where we have to deal with strong emotions. Sometimes these emotions are positively connoted like joy and passion. And something they are negatively experienced, these are emotions like grief, anger, disappointment. The „negative“ ones are exceptionally challenging. Fortunately the labels „taboo“ and „unprofessional“ begin to disappear and therewith begin to offer a more differentiated approach to the topic enhancing social and emotional intelligence and simultaneously making teams, leaders and organisations more successful.
