In our Western society we have a never negative outlook to failure. The idea of failing is terrifying and we do all we can to keep ourselves on the track of success. However, perhaps we need to change our way of thinking about failure...   Getting at the source of failure If you treat an employee's failure the right way, you can turn it to your advantage. If a project flops, sit down with the staff member responsible and, rather than assign blame, explore the reasons for the failure. Search for the cause -were the resources insufficient? were they faulty? was the timing poor? was the planning inadequate? was the data erroneous? did failure reside in a personality trait - a tendency to jump to conclusions, or to rely on ambiguous data? Only then can you correct the problem at its root. It's what we learn from the experience of [...]

It keeps you in touch by connecting you to new people and information. It is one of the highest forms of collaboration." Jimmy Calano & Jeff Salzman, CareerTracking, Gower, Aldershot, 1988, p. 244.

Our emotions provide us with valuable information about ourselves, others, and situations. From frustration to contentment, from anger to elation, we confront these varying emotions daily in the workplace. The key is to use our emotions intelligently - by being aware of their presence and intentionally using them to guide our behaviour to enhance our situation. This process comprises two elements, says Hendrie Weisinger in 'Emotional Intelligence at Work' - first (considered here), we need to understand our emotions and develop self-awareness and, second, we must know how to manage those emotions to best advantage in the workplace. 1. Understand the meaning of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is ‘the ability to monitor one’s own and other people’s feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them, and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and action’. For example, if a client drives you crazy to the point of anger, do you shout [...]
