An illustration of the phrase

Positive emotions

Feelings, and the words that describe them, are indicators. They communicate whether our needs are met or whether we trust our needs will be met.  Communicating how we feel about something is a powerful way to connect with our experience and with the people who interact with us. Sharing how we feel helps improve a team's well-being and builds emotional trust. When someone emotionally trusts you, they know you have their back and treat them with respect.

What can you do?

Choose words that give emotional context, whether it's joy, anticipation, appreciation, or concern. Help people understand the motivation behind your words and ideas.
