The Emotional Intelligence Dashboard - Ripple Effect of Emotions
Jun 19, 2021 5 min read

When you throw a stone in water, it creates ripples. A bigger stone goes deeper into the water, causing more outward ripples.

Our emotions are like the stones we throw. They send ripples through the people in your life and your outcomes. Emotions can create negative or positive ripples depending on their nature.

For eg if you are an angry boss at work and shout at your team member, it creates a ripple of fear in the person and those around him, thus impacting motivation. You may carry your angry mood home and that affects your spouse and children.

The next time watch how your emotions impact other people and use the information to understand the impact you are having on others.

Doing this, helps you to choose the type of ripples you want to create.
