As a leader, you must develop relationships with those on your teams, but distance is necessary to set boundaries, prevent playing favorites and when your judgment may be in question, writes Lolly Daskal. "As a leader, it's important to be fair and impartial in your decision-making and interactions with your team," Daskal writes.

Put it into practice: If you find yourself in a situation above your leadership skills, it's crucial to have the wisdom to step back and let someone else take the reins, Daskal notes. "As a leader, this allows you to focus on developing your leadership skills and learning from those who are more experienced."

Put it into practice: Pinpointing the context of an emotional trigger and examining setbacks and leadership moments in your life can lead you to better resilience, Quy explains. Practice taking time with negative emotions and then positive ones so you'll be able to replicate the latter in the moment.

Smarter Communication
AI-powered communication tools can be an enticing way to create personalized internal messages "tailored to [employees'] language, culture and role" -- but first ensure you have a policy in place to keep this enhancement from becoming a liability, advises Ciara Flaherty of Springboard Communications. "The empathy, emotional intelligence and human connection that professionals bring to the table are irreplaceable," Flaherty writes.

Put it into practice: "Adopt a holistic approach, where AI augments the capabilities of communication teams rather than replacing them," Flaherty recommends. Even using it as a supporting tool, "human oversight should be integral to the process, offering checks and balances to mitigate potential pitfalls."

Campbell Soup's transformation in recent years has been driven by business outcome-focused decisions, a streamlined focus on snacks and meal preparation and a commitment to building trust with board members, said CEO Mark Clouse. "I believe it's important that we arm our organization with an understanding of what we're dealing with, and if we don't understand or we don't have an answer, be open and honest about it and what we're doing to find it and how we're working to solve it," Clouse says.

The data show you'll pony up more for dinner rolls, pumpkin pie filling and three pounds of sweet potatoes.

LaRae Quy and Lolly Daskal offer sound leadership advice today for when your emotions are triggered, or you need to step back and let others take the lead.

Daskal notes that it can be tempting to favor some team members over others and react poorly when questions about your leadership arise. Quy's tools for dealing with emotions are essential. If you're already familiar with what triggers you and you've developed the emotional competence you need, you'll be less likely to be overcome by your feelings.
