A useful model in the context of influencing behavior is to think of emotions as drivers of or barriers to the desired behavior. This means that the ability to understand your own emotional barriers and drivers and those of others is essential for changing your own behavior and influencing a change in the behavior of others. There are more than 250 emotions and a person can experience a mixture of emotions at any given time, and learning emotions can seem overwhelming.
Overwhelmed? That’s why Reiner Lomb developed The ASPIRE Leadership Model, which focuses on the seven essential emotions and behaviors for leading positive, aspirational change. Learning the seven essential emotions and how to shift to the ones you need will drive the leadership behaviors that help you create the change you aspire to, no matter where you are.
