By understanding the interplay between leadership styles, workplace culture, and team productivity, you can take the first step to being a more effective, and respected leader in your business or organization.
Leaders Set the Tone for the Meeting, and the Workplace
Have you ever sat in a meeting when your leader was in an uncommonly bad mood? How did it impact your fellow attendees, or yourself?

Often, a leader’s foul mood can cause meeting attendees to:
- Feel uncomfortable
- Fall silent
- Back away
The results of a meeting are impacted when the leader’s mood is not in the right place. You may find yourself and your team unable to address conflict, work through sticking points or make iterations on an idea. All of this can be the result of a leader’s bad mood setting the team on edge.
Leadership coaching, like the one-on-one executive coaching offered by business consultant David Stanislaw helps leaders become more aware of their internal emotional state and control and deal with those emotions differently. For example, they might walk into such a meeting saying:
“I’m not in a good mood today. It has nothing to do with any of you. Now let’s get to work.”
