People Do Not Follow Robots

Leaders must be comfortable under pressure and take action based on logic, not emotion. While leaders should be calm and level-headed, they must not be robotic. In fact, it is necessary and normal for leaders to show emotion. Why? The team must believe that the leader cares about them and their well-being.

Leaders must always control their emotions though. If leaders cannot control their emotions, how can they expect to control anything else? Leaders who lose their temper lose respect. Similarly, leaders who never show excitement or frustration appear void of emotion – a robot.

People do not follow robots. People follow effective leaders that build and train successful teams that consistently achieve their missions and win. These leaders build genuine relationships with people versus bark orders at them. When genuine relationships are built, people actively follow leaders and generally do anything to support them.
