Henry Ford once said: “Why is it every time I ask for a pair of hands, they come with a brain attached?”
This means that wherever people are, there are always emotions and relationships, not just ideas and skills for getting the job done.
Let’s see how the emotional component is formed within a project team and how to manage it to make the project beneficial.
The emotional environment of the project is its emotions, as well as the emotional relationships that arise in people during project preparation and the project execution stages.
Emotional management equals the emotional handling of the project, in order to increase its effectiveness. But it doesn’t empty scattered emotions that you show to the left and to the right. Let’s face it.
What Emotional Management and Emotional Intelligence is Not
1. Emotional management and intelligence are not about being nice all the time.
They are about being honest. One equation written by Charles H. Green stated that the called trust equation works very well in this case
Intimacy relates to the ability to understand how the other person ticks—what may be things that affect him or her and how they respond to developments after the fact.
2. Emotional management and intelligence are not being touchy feely. They are about being aware of your feelings and those of others. By others, we mean understanding project stakeholders. Get more on this later in the article.
3. Emotional management and intelligence are about not being emotional.They are about being smart with your emotions.Emotional Management – In Practice and In a Team.
I really like the picture below, depicting the opportunity to visualize how much of the project is occupied by human relationships, and how directly they affect the results.

Behavior is always based on values where values create a practice to behave. Statistics show that the impact of emotional competencies on effective performance is around 67%.Emotional management in a technological, fast changing IT world means that you should also ensure that employees want to stay within the organization at any time and in any situation even when difficulties and problems arise along the way. When an employee feels good about their self every morning when leaving for work, they will not want a new job where they take a chance with other managers within a new and unknown working environment.
What Emotional Management and Emotional Intelligence is Not
Here, I would encourage us to define the typology of emotional management in relational service work. You, as a manager, manage emotion in a way that satisfies the client, in order to generate profit that leads to a successful project, and meets and anticipates the client’s additional needs in order to build a strong and far-reaching working relationship. You also might care about the client if and when it is a part of the job. You can’t extend care that is beyond job expectations, BUT you should be the one to go ask for it. This will be a win factor, when the client relies on you full time.Many managers say that they get to know the client’s feelings about their work by reading it in an email first. But then, controversial questions are necessary to bring up, leading to the use of Skype or establishing a one-on-one meeting.
Emotional signals through live communication are organizational in that they might be communicated by clients, but are only contingently supported by employees and thus, not universally understood so they are not rules.You as a manager should be able to identify critical connections and keep the state of the situation far from conflict mode.
First, map out your client on your interactive screen app — same as in pic.2 and classify him or her by their interest in your work and their power over your work.

1. High-level and high interest type clients should be fully engaged and have the greatest effort in achieving satisfaction. Get involved at the first step and consult with them regularly, but any overdoing with emotions isn’t acceptable. Build a trustful relationship.
2. High-level and less interested people, keep them satisfied, but don’t bother much to engage in their job.
3. Lower-level clients, interested people. They are the ones that usually work with you on a regular basis. They are really helpful with the detail of your project. They might be closely connected to the first type of people as well.
4. Low-level clients are often less interested people. They have no need in excessive communication.
Don’t let your customer struggle at any time alone. Support them, ask and support again.
For this reason:
Don’t let emotions own you, but let them be…
Internet of things has already sneaked into our houses. It can control almost everything starting from the floor temperature, curtains position, and the door locks, ending with making coffee when you have just woken up. Being surrounded by smart devices at home, why not to move them into the office and bring automatization to everyday...
A recent Deloitte research sites that 62% of companies perceive contact centers as a “competitive advantage” that drives additional customers. Definitely, in the age when services dominate over the products, few will argue with the importance of contact centers. It must be acknowledged that additional services (contact centers are among them) are the new drivers...
The development of any product can be a huge process and just like any others that you would expect a positive result from, the WEB process needs to be thought out and measured. A lot of developers, especially the junior ones or even the little companies, think that some stages of development are just a...
