About this Research Topic
This article collection will take into account all these aspects in order to not leave the epistemic space that it is intended to study. Moreover, it will present the changes and diverse perspectives that still exist today when studying emotions and how the psychology of emotions emerged in order to understand them in the social framework. It is evident that in all fields of social and behavioral sciences that the subject of emotions has been investigated, raised, criticized and experimented with. The main focus of this Research Topic is the analysis of innovation, emotion and leadership in different professional contexts.
The unifying thread through the collection is the paradox that the more one tries to individualize emotions and set limits that separate the different types of emotions (e.g. affections, passions, feelings and states of mind), the more evident it is that it is an unnecessary systematization. These distinctions just deal with different ways of feeling and caring. Our interest in this particular Research Topic shares the integration of different areas of psychology. This topic represents not only the first attempt at assessing cooperation, communication, caring, emotion regulation, and leadership, but also provides a significant step forward in assessing how these variables relate to team performance and innovation. Importantly, not only basic social psychological research on emotions, care, motivation and self-regulation, but also applied research can profit from this topic. Indeed, this research might aid in promoting more effective emotion regulation and leadership and thus, higher overall team performance. This is not only true for research groups, but also overall in working settings.
We are interested to receive contributions that address the following topics:
• Emotion regulation, leadership, partnership and team performance in innovative environments
• Interaction complexity and communicative patterns in professional settings
• Caring, affective and emotional aspects between professionals
• Analysis of collaborative mechanisms as an individual product, as well as an emerging result of the professional environment
The following article types are welcomed in this collection: Original research, Systematic review, Methods, Review, Mini review, Hypothesis and Theory, Perspective, Conceptual analysis, Empirical study, Data report, General commentary, Opinion.
Keywords: Emotions, Leadership, Management, Emotional intelligence
