I interview Jackie Barretta, author of the new book from AMACOM, "Primal Teams: Harnessing the Power of Emotions to Fuel Extraordinary Performance." 

I ask Jackie:

  • What has changed in recent years that make team members’ emotions so critical to business success today?
  • How does your work differ from emotional intelligence, which is quite a familiar concept these days?
  • You write that negative emotions can be productive to a team or business. This seems counter-intuitive. Can you explain this and give an example?

Jackie Barretta specializes in defining the super-energy of elite teams and helping organizations create it in their own teams. She is also a Practice Director at Virtual Information Executives, where she provides technology consulting to higher education institutions.

Jackie has had several articles published in Information Week and CIO magazine. Her work with primal emotions in teams has won her widespread recognition and dozens of prestigious awards, including ComputerWorld’s Premier 100 IT Leaders, Information Week’s Innovator of the Year, and CIO Magazine’s Enterprise Value Award. She has served on the advisory boards of Hewlett Packard, Teradata, and the CIO Executive Council.

She holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and a master’s degree in organizational communication from Marylhurst University.
