THE EDITOR’S MESSAGE Emotion is an imperious influence in every facet of life and cannot be dislodged from organizations. The effect of emotion is hence very visibly seen on productivity. It is a strong intrinsic factor that has the power to inspire an employee’s willingness to excel. It affects individual productivity, which cumulatively affects the organization at large. Employees are hence required to master the art of regulating their own emotions and use them effectively so as to sustain soaring productivity and ensure organizational growth. Thus, in this highly turbulent environment it is imperative to control and direct emotions to protract productivity and create paramount excellence in the organization. The theme of the next issue of Knowledge Beans will be ‘The link between emotional intelligence and job involvement’ .
