A Happy Person makes a Better Employee

Your team member takes you home with them. That is my contention and I believe there is plenty of scientific evidence to support this contention. For example, look at the terms spill-over and crossover as described by Schaufeli and Bakker (2020). Work is an important part of a person’s life, you derive a piece of identity from it. How you feel at work and how you are treated there, you take home with you. And vice versa. It is ultimately about wellbeing and the emotions people experience. Including the emotions you experience at work. That emotions and stress are closely linked and affect wellbeing seems obvious. And then to conclude how everything stands or falls via communication within your team, department or organization!

Stress

Challenges can lead to stress, stress affects your functioning; for better or worse. The way people deal with stress and the beliefs they hold about stress determine the extent to which stress actually has a negative impact on their (psychological) health.

No communication = no organization

An organization exists thanks to communication: you communicate because you need something from the other person and the other person needs something from you. This is precisely why interpersonal conversation skills are so important, also because they ensure intrinsic motivation, happy employees and better performance.
