Churchill more often demonstrated positive joy. He would smile, joke and dazzle his staff with charm and whimsy. He owned a power of the English language that few could match, and would recite poems, prose, or tell jokes that would not only break the ice, but brake the slide of others' attitudes. He worked hard in every relationship that he made to be more positive, to always tip the balance to the side of joy.
Churchill's acknowledgment of his anger driven missteps and the act of asking for forgiveness demonstrated to all of his team that he was human, and he also understood how his anger or emotion could affect his ability to lead. Because of his efforts to always deposit more then he withdrew in these “emotional accounts”, people would forgive him of his anger.
In his writings and in his messages, Churchill was always frank and direct to the point. His wartime messages would often be on a memo sheet entitled “Acton to be taken TODAY.” In all of his writing, Churchill would work hard to remove the hint of anger from his written correspondence to any member of his team. He worked to control his anger and focus that anger on the right persons, Hitler and the Nazi war machine.
