How do you deal with your emotions at work?
'Full of lively illustrations and practical examples to show how you can harness emotions to become more creative, collaborative and productive' Adam Grant, author of Originals
We all know what it's like to feel overwhelmed with emotions at work - everything from jealousy to insecurity, anxiety to straight up panic - and there's no field guide to coping with them well.
But we also know that ignoring or suppressing what you feel hurts your health, happiness and productivity.
This book will help you figure out how to express your emotions productively in order to be both happier and more effective at work. Drawing on behavioural economics and psychology, No Hard Feelings will show you how to bring your best self to work every day.
'A must-read' Susan Cain, author of Quiet
According to this kind, empathetic book, most people wildly underestimate the impact their emotions have on their workdays and careers. Marketing and design consultant Fosslien and organizational designer Duffy offer a guide to managing emotions at the workplace, exploring the ways that emotion affects each of seven central aspects of work: health, motivation, decision making, teamwork, communication, culture, and leadership. Modern work life requires the ability to understand and manage emotions at the office, but many have never learned how to do this, the authors write. Using clever, sometimes counterintuitive advice e.g., "Be less passionate about your job" and sweet, funny cartoons (one depicts "the little engine that literally couldn't even"), Fosslien and Duffy guide readers through learning to incorporate their emotions into their work, and being mindful of timing, context, and delivery in their careers. This is an encouraging, thorough guide for those trying to manage being human beings in workplaces not always designed for them.
