No Hard Feelings

Emotions at Work and How They Help Us Succeed

Summary

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.
