In-depth view at workplace related emotional behavior with lots of tips and references
on September 22, 2016
In-depth analyzing view at factors that shape our workplace in regards to the exception of, or inclusion of emotional expressions, from the perspective of biology (how our bodies are wired), gender (differences in both wiring and workplace history) and personality types (similar to Briggs-Myers system), with examples as part of the main narrative to illustrate a principle.
Distillation of best practices in regards to controlling/ managing emotions and how to channel them to our advantage in the form of a 'toolkit', and in general a please for a more inclusive workplace culture, in terms of emotions (both positive and negative) that author describes into great detail, i.e.; fear, anxiety, anger, compassion.
With lots of references to scientific studies and related other commonly known concepts (i.e. EQ, or emotional intelligence, Mars & Venus, etc.), as well as the inclusion of two personally initiated studies (specially for this book), it reads as a very solid affirmative argument for allowing emotions in the workplace, for the benefit of the people as well as (yes) their business.
A good starting point as well as reference for anyone aiming to bring about change, if only in oneself, thereby upping their chances of success in day-to-day struggles, with a lot of useful tips, ranging from the body-mind to the spirit.
