Description

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.

Review quote

A must-read that topples the idea that emotions don't belong in the workplace, No Hard Feelings offers a path towards a future I want to work in: an emotionally expressive, yet respectful (and high performing!) workplace -- Susan Cain * author of Quiet and Chief Revolutionary at Quiet Revolution * No Hard Feelings is both a charming, sparkling read and a clear-eyed roadmap to harnessing the things that make us most human into tools that will make you more productive, effective and happier at work. A must-read for every leader and every aspiring leader -- Laszlo Bock * CEO of Humu and author of Work Rules! * No Hard Feelings dispels the myth that there's no place for emotions at work. You can't communicate clearly unless you're aware of your own emotions and the emotions you're sparking in others. You can't build productive relationships at work if you're showing up like a robot. This book will help you build the emotional discipline you need to succeed -- Kim Scott * author of Radical Candor * If you've ever thought it's best to check your emotions at the office door, this book will change your mind. It's full of lively illustrations and practical examples to show how you can harness emotions to become more creative, collaborative and productive -- Adam Grant * New York Times bestselling author of Originals, Give and Take and Option B with Sheryl Sandberg * Warm, witty and wise, No Hard Feelings is the missing manual for reconciling emotions with professionalism - intelligently -- Chip Conley * New York Times bestselling author and hospitality entrepreneur * Liz Fosslien and Mollie West Duffy address the elephant in the room, dissecting the ways that emotions at the office impact our ability to lead and thrive at every level of our professional careers. With compassion, research and clever comics (did I mention the elephants?) No Hard Feelings makes a real attempt at digging deeper than introvert memes to address the reality of workplace emotions we all live with -- Adam J. Kurtz * artist and author of Things Are What You Make of Them * Don't send another email, attempt a serious conversation at work, or try to follow your intuition until you read this book. Your emotional intelligence at work is about to skyrocket. Equally valuable for the person who cries covertly in bathroom stalls and the kind who buries their emotions 20,000 leagues under the sea -- Dan Lyons * author of Disrupted and Lab Rats * Excellent advice! -- Daniel Pink * author of When and Drive * A useful guide on how to be less stressed, more productive, and simply happier on the job. And who among us wouldn't want that? -- Goop A Next Big Idea Club Selection * Next Big Idea Club * Fortune.com's Top 10 Business Book of 2019 * . *
