Daily ReadEven at Work, You Cannot Ignore Feelings

Many employees do not want their co-workers to express any type of strong emotion — positive or negative. Employees expect others to hide negative emotions in order to maintain what they call “professionalism.” They also expect co-workers to hide positive ones by not showing too much pleasure with promotions or raises because someone else might have missed out.  There’s only one problem: Human beings don’t work that way.  The best workplaces know this, and leave room for both positive and negative emotions.

1: We make no decisions without emotions

2: Emotions guide workplace relationships

3: Emotions are at the core of employee engagement and motivation

4: Emotions are crucial to creativity and innovation
