NO HARD FEELINGS by Mollie West Duffy & Liz Fosslien
In NO HARD FEELINGS, Mollie West Duffy & Liz Fosslien take a charming & deeply researched look at how emotions affect our professional lives & how we can navigate emotions at work. The modern workplace can be an emotional minefield (Do I shake my boss's hand or give her a hug? Did I forget to mute my phone on the conference call?) filled with unwritten rules. As our jobs become more collaborative, complex, & stressful, effectively embracing emotion is more important than ever. The book combines practical advice & scientific research to give you the tools you need to build an emotionally healthy culture. Thanks to Fosslien's sharply funny two-color illustrations, No Hard Feelings is a romp through behavioral economics, psychology, & organizational design.
