You’ve probably heard (or believe) you should:
- Keep your feelings to yourself, don’t let anyone see you sweat.
- Avoid talking about the feelings when an employee is obviously upset, because you think it would “get too personal” or turn into a therapy session.
- Tell yourself “it doesn’t matter” when you get the “here’s some feedback for you” email (cc’d to your boss or other team members).
Stay tuned for what you can do instead … but meanwhile, what are your thoughts on “emotions in the workplace?”
