Don’t Cry (at the Office)

See on Scoop.itProductivity, Leadership, & Technology

Emotional displays are frowned up, but it’s unhealthful to just bottle up your feelings. Experts say you should be attuned to your emotional triggers so responses can be managed for more productive outcomes.

Don’t vent at work. Excuse yourself if necessary and go home. Lean on your personal network, a therapist or even a career coach who can offer some objective advice. You can also try writing about the incident from the point of view of your antagonist. Stopping to reflect will allow you to cool down, deconstruct the problem and find ways to move forward by understanding why your antagonist acted the way he or she did.
