Emotion at Work
Malcom Forbes said if you have a job without any aggravations, you don't have a job. That’s probably true for a lot of folks, and how to manage those workplace aggravations is a job unto itself. These days “downsizing” and “budget cuts” are part of the 9 to 5 nomenclature. Now work life and home life boundaries are blurred. The chronic stress so many of us have can make keeping our personal life separate from professional persona downright hard. In her book, It’s Always Personal, Anne Kreamer challenges the convention that being emotional at work is off limits. With more women in the work force--with the emotional landscape of the workplace changing --it’s time for women and men a to get real, she argues. It’s time for us to get over the taboo of emotional openness on the job .
