In spite of countless organizational fix-it books, team-building exercises, and consulting experts, it's hard to find a truly healthy workplace. We've all been taught to avoid emotions at work, but this inevitably leads to losses in productivity, creativity, and job satisfaction. With The Power of Emotions at Work, McLaren teaches communication and empathy skills to help you create a healthy and functional environment that benefits everyone. You'll learn to recognize each other's emotional roles, how to support the "emotional laborers" in your workplace, and much more.
McLaren calls the workplace an "unintentional community," because without access to their emotions, people don't have the tools they need to function. This resource helps executives, managers, and workers understand and engage with emotions at work to create healthy and intentional communities where people and projects can thrive.
