Navigating Emotions in Difficult Situations

Recommendation: Emotions in difficult situations
What are you feeling right now? And how many emotions can you identify at this moment? Emotions can be conflicting, and you may experience several simultaneously. When faced with a tough situation, conflict, or challenging conversation, articulating your emotions can calm the situation. So why do we often avoid expressing emotions in the workplace?
This video helps you understand how to express your emotions constructively and in a manner suitable for the work environment! If you enjoy the video, feel free to share the text and image above with your colleagues through a newsletter, on an intranet, or via Slack.

How to Turn Change Resistance into an Asset
