Above and Below The Line

All the things that can happen when you bring your emotions and feelings to work, can be amazing. Susan and CrisMarie discuss how many people avoid using their emotions at work in this episode of The Beauty of Conflict. Nobody taught anyone how to deal with emotions, especially during formative years like high school or college. Managing emotions is a life-long process because it is also a journey of self-discovery. CrisMarie and Susan divide this topic of understanding behaviors through a fine line: above it for the response, below it for reacting. Being aware of which behaviors we always go into is fundamental to personal and professional growth. When in a relationship with someone, this can also be seen under another axis lens.

Find helpful tips to manage your emotions and your relationships at work, at home, and wherever you find yourself in.
