Effective communication, including knowing how to manage your emotions at work, is essential in business. Whether you are in an office or a less formal environment, you likely need to communicate verbally and non-verbally with your co-workers, supervisors, and clients. Improve your communication skills at work to boost your professional image and get more positive attention.
Emotions at Work
Being able to manage or control your emotions at work is important. You want to appear a confident, capable person in your position. Do you laugh uncontrollably at a person, rather than with a person, or cry uncontrollably when your project is cancelled? These actions are not professional. If your workplace values professionalism, you have communicated that you are not only acting less than professional but that you also don’t handle pressure well.
