Emotional intelligence is a workplace concept that should be taken seriously

Emotional intelligence is a workplace concept that should be taken seriously | aged Care | Scoop.it

If everyone was just like me, the entire office would be made of Belgian chocolate and we'd watch movies all day, stopping only occasionally to nibble on the walls.

 

Unfortunately, my workplace

 is like everyone else's: made of bland, inedible materials and filled with people who have different tastes, personalities and emotions.

(From the article): Somewhere along the line we decided the way we interact in a work environment should be quite different than the way we interact with friends and family. That's as it should be, up to a point. But it overlooks the fact that we don't become robots when we walk through the office door.

We remain human beings throughout the day. Fleshy, warm-blooded, emotional.

 

Appreciate that. And hope that someday we can all work in office buildings made of rich Belgian chocolate — which would help smooth out everyone's emotions.
