The Forum at Town Hall


How do we handle emotions in the workplace? What used to be taboo is now front and center when we talk about a day in the life of the modern worker. Join Liz Fosslien and Mollie West Duffy, the authors of No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions at Work, for a wide-ranging conversation on why emotions are the new secret weapon to success in the office and how to channel yours to feel your best and do your best work.

The authors share learnings, expert advice, comic illustrations from the book, and personal insights from their years spent studying the latest research around emotions, answering questions like: how can we embrace emotion at work without letting it run wild? Where’s the line between sharing and oversharing at work? How can we create a culture of belonging? How much vulnerability should leaders display? And is it possible that caring less about our jobs could be the key to success?
