In a typical workday, you may encounter situations that spark a variety of emotions, such as disagreements over decisions, frustration that someone is not taking you seriously, disappointment over not getting a promotion, or maybe complete dissatisfaction with your job. It is important to know when and how to express your emotions, and when to keep them in check. Outbursts, passive-aggressive behavior, or detachment are never responsible ways to handle emotions at work.
