What happens when we go to work? We carry all the burdens we do in our everyday lives — our hopes, dreams, failures, childhood and other traumas, and more.
Work is not a magical place where we can just drop everything at the front door (or front desk) and act like we’re a different or perfect person. The workplace is, of course, a place for work. But we can’t hide our humanity or burdens from our jobs, our bosses, or our co-workers.
Many becomes adept at wearing a work mask at the workplace, yet the mask is rarely perfect or a perfect fit. Our troubles, personalities and concerns still rear their heads. How does a boss deal with all this while getting the best from their employees? How does an employee put their best foot forward, all the while coping with trauma or other serious concerns?
That’s why I’m pleased to introduce Innovating in Organizations with Elizabeth Power, M.Ed. Elizabeth is an expert in the area of innovation, trauma and organizations, helping organizations help their employees and colleagues get the best from one another. You can learn more about her here.
Please give Elizabeth a warm Psych Central welcome over on her blog, Innovating in Organizations now.
This is an announcement only, so there are no comments.
