Emotions at work, food for healthy workplaces

by Elisa Conti

The language of the emotions is our first way to communicate. Nevertheless we struggle to recognize it and understand that the emotions are fundamental in order to think, act, work. Even if the effects of the Covid make it clear, the comprehension and management of the emotions is not always welcome at the individual level and even more inside the organization. Working in a supportive, inclusive and emotionally healthy system brings an added value in terms of benefits not only for the wellness of the people who act in the system but also about the effectiveness of the way of working. In this workshop we would like to share with you some ways to highlight the role of the emotions in the workplace, for well regulated systems and functional working teams.
