The Hivery Circle: How Introverts and Extroverts Can Flourish At Work and Business with Liz Fosslien

Business and the modern workplace can be an emotional minefield, filled with confusing power structures and unwritten rules. We're expected to be authentic, but not too authentic. Professional, but not stiff. Friendly, but not an oversharer. Easier said than done!

No Hard Feelings Book event at The Hivery

February’s evening Hivery Circle will explore how to bring your best self (and your whole self) to work every day.

Join us for a fun and interactive evening with Liz Fosslien, strategy and design consultant and the co-author of No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions At Worka book that explores how emotions profoundly affect key aspects of professional life.

Introverts and extroverts have different needs: extroverts tend to react to social interactions more quickly, while introverts have a higher base rate of arousal (put an introvert in a noisy open office and he’ll quickly become overwhelmed). In this fun, interactive workshop, Liz will help both introverts and extroverts understand, communicate, and optimize around their own and each others' tendencies.

The book No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions At Work, is a deeply researched yet affectionate guide to un-repressing emotions at work, finding constructive channels even for jealousy and anxiety, and demystifying digital interactions and coworker communication styles. It's launching February 5th, 2019 from Penguin books. Early fans of the book include Susan Cain, Adam Grant, Laszlo Bock, Chris Voss, and Kim Scott.

Key takeaways will include:

  • An overview to the new book which is a guide to effectively expressing your emotions at the office, finding fulfillment, and defining work-life balance on your own terms.

  • Understand how you show up in business or at work each day and what you need to thrive

  • Learn more about how you and others prefer to work through break out exercises such as how you or colleagues prefer to receive praise.

  • ‘How To Work With Me’ practical advice and tips using scientific research

Guests will enjoy wine courtesy of Bee Hunter Wine, and non-alcohol GT’s Living Food and lite bites.
