Managing Uncomfortable Emotions with Liz Fosslien and Mollie West Duffy

Date: 11/12/2020

Time: 12:30pm
Where: LMHQ, Virtual,

LMHQ was excited to welcome back Liz Fosslien and Mollie West Duffy for another engaging discussion! Liz and Mollie hosted a wonderful workshop at LMHQ in February 2019 after the launch of their first book: No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions at Work. The workshop focused on how to embrace emotions to be more effective at work and covered topics like creating a culture of belonging, leading with empathy, and communicating effectively.
For many of us, 2020 has been a year filled with a lot of hard feelings. So that's what they decided to focus on in their second book: how to move forward when things seem difficult or even downright impossible. In this new book, which will be published by Penguin, Liz and Mollie will take a close look at emotions like hopelessness, anger, regret, exhaustion, and anxiety. What can we learn from them? How do we allow ourselves to feel them without being completely controlled by them?
Liz and Mollie hosted an interactive discussion with the LMHQ community about these emotions. Participants shared stories and coping mechanisms and Liz and Mollie shared what they've learned so far in their research.
