Emotions don’t belong in a professional environment…!?
I often hear people say that talking about emotions is unprofessional. How come many of us think that emotions don’t belong in a professional environment?
When you feel irritated by your discussion partner, you could try to hide it, but I can guarantee that this will cost a lot of energy. This is because, unfortunately(?), we are not capable of hiding our emotions very well.
And all the effort you put into hiding emotions, can’t be used anymore for achieving the desired result of your discussion or meeting.
Besides, there’s a big chance that your discussion partner will sense your irritation. Probably this will also irritate him/her. When your partner also hides their irritation, the discussion is likely to be far from effective...
