Wall Street Journal Bestseller! Next Big Idea Club selection―chosen by Malcolm Gladwell, Susan Cain, Dan Pink, and Adam Grant as one of the "two most groundbreaking new nonfiction reads of the season!" "A must-read that topples the idea that emotions don't belong in the workplace." --Susan Cain, author of Quiet A hilarious guide to effectively expressing your emotions at the office, finding fulfillment, and defining work-life balance on your own terms. How do you stop the office grouch from ruining your day? How do you enjoy a vacation without obsessing about the unanswered emails in your inbox? If you're a boss, what should you do when your new, eager hire wants to follow you on Instagram? 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! As both organizational consultants and regular people, we know what it's like to experience uncomfortable emotions at work - everything from mild jealousy and insecurity to panic and rage. Ignoring or suppressing what you feel hurts your health and productivity -- but so does letting your emotions run wild. Our goal in this book is to teach you how to figure out which emotions to toss, which to keep to yourself, and which to express in order to be both happier and more effective. We'll share some surprising new strategies, such as: * Be selectively vulnerable: Be honest about how you feel, but don't burden others with your deepest problems. * Remember that your feelings aren't facts: What we say isn't always what we mean. In times of conflict and miscommunication, try to talk about your emotions without getting emotional. * Be less passionate about your job: Taking a chill pill can actually make you healthier and more focused. Drawing on what we've learned from behavioral economics, psychology, and our own experiences at countless organizations, we'll show you how to bring your best self (and your whole self) to work every day.

No Hard Feelings

No Hard Feelings

Have you ever worried about showing emotion at work, or panicked you've revealed too much of your personality? In No Hard Feelings, you'll learn how to navigate the emotional minefield that is the modern workplace, and express your feelings and identity at work. After all, the financial success of the 21st century depends on it. Without the ability to communicate and correct stress, we risk burnout. Without emotions, we cannot make decisions, influence others, or be creative. As our jobs become more collaborative, complex, and stressful - as well as the centre of our identities - effectively embracing emotion will only become more important. Combining behavioural economics and psychology with sharp, funny and colourful illustrations, No Hard Feelings shows readers how to be more authentic, productive, and happy at work. Liz Fosslien is a marketing and design consultant who illustrates the webcomic Out of the Office, and her work has been featured by the Economist, the Freakonomics blog, and NPR. Mollie West Duffy is an organizational designer at IDEO and a professor at Stanford University where she teaches design. She writes a blog and advises companies on start-up culture.

Winnie doesn’t remember the last time she felt anything below her neck. Her spine is severed at the seventh vertebrae, but thanks to implants from a sabotaged biomedical start-up, she has regained mobility. She is a prototype: a living, breathing—walking—demonstration of revolutionary technology that never made it to market. Her disability has become her armor. Because she doesn’t register fatigue, she has trained relentlessly. Her hand, arm, and leg strength are off the scales for a woman, and she has honed self-defense techniques to channel that strength. She’s a modern-day Amazon who feels no pain. When the sociopath who torpedoed the start-up sends killers to harvest the implants from her body, Winnie must team up with broken-down private investigator August Riordan to save both their lives—and derail sinister plans for perverse military applications of the technology. Praise for the August Riordan series: “Mark Coggins writes tight prose with a clean, unadorned style; he is a Hammett for the turn of the 21st century.” —Loren D. Estleman, author of Gas City “Gritty... seamy... very funny. [Coggins] has given the form fresh life.” —National Public Radio “Dry ice sarcasm... and plenty of nasty chuckles in route.” —Wall Street Journal “Coggins’ private investigator August Riordan proves a worthy successor to the iconic Sam Spade... Heartily recommended.” —Library Journal “I’ve been waiting a long time for a fresh look at the private eye story. Mark Coggins has delivered it here with Candy from Strangers. It’s original, it’s smart and it was good to the last page.” —Michael Connelly, author of the Harry Bosch novels “Riordan and his creator... represent the new, 21st-century breed of writers and characters. ‘What’s happening with the private eye novel?’ is a perpetually popular question among the crime-fiction cognoscenti. Runoff is the answer.” —Stephen Miller, January Magazine “While echoing Chandler and Hammett, Coggins advances the genre into the Internet era.” —Booklist “Fast cars, nymphomaniac rich kids, billionaires with short attention spans and long money: a truer picture of Silicon Valley can’t be found.” —CNBC “Po Bronson, for all his talents, did not catch the Valley’s entrepreneurial/venture capital lifeblood in The First Twenty Million Is Always the Hardest as unerringly as Coggins does in Vulture Capital.” —Salon.com “Runoff by Mark Coggins is a smart, funny, spooky... often touching, always an entertaining romp through... San Francisco’s highways, byways, and alleys of corruption. (Hammett eat your hat and laugh.) It’s great fun and a must read.” —James Crumley, author of The Last Good Kiss

The New York Times bestselling author of The Valentine’s Arrangement continues her sizzling series with a new novel of a plan that goes awry—in the arms of a soldier.... Picking the wrong men is a talent Meagan Mitchell has perfected. She’s sweet, confident, beautiful— and single. With her thirtieth birthday sneaking up on her, she needs a new plan. No more Mr. Wrongs or Mr. Bads. It’s time to find Mr. Safe.... Army captain Reed Porter lives for the thrill—an Airborne Jumpmaster with a rush addiction. He’s sexy and playful, and he quickly tempts Meagan with his rich Southern drawl and sinful looks. But slowing down and settling down are not on his agenda, making him exactly the type of man Meagan wants to avoid.… As their undeniable attraction heats up, Meagan has to decide if she’s willing to risk everything on a chance at love with a reckless charmer. Is she brave enough to bet her future—and her heart—on Mr. Thrill? Or will Reed finally learn that the feeling of a safe landing is just as addicting as the rush of the fall?
