13 Feb It’s Tough Doing the Right Thing
Do you find yourself torn between deciding about something that feels right for you and the concern about how it may go across with team members, co-workers, your boss, family, spouse, friends or even society?
Let’s face it, most of us feel justified in doing what we like, even when it is hurts or upset others. As such we spend a fair bit of our time in conflict with ourselves or with others.
In the first chapter of my new book, “Hurt, Upset, Angry, Frustrated?”, I talk about the brain and conflict, showing how our brain leads us to do the right thing for us, which may not be the right thing for others. It explores the relationship between our own needs and interest, as directed by our brain and the social expectations and norms we must follow.
To further emphasize this point and to teach some skills around this, I spent time discussing the dialogue between our personal interest and doing what’s socially acceptable.
To learn more on this topic, you can download a free chapter of my book on our website here.
Working together we can learn to reduce the hurt, upset, anger and frustration, so we can work, live and play well.
