240: Managing Big Feelings with Liz Fosslien

By July 26, 2022February 2nd, 2023No Comments

Do you have big emotions? How do you feel about them? Are you ashamed of them? Overwhelmed by them?

If you don’t have big feelings, have you ever asked yourself why? Do you not feel as deeply or do you just not show those feelings as much? Have you wondered why you are that way? Is it just how you are or have you been taught to keep that stuff in?

The problem is, we aren’t given a handbook for our humanness. So we look to others and we model them. Or we compare. Or we judge. Or we just pretend like nothing is happening.

And then we suffer in silence and then wonder why things don’t get a whole lot better.

But if we’re all going through the hardships of life, it doesn’t have to be that way. Even if you’re not big on sharing your emotions with others, there are ways to help that emotional energy move through you rather than getting stuck.

And that’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Liz Fosslien.

Liz Fosslien is an expert on how to make work better, and co-author and illustrator of the best-selling book Big Feelings and the Wall Street Journal best-seller No Hard Feelings. Her work has been featured by Good Morning America, The New York Times, The Economist, Time, TED, and CNN. She has given keynotes about emotions at work at organizations including Google, LinkedIn, NPR, and Spotify.
