List Of Positive Emotions You Might Experience At Work

Here’s a list of positive emotions you could experience at work. Recognizing your emotions is important so that you can choose how to respond to them.

Emotional intelligence around teammates, clients, employers and your managers will help you guide your interactions. Rather than letting your emotions jerk you around like a rider on a herky-jerky roller coaster, you can decide in advance how they get to impact your actions.

Read through the list and pick 1-3 that represent emotions you've been experiencing regularly this month. Notice that these emotions are a state of being, versus a personal characteristic. You might experience one of them often, yet it could change with time, depending on the situation. Because positive emotions are things you want more of, stop to reflect on the ones you selected. Where did the positive emotion come from? What tasks, thoughts, people, or situations tend to seed this emotion for you? How can you get more of it?
