The Emotions of Work Transitions | How Can They Support You?
Sunday April 16 at 9:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected
The common advice is to keep our feelings out of our work, to keep the personal separate from the professional; yet our emotions are an essential part of our human experience especially when we are going through a transition period in our lives. Join Mary Bajorek, an Interintellect fellow, in her fourth installment of the 12-week journey of rehabilitating our work life in which we’ll discuss the emotions that accompany the process of finding our work expression and how they are a necessary part of our journey to acknowledge and learn from.
Emotions are important data and can support us immensely throughout the process if we lean into hearing what they have to say. In the process of figuring out what is ours to do in the world, emotions are inevitable. Fear, grief, excitement, doubt, confusion, joy, boredom and relief will all show up in a variety of ways. For a lot of us the default when we experience intense emotions is to see them as something separate from our decision making, something to work through so we can think rationally but in reality our feelings hold a lot of information about what we care about and what’s important to us.
In this salon we’ll talk about the unacknowledged feelings that come with going through career explorations and transitions, explore how to have tea with your emotions and get to know what they might be telling us and share ways we can support our ourselves through this beautifully emotional process.
