Description

Join us for very special crossover event between LifeLabs Learning and CULTURE LABx. Experience a free LifeLabs mini workshop about scaling culture and meet the authors of two new books about culture: Mollie West Duffy and Josh Levine. LifeLabs will kick off the evening and run a mini workshop about scaling your culture strategically. Mollie and Josh will share a bit about their books, and then lead small group discussions about specific culture topics. This is a unique opportunity to hear from these experts and meet others interested in workplace culture.

This event is free, so tickets will go quickly. There will be books available for purchase, which the authors will sign at the end of the event.

NO HARD FEELINGS by Mollie West Duffy and Liz Fosslien

In NO HARD FEELINGS, Mollie West Duffy and Liz Fosslien take a charming and deeply researched look at how emotions affect our professional lives and how we can navigate emotions at work. The modern workplace can be an emotional minefield (Do I shake my boss's hand or give her a hug? Did I forget to mute my phone on the conference call?) filled with unwritten rules. As our jobs become more collaborative, complex, and stressful, effectively embracing emotion is more important than ever. The book combines practical advice and scientific research to give you the tools you need to build an emotionally healthy culture. Thanks to Fosslien's sharply funny two-color illustrations, No Hard Feelings is a romp through behavioral economics, psychology, and organizational design.
