An Emotional Rollercoaster (3922 hits)

I thought to drop in a quick line for my Academia related audience:

[Emotional discrepancies are created when employees’ affect is discrepant from the organizational display rule, thereby motivating them to engage in emotional labor to reduce the discrepancy.]

Of course there was more - just wanted you to have a taste of what one young lady included in her thesis statement on Emotional Discrepancy at work. She asked to remain anonymous.

For all others, my version in easy to read format:

[On the job, display of emotion has wrecked a many career. Bad or good is of no relevance because I can show you examples of both. The point here is that someone saw it.]

The fact of the matter is that reality is a courageous constant that snatches our emotions without concern or warning. I encourage my candidates to try and ALWAYS consider the ramifications of their display.

Whether academic or plain speak, the message ends up being the same: So long as file cabinets and jump drives exist, your antics are lying in wait to tell another version of the story. It's called in most cases a performance review.
