Joy at work


Joy

The situation: Whoop! The CEO has just congratulated you on your work and offered you a promotion. Ecstatic, you want to shout about it from the rooftops.

What to avoid: Don’t go over the top with showing your happiness. "Buddhists say that all emotions, even positive, can have a downside." Before calling all your mates, consider your other colleagues. Unfortunately, your enthusiasm may lead to jealousy from the other staff. 

 The right reaction: Begin by thanking your CEO for the promotion. Be positive and professional. Patrick suggests: "Act appropriately according to your corporate culture.” With your colleagues, try to be discreet about how pleased you are, you’ll command more authority.
