Managing Workplace Emotions
You can't change conflict and opposing points of view in the workplace. You can, however, change the way you react. Become more emotionally aware, harness your emotions and express them positively with control, confidence and composure.

Out on a limb

Just spent a fabulous four days at the Fernie Writers Conference. This was action packed. 12 hours with Betty Jane Hegerat, our faciliator. She inspired us to look long and hard at each other's writing. We gave each other valuable feedback.  Thanks to everyone. There were readings and panels to attend.  In our 'spare time' there was a walk at Island Lake, a quick ride up the Gondola. Then a banquet. All in all lots of interaction with dedicated and motivated writers.
