Some of us live as two people, who we are at home and who we are at work. But our work and our lives don't have to be two separate identities. The key to bringing our whole selves to work every day is tossing out the myth that emotions don't belong in the workplace. When we learn to embrace our emotions at work, we not only allow our most authentic selves to shine, but also create a more human workplace for our colleagues.

On this episode, Deloitte Chief Well-being Officer Jen Fisher talks with Liz Fosslien, head of communications and content at Humu, coauthor and illustrator of No Hard Feelings and the upcoming book, Big Feelings, and @LizandMollie Instagram cofounder, about the importance of bringing emotions into work.

You just can't turn off your feelings no matter what you're doing. It's actually much more valuable to learn how to work through them and leverage them than to just continue to pretend that they don't exist.

— Liz Fosslien, coauthor and illustrator, No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotion at Work and the upcoming book, Big Feelings: How to Be Okay When Things Are Not Okay
