Envy At Work
Comparing yourself with successful coworkers can be motivating, but it can also trigger envy. The authors' research suggests that such feelings may cause real damage, both to your own career and to your organization's success. Denying or concealing envy makes the problem worse. To help you manage your feelings, the authors offer mental exercises to bring out your most generous self. By confronting your feelings and replacing negative habits of thinking with more productive ones, you will become more open to others, more receptive to change, and more fulfilled at work.
