Are You Being Too Positive at Work?
On the Feb. 15, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I had an hour-long quite candid exchange with Todd Kashdan, author of The Upside of Your Dark Side. His book argues that we'd be wise to supplement the traditionally upbeat American way of being in the workplace with such "no-nos" as anger, anxiety, invoking guilt, and even narcissism.
Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Sunday from 11 AM to noon here on KALW 91.7 in the San Francisco Bay Area and worldwide on kalw.org. It's archived for a week on NPR.org and available in perpetuity in iTunes and on KALW.org.
