Are there days when you don’t want to go to work simply because you don’t want to deal with some difficult person who works there?  Do you get agitated when you pull into the parking lot and see “his car?” Do you feel if this person would just go away, your job would be a lot easier?  But, that person happens to be your boss or a relative of your boss and he isn’t going anywhere!  What can you do about that?

Join host, Judi Moreo, author of “You Are More Than Enough” and guest, Courtney Elizabeth Anderson, the Workplace Relationship Expert, as they explore how you can practice the “Joyful Art of Business,” and look at ways to combine the positive benefits of our professional endeavors (“business”) with the overall return on our efforts (“joy”). Work should not be a chore.  The act of engaging in professional endeavors, in any capacity (i.e., as an employee employer, entrepreneur, contractor, volunteer, paid, full time, part time, intermittently, etc.) is an expression of our ideas and creative endeavors (“art”).

You don’t want to let the negative actions and behaviors of others steal your joy.  By understanding that many people lack confidence and are unhappy which affects the way they behave, and by boosting our own self-confidence, we can improve our relationships.  “When people are confident, when they think they are good at something, regardless of how good they actually are, they display a lot of confident nonverbal and verbal behavior.  When they are faking confidence is usually when the difficult behavior arises.”  Anderson believes that truly confident people don’t alienate others.    Listen in and learn how you can boost your confidence and deal with those who are currently making your life miserable.
