#TChat Radio is all new and live Wednesday, October 2, 2013, at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT), with the #TChat Twitter chat right after from 7-8 pm ET.
Last week we talked about the rub of transparency and privacy in the workplace between employer and employee, and this week we're talking about engaging the dark side of workplace effectiveness.
Yes, the dark side. Contemporary organizations focus on trying to maintain upbeat hyper-positive work ecologies. Anger has to be managed; depression requires medication; shame becomes a disciplinary tool; guilt is the subtext of the employee manual; grief is allotted three days; family crises are never lunchroom conversations. 
What if the key to maximum effectiveness was the celebration of these dark emotions and moods? What if we recognized that each of the darker, unacceptable emotions were treasure troves of insight and results? What if organizational adaptability depended on employing the full person not just the razor thin, Prozac enhanced person?
What if indeed. Let's discuss.
Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we welcome our special guests: John Sumser, the founder and editor-in-chief of the HRExaminer Online Magazine and the principal of Two Color Hat; and William Tincup, the CEO of HR consultancy Tincup & Co. and a leading thinker on social media application for HR and an expert on adoption of HR technology.
This will be another important #TChat show about engaging the world of work's dark side, so join us!
