How to Not Show Frustration at Work

It is best for your career if you do not throw a paperweight violently at the wall every time the pressure mounts.  Instead, listen to Alyson Paige, who offers four steps to quieting the frustration you feel at work. Begin by opening the lines to communication so that people feel free to discuss issues before they boil into something catastrophic. Then make a list of all the positive things that are happening in the margins of these frustrating situations and hang on to that for support. Take the genuinely overwhelming problems to your team and brainstorm solutions together. Finally, visualize the success at the other end of the frustration, and work on outcomes that drive toward that image. Cling to hope more than your sturdy, dented paperweight.
