SYNOPSIS | A hilarious guide to effectively expressing your emotions at the office, finding fulfilment, and defining work-life balance on your own terms.

Drawing on what we've learned from behavioural economics, psychology, and our own experiences at countless organisations, we'll show you how to bring your best self (and your whole self) to work every day.
