Have you ever walked away from a conversation with a co-worker or family member shaking your head and wondering, “Where did that come from?”
In their new book, HeadTrash 2: Dealing with and Overcoming Other People’s Junk, authors Tish Squillaro and Tim Thomas offer practical tips for identifying and dealing with the emotional baggage in other people’s heads (i.e., “head trash”) in ways that can foster healthy relationships and protect your career.
The book gets into the root causes of head trash, which is often linked to underlying emotions such as anger, arrogance, control, fear, insecurity, guilt or paranoia. Based on their decades as business consultants and coaches working with CEOs to help them navigate through negative behaviors in those around them, the book provides valuable checklists and quizzes to help the reader identify and deal with emotional baggage in others.
