Do you find satisfaction and fulfillment at work? You spend many hours there so if you don’t, that can be a huge problem. In this episode, I’ve found some experts on the workplace to discuss this vital issue. What do studies show are the most important factors in being happy at work? The results are surprising! How does what’s called your “attachment style” affect your work? We’ll cover those two huge topics today as well as what you can do about it if you’re not as happy as you want to be.

Our listener email today is from a parent who’s trying to get her teenage daughter to be more comfortable expressing her feelings… and realizes that she’s actually asking a question more about herself than her child.
