Why engineers can be great at dealing with emotions at work once they get the manual.

TED-like talk for the Airbus Group Leadership University Trainer day held in Toulouse on 11 December 2014.
A few perspectives on how to bring soft subjects like "emotions at work" to engineers, using metaphors that speak to them :
- Emotions as a process (engine metaphor)
- Emotions as chemistry (what is happening to my body and why?)
- Emotions as tools (how can I be an emotions augmented manager?)
