Special: Crying at Work

Special episode

In this episode...

Crying at work is probably more common than you think—but it’s probably also the place we’d least like to cry. Dripping with snot in front of your boss really doesn’t have much appeal. The experience can haunt you for years—whether you were the one crying or not. So what makes it so agonising?

In this special, you’ll hear leaders and employees share how crying at work has changed them, how stereotypes still impact our perspectives on crying, what managers should do when faced with this situation—and what they definitely should not do.
