Want career success? Don’t cry at work
Thanks to Dick Cheney’s new memoir, crying in the workplace is back in the news. In it, Cheney snidely describes former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as “tearfully” conceding he’d been right about not needing to apologize for the now-infamous line in Bush’s 2003 State of the Union about Iraq’s alleged quest for uranium in Niger.
But you don’t have to be a high-ranking official for on-the-job tears to tarnish your reputation. Among rank-and-filers, crying at work is often met with the same negative reaction.
