David speaks with author Anne Kreamer about her new book It’s Always Personal: Emotion in the New Workplace. This books examines the role of emotion in a professional setting. Common knowledge tells us that getting emotional at work is wrong. Crying or showing any type of negative emotion makes a worker seem weak and unable to handle the stresses of a professional setting. However, this book debunks all these myths and provides some eye-opening realities like the fact that men cry more in the workplace, saleswomen actually make MORE money when ovulating, and that emotions often lead to better health and productivity.
