Crying doesn’t work as a tactic. Except maybe with that cute cop who’s about to give you a speeding ticket. But not with your boss. So what should you do instead? Own it.  If you make a mistake? Admit you were wrong. If you are self-aware enough to admit this, then you won’t be taken by surprise when the boss tells you what you did wrong. Dodge it.

Go for a run, take a walk, hop on that hot yoga mat around the corner. By Jane Miller
