This cast helps you deal with the moment when your boss is angry with you.
We've often said that it's perfectly acceptable to bring our human emotions to work. It must be, because we all do. We all have moments when we're angry, annoyed, proud, amused, and even elated. Not only do we have all these emotions, our bosses do too. And sometimes, our bosses let their emotions get the better of them and they let us know that right now, something we did ticked them off and 'made them mad'. (If you've been listening a long time, you'll know we don't believe that other people can 'make' you anything, but since that's common language, it's what we'll use here).
So, in the moment, when your boss is shouting in person or down the phone, what do you do? Or maybe your boss isn't a shouter – he's doing the quiet, steely-eyed thing, but you know he's angry? This cast will help you deal with that situation.
