Victims, Villains and Heroes
Managing Emotions in the Workplace
“All the world’s a stage
And all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and their entrances
And one man in his time plays many parts.”
Enter, Stage Left…
We are all actors in a play, for which the stage is set every day, in every workplace. Owners, managers, employees, customers and suppliers are all part of the constant, swirling emotional drama, a drama we call The Plot, involving victims, villains and heroes.
