    As a manager, is it ok to cry in front of your employees? (Your thoughts...)

    Some see crying as a sign of weakness, others believe that tears make us all human; what do you think?

    Crying in the office is a projection of helplessness, being caught doing something wrong or not being able to handle a situation or challenge.

    In either case, none of these are admirable qualities of a professional who works in the office.

    Therefore, one is not setting a good example in front of one's employees by displaying lack of good qualities. This will lower the morale and confidence of the employees.

    there is nothing with crying in itself. however a boss crying in front of his/her employee's is a little circumstatial. are they friends and he/she is venting on something? that ok outside the work place. however in the work place i believe they must stay professional and keep their emotions in check.
