Story: One day at work, I was frustrated with the progress on a particular project and found myself snapping crossly at a junior member of staff. I was 25, managing a team of people who were all older than me. I left the exchange still cross and then came back later to apologise for my behaviour. Six months later, she spoke to me again for the first time. She never quite looked at me the same way again. I learned the hard way to keep my temper in check at work, in particular with people I line manage.
