Love at Work. Seemed like a good idea at the time!

Are workplace relationships a blessing or a curse for your career? In this episode of 'Every Step,' hosts Krystyna Weston and Judith Beck discuss a number of real life, love at work scenarios, with the insightful presence of Elizabeth Best, a seasoned Journalist and the host of the podcast 'Ghost of Boyfriend Past.'  This is Part Two. Tune in for Part One of our exploration into the world of love amidst office cubicles.

The scenarios explored in this episode include:

  • You are in your late 20s single and fabulous, working in a new team with other 20-something people and you find yourself attracted to one of your team members - What would you do if they asked you out for a drink after work?
  • What would you do if your boss asked you out and you had no interest?
  • What would you do if you were interested?
  • You have been dating someone in your team, and are now no longer interested in going out with them. How do you break it off without damaging the work relationship?
  • You have been dating someone more senior for a while in your team and people have been making comments of favouritism - how do you handle the situation?
  • What would you do if you heard that the person you used to date is spreading rumours about you and has even sent a  personal text from you to others?
  • You are at a work function and everyone is having fun. John who you work with looks pretty good all of a sudden.  You have an amazing night, however, things are different in the light of day. You are not interested anymore, however, John thinks he has found his soul mate. What do you do?
