Hana Tan, a recently employed college graduate was in the midst of her training program when her
manager’s manager, a fellow named Eric, humiliated her, in her view, in front of her training group by
criticizing her use of a ponytail. She wondered, “Should I quit? Do I have to take this stuff to get ahead?

Goffman’s presentation of self, embeddedness and the role of frank feedback.
