Docpotter, I have a question! (Click to ask)
I work in an all female environment and lately things have taken a bad turn.
A new lead secretary was added to our team and she has taken an immediate dislike to me. She acts as if I'm not part of the team and the other girls are following her lead. They are leaving me out of team plans. I'm the last one called for team meetings as if I'm an after thought. It's almost as if they have all formed an alliance against me. The lead will say good morning to everyone but me. Petty remarks are being made behind my back. Should I ignore it and hope it will die a timely death? I've remained professional through all the sniping but it is tiresome. My husband says stay the course and the people that count know who I really am. Any advise on how to deal with catty, nasty females would be appreciated. it is tiresome
Your husband is wrong. This
situation will only get worse
The solution is to accept what is
and respond accordingly -
Machaviallian principle - Do you
want to win? Or do you
Take lead secretary aside and talk with
Can you do it?
If so, never NEVER reveal your deception.
When in a disfunctional situation
- manipulate! Or leave.
