Corporate Gaslighting Is Still On Fire …

Hello there …

Recently I spoke to a couple of people who told me about the experience they were having at work. Or should I say the bad experience they are having at work … and when I told them about Corporate Gaslighting, they looked at me as if they had literally found safety.

Unsurprisingly, this is not only because they were enduring the slow, systematic destruction of their confidence by a bad boss. but were being made to feel this was all their own fault.

While there are quite a lot of stories on the Corporate Gaslighting, it has not had many new stories come in.

I get it, it’s hard and scary.

But what I will say is this.

Not only is everything totally anonymous – and if you ever change your mind, I’ll do whatever works for you – the reality is sending in your story has 2 really tangible benefits.

The first is you feel a release in letting it out.

Part of the horror of being made to feel worthless at work is you keep it to yourself.

Of course you do, you’re made to feel you’re the failure so why would you ever want to tell anyone that.

That pressure can be hugely debilitating so letting it out not only helps you breathe again, it helps you start being in control of your situation rather than having that situation control you.

Second is your story will help others going through it.

Everyone who has written in has expressed their gratitude to read other stories like theirs.

It helps them know they’re not alone.

It’s not them.

It isn’t right.

So if you – or anyone you know – is facing this horrific situation at work with a bad boss, can you please point them to … because even if they don’t want to submit their own story, reading others might help them feel they can get out of this, and for that alone, it’s worth it.

Thank you.

If things go down as I think they’re going to go down, there will be a lot of bad treatment. Except it will be with hundreds at a time, not just one.

Still one of the best things go you’ve ever done.

Bazza is right. There will be a lot of people who will need the support of your initiative Robert. There may be reasons everyone will sadly understand for having to let people go, but we will see some cold acts by some companies.

I really hope the positive attitude change we have started to witness with some companies extends to how they deal with the hardest decisions. I feel if they don’t, the public will not accept it so easily and corporate gaslighting may change in tone from those who have suffered, to those who won’t take it without a fight.

That would be a small positive in what I fear is going to be one of the most challenging times for the entire industry. Possibly all industries.
