    My father told me so

    |

    Where do you get your advice?

    A client recently told me that she stayed three years in an abusive work relationship because her 85-year-old father told her she couldn’t afford to leave.  

    Yes, three years with a toxic boss who made her feel small, called her stupid to her face and called out fictitious “mistakes” in front of others. There’s no other word for this behavior: Abuse. And abuse has no place in the workplace.

    Screwdriver or power drill? Which would you use?

    Some writers speculate that this trend is the result of the trauma all of us have experienced with Covid – losing jobs, friends, and family, losing faith in our institutions, and losing a sense of meaning in our work.

    |

    Most people are so shocked by a job loss that their whole lives are turned upside down. They suddenly can’t pay regular bills, they lose their work friends, and they change their sleeping hours. Some even quit dressing and lounge around in underwear or pajamas most of the day.
