I have been asked if the following is considered gas lighting. It was on an annual performance report of a friend who has been pursuing a promotion and was overlooked, which seems a bit fishy.
I need your feedback ladies. I do agree that it "feels" wrong. How do I advise this person? What should she do?
"I have invested in putting you in positions that match your strengths and interests that may result in the recognition you desire. However, your output, productivity and overall performance does not match your focus on advancement.
I believe in you professionally and personally, and I need your partnership to move the department and your career forward."
