Discussion Question

My nasty coworker

I have a coworker who plays this psychological warfare on me. How do I deal with her nasty attitude, and manipulating disposition?

    Or perhaps she is a psychopath or has a personality disorder.

    I've had this same experience where they won over the boss but were extremely nasty to me. My advice: find a new job where you're treated with respect and kindness.

    I had the same type of coworker, who I now recognize as a sociopath, as she was constantly lying to the boss about me, playing manipulative games to benefit her and antagonize me, and she had no remorse or empathy for her behaviors towards me whatsoever--even after I tried to talk to her (her response: "I don't care"). I tried to do my job well, despite her interference. But eventually she won over the boss with her charm and deceit. And as a result, after being assaulted at work by her, I was fired. My advice: steer clear, hope your boss is aware and clear-thinking, and if not start looking for a new job.

Does FairyGodBoss (or anyone else for that matter) have a link to or compiled list of self development books and reading material that have been helpful for other women to read and grow their leadership style, dealings with male leadership, etc.? We've all heard the "read Lean In" speech and there have got to be other reputable books out there on this topic. . . right?

I am an undergraduate student carrying out a research on if women should be allowed to have paid menstrual leave each month. I have some queries regrading the matter and would be grateful if I could get the answers from this discussion board. The questions are 1. Is the policy feasible in real workplace? 2. Are women comfortable to tell their boss to get days off because of menstruation? 3. Would it ensure equality in the workplace? 4. What are the benefits of the policy? 5. How can such a policy be implemented? 6. what would the women do who are in irreplaceable jobs like teachers, doctors and nurses who has to be physically present in their workplace?

What does it take to get one off the ground successfully? I am thinking of starting one at my company and would love to hear from others about how to encourage as many women at my workplace to join and how to make them engaging and interesting for members. Any ideas for events and programming would be much appreciated!
