About the event
Gaslighting is a colloquialism that is loosely defined as making someone question their reality. The term is also used informally to describe someone who persistently puts forth a false narrative which leads another person to doubt their own perceptions to the extent that they become distressed.
Too many people suffer in silence. We are gaslighted, told that it is our fault for the pain inflicted on us by these toxic managers. Some of us are put on PIPs (Performance Improvement Plans), not as a way to "improve" but as a means for HR to protect the toxic manager and the "company" from liability.
When high performers become quiet and disinterested and are then labeled low performers, we as leaders must understand why.
During this call, Mita Mallick will discuss findings from her article, "How to Intervene When a Manager is Gaslighting Their Employees," recently published in Harvard Business Review.
