RETALIATION AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL

Why CEOs, Boards of Directors and HR need to Change the Culture.

Have you ever walked into a situation where a person is being belittled or bullied in the workplace? What have you witnessed in the workplace that was uncomfortable, reproachable, or just unacceptable? Have you stepped in or has fear of losing your job stopped you? Did the workplace also promote a common vision and set of values with the goal of enhancing respect and collaboration across the workforce? I was a part of an organization that reflected both aspects of the above behaviors. The company promoted the need for a respectful work culture while tolerating disrespectful and hurtful behavior that undermined the stated and documented common vision and values. I was a top performer and was included in a high-performance mentor program where a senior vice president was assigned to mentor me. When I faced some uncomfortable situations with a particular executive, I set some boundaries in a one-on-one discussion, believing I could continue working with this individual. I never expected the outcome that would come from this discussion and how my world would be turned upside down.
