    Have you ever experienced workplace mobbing? 

    Sophie Henshaw - Mobbing is “bullying on steroids,” a horrifying new trend whereby a bully enlists co-workers to collude in a relentless campaign of psychological terror against a hapless target.  Targets are usually anyone who is “different” from the organizational norm. Usually victims are competent, educated, resilient, outspoken, challenge the status quo, are more empathetic or attractive and tend to be women, aged 32 to 55. Targets also can be racially different or part of a minority group.

    Have you ever been the victim of mobbing? Have you ever been a participant of mobbing in the workplace?  Have you ever witnessed someone display such behavior in the workplace?

      Yes. I didn't know it had a name. It was horrible. The only reason I didn't quit was because I wasn't going to give them the satisfaction of thinking they had beat me. I'll be honest, I haven't found a way to trust any women again.
