Sometimes the workplace can be a minefield, especially for those prone to anxiety or perfectionism. Performance reviews, pressure to meet deadlines or deliver in a team, or simply wanting to make a good impression. Emotional stumbling blocks like these can make the workplace feel hostile even when it isn’t.
Unfortunately there are other workplaces where hostility does dominate. It may be overt or covert, and those caught up in this kind of atmosphere will eventually be worn down emotionally. Do they leave to find another job, or stand their ground and try to make things more bearable?
The answer to that depends on the individual, how important the work role is to them, the level of assertiveness they are willing to learn and apply, and many other factors that only the individual, in consultation with their values, can ultimately decide upon.
If this sounds like something you are experiencing, let our psychologists help you sift through the dilemma as you see it, help you identify your preferences, take account of all of your thoughts and feelings you have been struggling with, so that together you can find the best direction for you.
Note that sometimes problems in the workplace can escalate to outright bullying. See our Workplace Bullying page for more on this.
