Curious1 Posted February 25, 2021 Share Posted February 25, 2021 I tried to stand up for myself against a psychopath in my workplace who has been making my life a misery, this backfired. This person is highly educated and they are respected because of this, their work outputs however are not as high as others at their level, they like to have responsibility without doing the work, they are cold, intimidating, manipulative and entirely lacking in empathy, they seem to charm the right people however. Higher management sought to silence me when I spoke about this person's conduct, for some reason this person just gets away with ill treatment of others and never accepts that they are in the wrong, anyone who challenges them is seen as being disrespectful of them. I am now being shunned by other staff, isolated and lacking support. I am trying to get another job but progression in my specialism seems to result in interviews with people connected to this person who maybe don't know what they are really like. I have had a few interviews now, feedback is almost identical each time, along the lines of I'm appointable but someone else was a better fit. I struggle to maintain my focus, which I need to do until I can move on. My confidence has also been knocked. Any advice on keeping motivated in this situation and successfully moving on is a appreciated. I don't go into detail about what I have been subjected to given this is a public forum, I have not had to deal with someone like this before. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
