Dear readers, with this blog turning ten years old in December, I’ve been spending some time looking at some of my earlier posts. Not surprisingly, the most common and popular topics have pertained to workplace bullying, mobbing, and abuse.
Drawing from the first five years of Minding the Workplace, the following dozen articles on bullying and related topics have proven to be the most popular with readers, as measured by search engine “hits.” (The numbers range from around 5,000 to nearly 30,000 — the latter being the article on gaslighting as a workplace bullying tactic.) In recent years, I’ve revised some of these entries to incorporate new information and insights.
Especially for those of you who have discovered this blog in more recent years, perhaps these “vintage” pieces may be of interest.
