Not a Front Room Lady

How to be (and not be) a workplace ally

While all employees are important contributors, it’s also important for each employee to have their specific job title and role validated by their colleagues. In this brief video, I share a story sent to me by a young woman who, after spending two years at the job she describes in her email, recently left for greener pastures. Her note reveals how much work there is left to do (internationally) if we are to have workplaces where everyone experiences respect and, also, the value of courageous workplace allies.

Blowing the Whistle on Workplace Crazy: True stories (with names and other identifiers changed to protect the innocent and not-so-innocent) and commentary from a mental health expert/leadership advisor/retired corporate executive. Crazy=bizarre, unexpected, sometimes darkly humorous.

Send your workplace stories to me at with the subject line, “Workplace Crazy.” I’ll share (minus identifying details per your instructions) and respond to them here.
