E58: Workplace Cliques

Check out the episode here!

“You can’t sit with us!” This famous quote from the popular 2004 movie,  Mean Girls , highlights the negativity and exclusion that can occur when one does not fit into a clique. And, although cliques seem so high school, unfortunately, those behaviors carry over into the workplace. Friendships are encouraged in the workplace, but there is a risk considering cliques can contaminate the entire workplace. Alysa explores friendships vs. cliques, the impact of cliques and exclusion on feelings of loneliness, and what we can do combat a situation that can impact workers emotionally, socially, and in their quest to succeed at their career.  www.bestforeverspod.com    Share Your Friendship Stories with Alysa!
