Sometimes they really are out to get you. When someone in a position of leadership or influences encourages others to turn against you, there’s no telling how far people will go. Whether in the workplace, community or family, group aggression is a patterned and predictable social phenomenon that includes gossip, accusations, sabotage and shunning. In Mobbed! What to Do When They Are Really Out to Get You, Janice Harper draws on studies in anthropology, psychology, organizational cultures, genocide and animal behavior to show how and why group bullying unfolds. With chapters on how to protect yourself emotionally, socially and professionally, Mobbed! may just save your job and sanity if you (or someone you love) becomes a target of group aggression.
