How do you deal with other women not having your back?
"I don't get it," whined my friend. "She clearly felt threatened, but I don't know why. She's a senior manager and I'm entry level. And I'm not even interested in her department!"
I agreed that it didn't make that much sense. But maybe the woman felt threatened that the boss sought expertise from outside the department. Maybe she doesn't like working in groups. Or perhaps she just didn't like my friend. But for whatever reason, she went out of her way to be ornery.
Luckily my friend's team project will be short-lived, but this incident got me thinking:How do I usually deal with shady women?
