    Great article I am work in process.

  • Scared

    I am dealing with a person who wishes to constantly attempt to exert power over me, undercut my opinions or make me appear foolish or unreasonable in front of others. This person is well-known and has a ‘following’ of sorts of those who either do not oppose her ways or go along with them to win her favor, since being on her ‘bad’ side would not be an option for that.
    This is an adult situation in a board room setting. I am a new member and she is a seasoned one. I am nervous about how things will go throughout the year, and am trying to be logical and orderly about the situation, but it is hard to know how to approach this when she may have already tainted other’s views of me.
