In today's episode, I was delighted to have one of my favorite voices on the topic of workplace culture as my guest: Heidi Lynne Kurter.
Heidi shares her personal story of being the target of a relentless workplace bully as well as other very painful losses she's endured; her harrowing story had me in tears, so have tissues ready.
The day her female workplace bully thought SHE won, Heidi left work and went home and wrote her very first article for Forbes about workplace bullying. That brave pivot at a devastating time was the start of an incredible journey for Heidi and she hasn't looked back since. As always, we wrap up the episode with Heidi sharing what she feels is the most important quality of a gentlewoman to emulate today - her choice is spot on, especially as the pandemic rages on around us.
I just know this episode is going to resonate with so many of you. If you are being bullied at work, at school or even at home, please KNOW you are not alone, we are here for you!
