About the event
Most of us have experienced being in both the in-group and the out-group at one point in our lives. In-groupers have a sense of belonging and identity tied to the group, especially if we judge our group to be different from other groups. Poor management of in- versus out-group dynamics is a key component in creating situations that can eventually evolve into workplace mobbing. Mobbing happens when a group of people works together directly or indirectly to remove the targeted individual. Mobbing is rooted in groupthink and group aggression with underlying elements of fear, competition, and envy. Unlike bullying, mobbing is not hierarchical. The target is usually labeled the troublemaker and is isolated within the organization
