I’m here with Bob McGannon discussing pretend employees. Pretend employees hide themselves and contribute to creating a toxic workplace. Pretend employees can be workers, leaders, bosses, CEOs and customers.
In this video we talk about the Blind Victim. From a gestalt perspective this is an employee who is characteristically a “Projector”. In the gestalt cycle, they are unable to take action for their feelings and exert themselves into the world – so they attribute parts of themselves externally. It usually manifests as blaming others for things inside themselves and not seeing themselves clearly.
