    Does it happen – yes it does, I’ve seen it. Its not only one on one either, I’ve seen instances whre a clique combines to undermine an non clique member.

    Is there an answer – if there is I can’t really see it. Short of a massive indoctrination campaign, or prescribing office practices so toghtly that people can’t express themselves or their individuality, there doesn’t seem to be a way to stop it.

    The only suggestion I can make is – as an outsider – to watch to see if its happening to others, and if you see it, think about how youcan best address it (or possibly taking the difficult decision NOT to address it directly, as intervention, however well intentioned, can often turn the situation worse).
