How to survive a Toxic Boss

What a great episode! I felt comforted after listening to it. For some time now, I have not allowed myself to accept the signs of how my boss was treating me and my colleagues. I knew deep down that it felt like bullying. This episode confirmed those feelings and reassured me that I am on the right track to exiting this situation. Thank you so much, ladies, for sharing your wisdom.
