In a few weeks my co-workers and I will be participating in a coaching session that was initiated by our COO and HR Director. We have all met with the 'coach' in one on ones and this will be our 'group' session.
I am a little apprehensive about this as there are some underlying issues that brought this training on.
I work with two other supervisors and a manager all of whom have conspired to drive me out of the department. I have been falsely accused of threatening another supervisor and creating a hostile work environment. When I have talked to the manager about this he has said that I need to be thicker skinned.
He has been the orchestrator of the environment in the department and he has coluded with the two supervisors to strip me of all my responsibilities.
This guy has proceeded to effectivley ruin my career over the course of the last 10 months. The Senior VP is unwilling to step in and do anything about him because he is the person who hired him back after he left the company for a few years.
I do not want this coaching session to turn into a free for all with me defending myself against all of them. What kind of advice can you give me in this circumstance?
