I was frightened of her. My heart would beat extra quick as I approached her desk to pass her my completed task and I would quake in fear when she spoke to me.
No, this wasn’t a scene from my childhood. This very situation took place just a few years ago, at a previous workplace. My then-senior in the office just didn’t seem to approve of the work I did and sometimes would throw scathing words towards me – nothing I did was up to her standard. So anxious I was around her that I started making more and more silly mistakes. Needless to say, my work performance was badly affected by my senior’s treatment.
